How do you deal with someone going away?

My wife is taking a road trip to Arizona (from New Jersey) with her sister in July – she’ll then spend a month there before I fly out there to stay a few days and then drive back with her – I’m looking forward to spending quality time driving back while discovering America, but am dreading the month away.

Over our 17 years of marriage my wife have been a part from each other probably four or five weeks – the longest time we spent away from each other was about one week. Before that I lived in Wales and met her on the web – we talked for about a year and then met – we spent half a year apart while I resolved everything I had to resolve in Wales and then moved to America – it was the longest half year of our lives.

I’m dreading that the month apart will bring back the memories of those dreadfully lonely days where we longed to be together….

My husband was out of town visiting his father for two weeks and I missed him a lot. It was the first time I'd been alone in our home. I did try to make the best of it and do some things I might not be able to do if he was home.. I got to have complete control over the TV and watch what I wanted. I also got to cook some foods I like that he hates. I say just keep busy and do some things for yourself. He and I talked every day on the phone and that also helped.

That is sound advice! You mean I get to use the controller for the TV? Is there an instruction booklet for it? emoticon :smile:
