It’s not easy, i know..i’ve been away from my now husband 2 weeks the max and i think it helped the fact we have 3 kids! But now it’s just me and our 5 years old and i play a lot with her. If not, i would read till i dropped!

That’s hard. I’d take the time focus on myself. Go out with friends you haven’t seen in awhile, watch girly movies, give yourself beauty treatments, organize something you’ve been putting off around the house, etc etc etc. Enjoy some ‘you’ time.

Good luck- I was just apart from DH for 3 weeks and it actually flew by! I just kept myself busy, stocked up on great wine, saw old friends, went to the beach, etc. as listed above. It was actually fun having the house to myself 🙂

We were long distance from MO to NM for the first 8 months we were married. and the year and a half prior to our wedding. Just keep busy and keep on your regular routinue. 🙂 Sitting at home moping is the worst thing you can do. Time will fly by before you know it!

I’m in a similar situation now. Just be glad it is only a month. When DH took his new job, I thought I would be able to follow in 8 months but it looksl ike it will be a full 13 months before I can finally move to be with him. In my case, grad school kept me here and I was not able to rush my research as I had hoped. To be honest, living a part has been hard BUT a month is totally doable. On the plus side, you will have that month to think about furniture moving and get rid of stuff you don’t need. Also, a month is short enough that you will still be super excited and he will still see the new city as new so you can explore and settle there  together. Maybe you can also look into using that month to transfer your license and start searching for an ew job?
