Mr Doctor is out of town this weekend (for 4 days) for his bachelor party. His friends surprised him with an amazing trip. I so hope that he’s having a great time, but I definitely miss him on this gorgeous Northwest summery weekend.
I’m working most of the weekend and was on call last night, so I’m busy… but still it’s harder to sleep and I keep thinking of cool things that I want to tell him *right now*. He’s not in cell phone range 🙁 And today is our 1 year engag-e-versary!
Anyone else missing their honey right now?

My FH and I met and lived in Chicago until about 2 months ago, when I had to move to Dallas for work. He’s still in Chicago. It’s a beautiful Summer day in Dallas, the pool at my place is packed w/ people, and I’m sitting at home 1/2 trying to work; but mostly missing my honey and obsessing over finding a venue for the wedding! We just got engaged over the Memorial day weekend, and I think it really sucks that I have to be so far away from him…
At least Mr. Doctor will return in 4 days! Think about the positives~ 🙂
Oh, Happy 1 year engageversary!

Aww, DoctorGirl, he’ll be home soon!
I miss my honey more when he’s on call than any other time (which I’m guessing you understand). I mean, after almost 8 years together, all of a sudden he’s not in bed at night! It’s weird. I know it’s something I’m going to need to get used to, but it’s still hard.

I totally feel you!
fizicsGuy had to go to Korea (last minute) last week and is still not sure when he’ll get back. And I’m headed to a conference tomorrow for a week, so no matter what I won’t see him until I get back. It’s a bummer b/c he is pretty much working and sleeping, and the time difference is such that we haven’t talked since he left. He sends me short emails when he gets to his hotel, but so much has been going on for me that I just really wish I could talk to him.
But we’re here for you…and I’m so appreciative of the thoughts other bees have sent me:)

Awww- I’m so glad to share my feelings with you guys and know that you understand.
We did two years of our relationship long distance (California and Washington), so I am very appreciative that FI and I will be together again soon. I have the utmost respect for all of the long-distance brides!

Oh gosh, I needed this post last weekend. My FI went to a friend’s bachelor party for the long weekend (Thurs-Mon) and it was tough. He had cell service, but they were partying hard and I really didn’t want to talk to him because I knew it would just be bad news. Just remember that he’s having the time of his life with his best friends and he will have SO much to tell you when he gets home. You should start a list of things that happened to you this weekend so you don’t forget anything! Enjoy the "me time" and remember that it’s only a few days 🙂

Isn’t it funny how you get into this point of the relationship and you just need to see him at the end of the day. When Mr. BettyBye went for a work conference for just a weekend, Fri – Mon, I missed him so much. I went into his dirty laundry hamper and grabbed one of his undershirts and slept with it under my nose that night.

haha I know what you’re going through. Perpetually missing your SO is the duty of an Army-Wife-To-Be unfortunately. I think it’s hardest when you know they’re coming home SOON, though! I find myself more antsy over our 2 or 3 week waits than I was during the longer ones
And it sucks a big one! I think I called my FI 8 times today (yes, 8) just to update him on my errand-running. I’m sure it drives him nuts, but boy, it sure is nice to have cell phones!

mrbear is on 24-hour call tonight, and he left this morning before i was awake. it’s just strange going to bed at night without him, but the nice thing is when i wake up tomorrow he will be in bed next to me (albeit completely passed out in scrubs, probably).
i don’t know how you army spouses and long-distance ladies do it. you’re amazing.

Wow I miss my hubby like crazy! That darn navy man has been gone for almost a month now and I’m going nuts without him! He gets back on Friday and the anticipation of his return makes it even harder! I wish I could call him like you, ejs4y8, but cell phone or not, getting in touch with a man in the navy while they’re underway is nearly impossible. Emails every few days at least. Those are what get me through this! Ok, just a few more days! But I still miss him so much it hurts!!!

BubblyGroom is in Kenya until the end of the week, and I miss him like crazy. It is 2 a.m. on a Saturday night, and I am reading Weddingbee instead of either cuddled up next to my man. Sigh.
Military wives-to-be, my heart goes out to you. You are strong women!
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right girls? Horrible cliche, but I do find I appreciate my FI more when he’s at home because he travels so much for work. I will just keep telling myself that. It is time for sleep…

<font size=”2″ color=”#81a026″>fizicsGirl</font> I am actually the one in our relationship in Korea now! The 13 hour time difference is hard and I will get home only every 3 weeks. It was really really hard at first, but now we have gotten into a good rhythm of staying in touch, and looking forward to seeing my husband again soon will make this week fly by! I always think of military wives who have it so much harder – longer times apart, less ability to talk/email/webcam, and it helps me know I can get through the few weeks apart if they can do it for longer and further.
But it is still hard!!!

I feel ya, doctorgirl! We got back from the honeymoon last Sunday and my Fi immediately had to start working 12 hour days. During the summers he has really long hours, and even though I’m grateful he isn’t scheduled for Saturdays (yet) and he is only working Mon-Fri, I still miss him a ton. He basically leaves the house at 7 and comes home at 7:30-8 every night, with just enough time to eat some dinner and go to bed. 🙁
I just try to keep myself busy when I’m feeling lonely. I also call my mom a lot. 🙂 And whenever your guy is out of town you can always come on here! Even though my wedding is over, it helps to relive the whole planning and hear everyone’s ideas.

In a similar situation here – I’m home in CT for May & June and he’s back in Ireland – I won’t see him til almost the end of June and it’s the longest we’ve been apart in the 2 years + 9 months we’ve been together. We usually see each other every day… It’s not easy and not fun but then on the flip side when I’m in Ireland (where I live) I’m missing my parents and the rest of the family – no win situation!!! But definitely missing him so so much these days.
And I agree with MrsBear – how do long-distance and military folks do it? I admire your strength ladies! (and gents too!)

I second (or third) my support for the military brides! You deserve medals for your sacrifices.
Fiance is coming home tonight. He managed to call last night, though I was working in the ER and missed his call. He didn’t sound very coherent anyway from the "message" 😉
Funny thing was that he called to tell me about his flight this afternoon, and his voice is gone. He said he and the guys were yelling all weekend. I don’t know if I really want to hear all about this bachelor party… but I hope it was a fabulous time!
Stay strong long distance ladies!
