Just writing because I need a little support I guess…
My SO is a professionnal drummer.. and he is presently on tour in Europe (we live in Quebec, Canada)… He has been gone for 3 weeks… and will not be back for 2 more… and right now I miss him so much it hurts… Plus I started school again a week before he left so all that has got my emotion level sooooo high… Oh and he had a veryyyy scary plane experience today!! So that made it even harder… I just wish we could hold each other right now…
Please keep us in your prayers 🙂 Thanks !

Any of you bees deal with the musician lifstyle ? 😛 Have you found ways to make the long distance episodes easier ?

Any long distance relationship is hard. You just have to try and keep yourself busy and when your really missing him a quick phone call or nice skype convo always makes me feel better.
I can’t imagine how often you two are apart due to his career but at least its over 1/2 way done now.

We both do (the musician and the merch girl!) it so it’s fine when we’re on separate tours but being at home without him is the pits! We have regular check-ins/skype dates! He’s away now to Europe for a couple weeks right before the wedding (aaaaaaarrrrrrrggggggghhhhhh)! I’ve moved overseas as well, so it gets horribly lonely without him as I have yet to really develop “my own friends” (though the mutual ones are absolutely grand) and the house we have now is isolated and a while out of town.
So I got a cat.

hahah the cat idea could be great ! I just have to see if he’s ok with that.. he’s a little allergic and our apartment isnt that big..
We definately do the Skype thing.. Sometimes it helps and sometimes it makes things worse for me… Kinda makes me miss him even more if that makes any sense..
Thank you ladies for supporting me! I get to see him in 10 days! He leaves again 2 weeks after and he’ll be back for Christmas. I’m so excited about that !
Keep the suggestions coming 🙂

Definitely makes sense. We wind up pawing at the screen! Skype is a blessing though, I don’t want to think about what our phone bills would look like if we didn’t have it! Plus seeing his face and smile lights my own face right up!
Mine was only home about 4 days between tours and it was torture having him back only a few days! At least we managed to squeeze in writing our vows and getting the rings before he was off again! He’ll be home at the end of the month and I’ve got him for our wedding month before he’s off to South America in December! I can’t legally work yet over here so I’m stuck at home and too nervous to risk doing my own tours! But maybe I’ll get him back next year 😛
Luckily we’re both cat lovers so I was just “borrowing” the cat (she used to live in the house we’re caretaking, so she’s right at home) but now we’re planning to keep her!
