Long distance sucks. When my husband and I were still dating, he decided to go to grad school- in Italy. We talked about it and decided I should stay here as I had my own grad school plans, but we did get engaged before he left. The deal was that I let him go do his thing, I'd get into school somewhere, and then he'd move to be with me and we'd get married. It was a hard time apart, so I can relate. (My dad died the week before I started grad school and my hubby-to-be was still off in Italy, so that was really tough.) But it is fun to have wedding plans to keep distracted.

I remember when I used to complain about missing him, my husband's grandparents would tell me about when they were separated during the war. They got engaged just before Grandpa was shipped off to Europe. In the FOUR YEARS they were apart, she got one phone call and hundreds of letters that were months out of date. No email in those days...

So I guess things are easier now? Only I think the instantaneous nature of our culture today makes it harder to stand the wait. If you can talk to him/IM/email, you get a taste of what it could be like if only he were HERE ALREADY.

Its tough. I feel for you.


Well, I was going to post that I hope you feel better, but it seems like you talked yourself out of feeling bad by the end there! :)

Regardless, I hope you feel better. This will all be over soon, before you know it. Can you believe it's March already? I'm just getting used to writing '05 on my checks, you know? And it's spring, basically. It's going to go so fast, believe me. You'll be begging for a couple extra days to get everything ready! :) I say yes, enjoy this time; think about this. This is the last time you and S will be the Dynamic Duo, just the two of you, living alone. You should savor this last bit of having your daughter all to yourself. :) You know?


You are doing fabUlous and so on the right track in so many ways. The thing that is SOO great is that despite your fears, you are not letting any of them even remotely stop you. I'm happy you have Cecily, your mom, and Sophia there to support you with all the details!!
love ya


I'm sorry it's so stressful. It's ending soon!


You and Cecily are so fortunate to have each other as friends. True friends are special.

Life is good.

You deserve hapiness baby-cakes! You have come such a long way and I know things will continue to get better and better for you.

Fear is a son-ofa-bitch. But if you can identify it, you are already way ahead of the game.
