@dingedheart, counting it up, 6-8 hours of awake time is about right. I never seem to get enough sleep.
We used to get maybe 30 more minutes for a shower and breakfast, but his schedule changed so that isn't possible right now. We both made arrangements to spend the day together yesterday, and that was lovely.
If I feel even more wanting after the trip and no circumstances have changed, I will have confirmed that the existing relationship can't meet enough of my needs. That will be sad. I imagine I will have learned more about my SO which would be good assuming we continue as friends. I might meet a potential primary on the side of the mountain standing among the mountain goats. I'll also have added a new life experience (mountaineering) and that's always a good thing.
