long-distance is dumb and i hate its guts. ALL of its guts.

Fiance and I don't like being separated. But guess what we've done a lot of during our relationship? Yep. Be separated.

We did the whole long-distance thing over the summer, which was lame (because, holy crap, four months is a LONG time to not be with someone you love)!

Anyway, the last two weeks have been really long and uneventful because Fiance went to live with his mom and dad while he gets better from his mono (yes, it was that bad). But I still have a job and classes and an apartment and life here... so we've been separated yet again. Only for two weeks (but take it from me, when your fiance is sick and has to spend a night in the hospital hundreds of miles away from you and you can't be there to hold his hand or anything, it gets really rough), but we've made it. We're old pros at this long-distance thing. We've got the whole talking-on-the-phone-every-night-for-two-hours-(or-sometimes-four) system DOWN!

But I don't think I've ever in a million years been more excited for Thanksgiving than I am right now.

I get to see Fiance again in TWO DAYS!

I just love that boy. :)


  1. I totally understand that! Being a military wife means being without my husband for months at a time. In fact, he has been gone for almost half our marriage. It's rough, but it is always worth it!

  2. Oh, that is sad. I am sorry!

    Stopping by from I love my post. Love for you to stop by and return the follow when you can.

  3. Husband and I were long distance for most of the four months before we got married. (It's weird, I know.) But...yeah, it's no fun. Skype was seriously the best thing ever. And I totally understand the excitement over seeing them again! It's just the best.

  4. oh no! :( hope he gets better really soon.

  5. We did long-distance for a year. It really sucked. Then again when we were engaged...we were also pros at talking on the phone for hours. And guess what? We still are! Even though we are married and see each other every day. Basically it is an awesome skill! But enjoy Thanksgiving! Nothing quite like actually seeing each other :-)

  6. Long distance is the worst, but I actually do feel like it has made my relationship stronger. My fiancee and I are in our third year of long distance and it is the last one! So glad you get to see yours this weekend. Enjoy your time together!

  7. Oh no! Long distance is the worst, I'm glad you get to spend the holiday together.
