Sure, I think that would be a good thing.

Although I daresay I'll cope just fine. A week isn't all that long.

I'm just feeling a bit sad. Maybe not so much because of the time he's away, so much as the "can't wait to get away from it all" aspect of it.

But I'm feeling better about that. He called today for something that could have probably waited till Friday. (Although he might have forgotten again that I was seeing him Friday.) For some reason, it made me feel like I don't disappear for him when he goes away. Just like knowing where he's going, even in general terms, anchors him in reality even when he's away. Since I feel better about the vacation, I'm thinking that may have been the issue. A variant on the object constancy issue.
