I miss my friend

Remember on Friday when I was all excited about being alone? Yeah, I'm bored now and I want my best friend to come home. There is a line in Bridget Jones's Diary when her folks get back together and her dad says "I just don't work without you". That's about how I feel right now. Blah, blah independent this and independent that. I can be independent, I AM independent. I enjoy my time and have relished my days and nights. But I miss him and I need a hug.

Like the last time he went away on business, he has hidden cards and treats around the house. Everyday when he calls it is a treasure hunt to find the next card. I packed him some goodies too (chap stick, sudoku books, cards) and as much as I love the cards, this girl needs a hug.

I'm sure I sound pathetic, especially to Golightly who has what, 35 days?, till her deployed Cowboy comes back after months and to all those in long distance relationships. And I am pathetic, but I just want to see my friend again. I want him home and safe.

For what it's worth, I don't think you're pathetic. :) It's 2 weeks. That's half a month!

Tai was gone for one freaking night and I was so sad. I couldn't sleep. It felt like my left arm was missing! I don't think you are pathetic at all!

My honey is leaving for China and I'm bummed too. I know I can be alone but I just don't want to! (I'm stomping my feet for effect!)

I feel your pain...

Two weeks in affianced time is actually, like, seven months. Hang in there!

Ugh, we did the long distance thing for 2 years. After that we can't really be seperated. We've spent one whole day and night apart and that was bad enough.

Good luck and hopefully it'll end soon.

That's great that you miss him! Remember "absence makes the heart grow fonder". Plan something fun for his return, surprise him!
