First, I apologize for being absent for so long. Life's been a roller coaster and I'm just holding on for the ride. I think things are settling down a bit now, so I'll be back to blogging on a consistent basis. I've been working on my Tinker Bell weekend race recaps as well as recaps of my trip to Italy. :)
Anyway, today marks the beginning of a new phase in life for me, we'll call it "Table For One." I mentioned before that my husband, newly graduated, is starting a job that begins with an 8 month training program in Texas (we live in California). It's not long enough for me to try and transfer with work so I can move with him, especially if we are just going end up back here anyway. So we'll be doing the long-distance marriage thing.
He headed off on his long road trip to Texas this morning. We packed his little car to the brim and off he went. I tried to hold it together, but of course that didn't last long. I know it's only 8 months and we'll see each other inbetween then, but in the moment, it feels like forever. I have a feeling I'll be booking a plane ticket to see him this weekend.
We can hang in there and survive being apart, what with technology being as awesome as it is. And I know I can always pick up the phone and call or text him, which is more than some couples can do, but it still sucks. Our tiny apartment without all his clothes and stuff seems so empty. I'm sure there's an adjustment period; I just hope I get through it quickly.
During this time apart, I'll be focusing on my running (I have another half in April) and other hobbies, like cooking and sewing (I'm planning to make my husband a quilt). It'll be interesting living alone and being completely independent of each other, but I think it'll also make the time spent together that much better.
