(He's) Leaving on a Jetplane

Sigh. I found out yesterday that the boy will be leaving soon for 6 months of training. Bummer. We expected training to be in February, not September. Also, we expected it to be local and not across the country. It looks like most of fall, as well as all of winter and spring will be spent alone. I'm taking my time with this one, trying not to freak out. This isn't the first time we've spent apart but it still hurts.

For now I'm trying to take it day by day and find some time for us to be alone before he leaves. With a crazy and often unpredictable work schedule this is no easy task.

Aw, im sorry! 6 months is a long time...but keep yourself busy with lots of projects and activities and the time will fly by :)

Thanks for the advice Linds! Yup, 6 months is a long time. I completely agree that projects should help. I'm compiling quite a list :)
