Oh man…perfect timing for this thread!!!  The last several weeks have been…hard to say the least.  LDRs really stink somtimes.  We were litterally 2 months from the LDR being over (been in one for a little over 2 1/2 years).  And then we got the bomb dropped on us.  Due to some injuries he’s received during his time in the Army, Darling Husband may be medboarding out of the Army…which could take anywhere between 9 months to a year and a half.  I literally hit my brickwall and went into a serious funk.  Darling Husband is having a MRI done today and has another appointment to see if his injuries will qualify him for the medboard.  I really hope he choose not to do the medboard.  I am so torn.  I know he’s in pain and wants to be “fixed”…but at the same time, I say “screw it…come up.  let’s be together, and we’ll figure out how to get you better.”  I seriously don’t think I can emotionally handle being apart from him any longer.  (I would totally move to where he is, but I can’t find a job that pays enough to cover my bills)

1.  If all goes as planned, I’ll be flying to see Darling Husband on Sept. 10th for the weekend. 

2.  Plans for Labor Day?  Most likely assembling my little sister’s wedding invitations!!!

3.  The sweetest thing my Darling Husband has done…honestly, putting up with me the last several weeks during my emotional rollercoaster.  The guy is a saint. lol

This has been the hardest time for me. I dont know when I am going to see my Fiance it has been a month already and due to money constrictions we have no date set to see eachother. It has been pretty upsetting since we have never gone more than a month apart before. Labour Day I will spend with my GFs going to see going the distance lol and having dinner out. My Fiance does romantic things all the time. Lately he has started posting love songs on my FB lol about 1 a day that he thinks make him think of us. Very sweet…

Well, Fiance moved from Seattle(I live in Louisiana) about a month ago so he’s been home for 4 weeks and we’ve loved EVERY minute of it. Yesterday, He moved an hour and 1/2 away (to our newly bought house) to start his new job tomorrow. I’m not moving there until we get married. We got sooo use to having a normal relationship for a month i hated to see him leave! I wish he’d just get out of the dang navy already!

1. We’ll see each other this weekend…My wedding dress is ready to be picked up and it’s about 30 minutes from him yayyy.

2. My bday is ON labor day and he says he has something planned so i dunno yet πŸ™‚ probably something cute.

3. Fiance hasnt really done anything sweet to ME lately. More so to my daughter. He’s been making such an effort with her and bonding with her sooo much lately it melts my heart! He says he’s making up for lost time πŸ™‚

My fi just got deployed last Wednesday so I’m LDR till he comes back.

1.) October for my birthday πŸ™

2.) A friend’s birthday party two hours away; haven’t seen her in awhile so it will be fun.

3.) Sweetest thing: Finding a way to call me during my wake hours from the base to another base to have his friend transfer to me..even if it was eight am on my day off πŸ˜›

Next visit is mid Sept. For labor day? Not much, probably homework. And something sweet that he has done recently? Given me a back rub when I wasn’t feeling good during our last visit this past weekend >.<. I know that last one doesn’t seem like a lot, but we only see each other once a month, so it means the world to me πŸ™‚

1) not sure. we briefly discussed a thanksgiving trip but he also offered to help me and my mom move but we don’t have a moving date just yet so we’ll see. we did just see each other at the end of june/early july.

2) just hanging out with family and maybe friends. also have some group work to do. my graduate program doesn’t care if its a holiday weekend. boo!

3) he’s been running around like crazy trying to find all the components for my birthday gift [it was early this august]. he feels bad that he hasn’t sent it yet but he wants it to be perfect.

My first check in!  πŸ™‚

Although we did 6 months of long distance when we were first dating, this weekend marks the return to LDR for FH and I.  He finished his PhD and got a job in Vancouver and is on his way out there now.

1.  I’m planning to go out to visit him in BC the 23-28th of Sept, so not too long to go before I can see him.  It will also be the first time I see our new apartment.

2. This has been a crazy moving weekend for me.  I moved back in with my parents and am trying to get settled,  Everything seems to weird.

3.  My FH is a sweetie and is already planning activities for us when I go to visit him.  So far we’re going to go to Stanley Park and the Vancouver aquarium as well as taking a day trip to go apple picking.  I think we’re also going to see Going the Distance while I’m there.

Ah, Fiance and I were just talking about this last night over facebook chat because he has been in training for his upcoming deployment for the past four weeks. We have been dating since August of 2005, married in May of 2010 in that time we will have been separated due to his military schedule/deployments/assignments etc. for approximately 55% of that time and only lived together for 5 months before getting married. He is preparing for his second deployment to Iraq for a very undetermined amount of time. Basically if they can shut it down fast they get out fast, maybe less than 9 months, if it takes them a long time then they could be there for over 15 months.

I just feel like we have been cheated out of our first year of marriage. He will be gone for the vast majority of it and we will not get to have those “first christmas”, “first anniversary”, “first whatever” experiences. :/

1) He comes home on Wednesday!!

2) I will be studying. πŸ™

3) He snuck me a phone call, even though he wasn’t supposed to, because it was my first day back to school in my pursuit of a career change.

@Miss_Riley: I totally feel for you.  I know the feeling of being “cheated out” of your first year of marriage.  I’ve seen my hubby twice in he 9 months we’ve been married.  Before that, I saw him 2 times in the 10 months we were in engaged…and before that, he was deployed.  When i think of the actual time we’ve spent together since we’ve been together, it is so sad and depressing (just because there has hardly been anytie)…but…not much else we can do is there?  The military is definitely a hard cookie to deal with sometimes πŸ™‚
