Finally, after SO decided to extend our LDR time, we are under the 10 week mark on my count down. 🙂
But a big chunk of that is some Army summer training for him. No contact for a month. Except letters.
I have a military family so I’ve lived through my closest people going to Basic or Boot Camp which are way longer, but I still think it might get a little hard.
So far I’ve preplanned July to be busy as all hell, so I actually do something besides dwell on it. Any other advice?

Take some time for you. Don’t just run yourself ragged. Get your nails done, get a massage. Have a mimosa for no reason.

Mattyfeets: Do you work? If not, can you maybe get involved in some volunteer groups? pick up a hobby? Do you have a checklist for yourself of the things you need to get done for the wedding? <br /><br />I give you military wives a lot of credit. I couldn’t do what you do.

I just went through this. Letters helped so much. Even though I couldn’t actually talk to him, just writing down everything that had happened that day made it much easier. I wrote a letter every day even before I had his address. When I finally got it, I sent them all at once. I also included at least one picture in each letter, either a new one or an old one of us. He really appreciated that. As for me, I just kept myself busy. Luckily I have a really supportive family in the area and they made sure I was getting out of the house at least once a week not including work. Don’t drive yourself crazy. The time really will fly by.
I still have 10 weeks in our LDR too. So I will be right there with you. Just use the letters as an outlet and cherish any letter you receive from him.
