Bed.....And Breakfast?

My boyfriend has been in Florida for almost 6 weeks.... and there are 4 more to go until his return.

This is our bed. He usually sleeps on the right side. I have found a replacement for him- books. And lots of them. This current pile is two New Yorkers, a Newsweek, "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" by David Foster Wallace and Volume I of "Pattern Language" by Christopher Alexander. The pile ebbs and flows but it is my constant companion while the boyfriend is gone. I have even learned to make the bed around them.

I can't figure out if this is sad.... or just maturity. At least there are no coffee mugs and toast crumbs mixed in with the books.

its maturity, at least there is no one else!

Oh that isn't bad at all! I was picturing larger stacks of books and perhaps some opened/nonopened mail and what's with the no sharp objects?
