I know how you feel…in a way.  I’ve only been doing this 2 years and you’ve been going at it for 6.5 years.   Props to you for being so strong.  My DH was supposed to be moving home in September (I’m in Colorado and he’s in Louisiana) but he found out the other day it will be sometime in October.  It’s only a month, but when you’ve been waiting for this day for literally years, sometimes one extra month can feel like a  year!

I guess one comfort is he’ll only be 5 hours away (I know, it’s no comparison to having him there with you).  My family lives 5 hours away and I can easily make that drive home and spend the weekend with him.

Just try to stay focused that the countdown is on.  Our countdowns until our hubbies are with us are pretty close together, so it should be under or around 100 days 🙂

We had to wait until our careers let us be in the same place – 6 years. FI is finally moving in and we’re getting married. We both agreed that if one of us had to sacrifice career possibilities we’d spend the rest of our lives being annoyed (the person who sacrificed) and guilty (the person who forced the sacrifice). Hang in there. Do the best for yourself and your career so you can be a strong, happy, independent person, which is hopefully the person he wants you to be.

I know it’s so tough to be in a LDR.  Also, we had to move with shortish notice last summer.  It’s hard with the economy being so slow right now and you have to jump at whatever jobs you are offered.  Do you have a better chance of finding a job anywhere than he does?  That is what played into us moving over the summer because I could fiind a job easier than he could.
