Don’t SCARE me like that, lady! It sucks that he’ll be gone for a month, but there’s always Skype and whatnot (and you have us, too). Why not take up knitting or cross-stitch or something to keep busy?

Awww hun…. I will be doing the same thing after I get married.  Fiance will be leaving for Navy basic a few months after our wedding, so I can’t totally relate as a past experience, but I know it will happen someday, so I can in a way. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you go to visit him on weekends and stuff?  I am planning on writing to Fiance every day and taking a picture every day that he’s gone of something that I did that day and give it to him on a CD when he gets home since I can’t visit during basic.  I can visit during his school afterwards, and I am planning on bringing care packages, new lingerie (hehe), and new clothes and stuff like that for him.

When I am home, I am planning on doing a lot of organizing, painting, working out, and entertaining to keep me busy.  My sister is going through her hubby being deployed and she says the time goes quickly if you keep busy and do things you have always wanted to do, like take a spin class or a cake decorating class.

My SO is gone often for work. He works 21 days, and then has 6 off. But of those 21 days, he’s usually only home for a night or two. It really does suck, but I’ve become used to it. The only thing I can’t get used to is nighttime. I have the worst sleep when he’s not here.

My husband is in the Army and went out of state for training only 2 months after we got married and was gone for a month. Then, a month after that, he went to Afghanistan and has been gone 8 months. So I can relate to the absence! Sounds so simple, but keep yourself BUSY and it will go by fast ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you have any children or pets? I found it easy to devote a lot of my time to my dog and put lots of time into school and it helped keep me sane ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!!

Oh sweetie, that’s so tough!  My husband has been in CO off and on for the past 2 months.  And it looks like he might be doing a rotation out there.  It’s a great opportunity for him but it so sucks!

Seriously, you should never post something with that title again! OMFG, my heart literally stopped for a second.  Are you trying to kill me so close to my wedding?!

3 hours isn’t that far.  Can’t you drive to visit him every weekend or can’t he come see you?  My dad lived 13 hours away from my mom for the past year and a half and he still drove home practically every 2 weeks to see her.

@crebre80: Are we twins?  I am having problems at work too.  I really want to leave but I haven’t found anything else yet.
