now it's really real [Jun. 29th, 2008|08:25 am]
Zoethe
Just dropped Ferrett off at the airprt. Six weeks without my sweetie. I feel sort of ridiculous, complaining about it - after all, it's not like he's going off to war for an eighteen month stint. He'll be having fun and learning new skills and it will be awesome.

But I'm gonna miss him. Even though I have plenty to do and lots of friends eager to keep me company, life's just not the same when your honey isn't around.

More like rewatch all the movies he can't believe I can watch over and over and over.

While working on the Neverending Project. Boy, life will be awesome when I get that done.

There are a LOT of things you can get done when they're not around.

I've got two more weeks, no, three? WITH Dan and I'm already feeling a bit smothered. There are advantages to the space, that's for sure!

Oh no doubt I'll get plenty done. But I reserve the right to pout at least a little!!!

Yes, the beginning is pout time! I'll be a bit sulky in August, I'm sure, until I get into the swing of things, then I'll be dancing round the house.

And let me tell you--the reunions are GLORIOUS. :D

The first time Dan came home, I hadn't seen him for something like nine months? A long time, anyways. Well, he was in the taxi on the way from the airport and called me on his cell phone, and I was on the front porch, and I barfed. I BARFED! I was so giddy and nervous, it was almost like our wedding day or something all over again!

My boy has been on the road for seven weeks, and is likely to be away for another three months.

I understand.

Man, I wish i could launch the husband somewhere for six weeks. Longer if possible.

But I guess it's different when you like each other and stuff.

I like mine and am still glad that I only see him about half a year, if that much!

I hear you. I've only been out in CA for 5 full days, and Steve is already asking when I am coming home (3 more weeks!) I suppose the sad part is even though I am having a lot of fun with my family and friends here, I want to go home, too.

I want him to have a great time - it's an amazing opportunity.

But I will miss him.

I know--the hard part is the first couple of days, when you can't quite figure out what to do with yourself.

Hugs - I can relate - brian1789 is going to be away for that amount of time as well, beginning tomorrow. (He does come back for 2 days midway, thankfully, but still, it'll be 6 weeks mostly without him).

I understand completely - not wanting to be away from Jer and my doggies is what motivated me to choose Native North American cultures as my area of focus. At the most, I might have to go and spend a couple months with a Native group, but at least I'll be close enough to visit home on weekends.

That definitely will be easier than Africa or New Zealand, certainly!

How far is he? Since Dan is 995 miles away most of the time, there are songs that are all about 1000 miles...there is a Hoodoo gurus song, or I sing the 500 miles song or something goofy like that.

Also I find that we bond VERY well because when all you have is a phone, you can only talk. REALLY talk. Now that we are in the same state, there is a lot of movie watching, game playing, doing chores in different parts of the house, and we don't have that one hour a day where we just talk about life, the universe, and everything, unless we REALLY make an effort to.

He's in San Diego - way more than 500 or 1000 miles.

And, yeah, we did the long-distance relationship for a while. It does strip everything down to the real stuff.

Aw poop, no cheesy songs I can think of, now. :(

Just call him up and ask him to put on his robe and wizard hat. Hotness will ensue.

Go on and pout, you've earned the right, I think. :-)

And then fantasize about the freedom.....err...I mean the reunion. Yeah, the reunion. :-D

I know how it feels- I'm spending all summer away from my boyfriend, and while I feel bad because I hadn't been home for more than a week in 2 years, I still miss him a lot. :(
