So.  Hod and I have been married 7 months on Sunday.  Because of changes in our life I am currently living with my sweet parents, and Hod is staying with friends back in our old town until he finishes his last week of classes.  This saves us an entire month's worth of rent.  Great for the wallet.  Not so good for the heart.  In the past 7 months, Hod and I have never spent a night in separate houses.  And here we are, 3 hours away, and part of me feels like it's the end of the world.  I'm so pathetic!  I mean, really, I have a niece who's husband did a tour in Iraq.  (and another niece who's husband did Iraq before they were married.)  She had to deal with sleeping alone.  And then there is my sister, L6.  Her hubby is a pilot and is gone for days at a time.  She is a single mom for half of her life.  And THEN there is sister L3 who's husband died of cancer and she spent YEARS alone before she found her current hubby (whom we all love).

And yet I'm here, being super lonely.  I may have cried a bit.  I AM SO LAME!  This is stupid.  Then again, when you have a husband as hunky as Hod, you tend to miss him.

Anything like this is hard the first few times it happens. But when you have to live with it day in and day out, you do get used to it.

Look on the even better side: 100 years ago it would have been a couple of DAYS travel, and you couldn't have even called him!

Query: which nieces are you talking about? L2's eldest was married when her hubby was in Iraq. L4's oldest came home training to GO to Iraq to get married, and then shipped out. So that niece was married too. Am I missing anyone else?

After Artene and I were first married, his job started sending him out of town for 3-7 days at a time. It was AWFUL! You have every right to be missin' your handsome husband! You keep on loving him just the way you are.

It is still hard for me to be away from Ricky for more than what he works. When he spends the night somewhere else for his job is super hard for me.
