Missing

The boy is in India. Again. We're just over half way through his 5 week stint now. I know I shouldn't complain. After all it is only 5 weeks. And we can skype and Google chat almost every day. I know in that way we're lucky, some people have to deal with much worse - like people with loved ones in the Army, but lets be honest, it pretty much sucks.


Yes, true, the plus side of it is that I can eat pop tarts for breakfast, lunch and dinner {but that wouldn't be the action of a sane person would it?} and leave my sewing machine out for days, and watch chick flicks on Anytime whenever I want - but I miss him. A lot. 
Especially in the middle of the night when I wake up {I don't sleep well alone},  And I think a little more this time than usual because I have been home all day for the last few weeks too.  


But I have been trying to be proactive with this time alone - I am painting the hallway {seriously, the painting of this house never stops} I am planning the launch of an etsy shop, I am designing invites for friends, I am teaching my body to run again and I am learning to enjoy the time alone. 


*Things I wish he was here for - my second interview, valentines, my nanna's funeral last week, starting my new job next week & helping me figure out how to paint the hallway ceiling!

  1. Aww... it must be hard but you're over half way so yay!

    I always find having a lot of alone time hard but therapeutic at the same time. When I am alone I spend it crafting, watching cheesy films and planning. Excited to see the launch of your Etsy shop and we shall have to arrange that drink whilst you have lots of time on your hands! x

  2. I feel for you my love. I always remember missing and needing my guy most for the little things, like having someone to fall asleep next to, or to just give you that hug when you need one. Just focus on the things you can achieve while he's away and he'll be back before you know. I know that's easier said then done but you're strong!

  3. first of all, i'm so sorry that you had to go to your nana's funeral last week. :( sending lots of love to you!

    second of all, being away from the person you love can totally, totally suck. my boyfriend and i live four hours apart and when we first started dating, having him here on the weekends was like a bonus -- i got to live my normal, everyday, awesome life and then have an even awesomer end of the week, but now when he's not here i miss him like crazy (even moreso this week because we were supposed to see each other and then he got sick and we couldn't).

    anyway, all that to say that i am sending you a big virtual hug! xoxo

  4. Gemma - When he 1st goes I go mental with the crafting but it does drag on a bit. And defo - lets sort something out on wednesday! x

    Rachael - it must have been so hard for you, I bet you had to go for much longer than 5 weeks, but you're right - he'll be back in no time. Thank you. x

    Megan - Wow. 4 hrs. I didn't realise. Now that's a journey! I hope the end destination is even more beautiful than Sarasota! (We did an hr away for 2 years, and i did enjoy my weeks to do what i wanted but it got to the point where i just missed him loads too! x

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your Nanna.

    It really sucks that the boy is so far away, especially with all that's been going on for you. I dated D for two years while he was in the Caribbean and I based in Oregon - missing him was painful and I thought the quote you posted was a perfect description.

    Congratulations on the new job; how exciting for you!

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about your Nanna, Em.

    It really sucks that the boy is so far away, especially with all that going on. I dated D for two years while he was in the Caribbean and I based in Oregon - missing him was very painful at times and I thought the quote you posted was a perfect description.

    Congratulations on the new job though; how exciting for you!
