Day 3 of 149

Day 3 of 149 - Yesterday blew. I don't know if it was a combination of me being tired or what, but we were down right mean to each other. We both got a crappy night of sleep, and now, it has blown over. It wasn't pretty, but we'll leave it at that.

Other than that, I'm just starting to work on packing. I have picked up some boxes from a friend of mine that manages a Panera and here at my own warehouse. I figure I should start the purge and pack soon. Four months really isn't that long of a time when you work and go to school full time. I am going to the Y after work to swim and destress. I do have a bit of homework, but I'm hoping to be in bed by 9pm.

Day 2 of 149

Day 2 of 149 - A friend of mine told me that I was crazy for already counting, but it makes it easier on me to control the whining and know that I have to be in Texas with a house pretty much set up before we actually make it to day 149. I was looking at how long it would be for other times I will actually get to see him.

On day 40 of 149, I will leave Chicagoland to drive him the car and fly back. Oh, since I am, if any other significant others on the way wants to ride down with me, I'm okay with splitting hotels and gas money. :) I'm just going to fly back.

On day 88 of 149, he graduates, and I wouldn't miss that for the world.

On day 122 of 149, I will fly down to spend Thanksgiving weekend with him.

On day 131, I will probably be driving down to Uvalde for good. :)

When I break it down like that, I realize how little time I actually have. It makes it a little easier to know that I won't have to wait 5 months to actually see him again.

Day 1 of 149

I'm bored, and this will help me. We have 88 days until he graduates the Academy, and we have 149 days until he graduates the Spanish Immersion program. So, I thought I would share my daily thoughts. Feel free to chime in with advice or opinions. Though, I'm stubborn and can be known to beat a dead horse.

Day 1 of 149 - I didn't sleep last night. Well, I take that back, I did get about 15 minutes of sleep, but I don't think that should count. I took the BF to the airport with his Mom at 4am. We did get gate passes and no charge for his baggage with his EOD letter. That was a nice bonus. I'll admit I was a bit snippy with him. I don't think it was on purpose, but there it was. After I watched his plane pull away, we drove back to her house to sleep (which I got an hour of). I finished loading my car with my crap and drove back home from Ohio to Indiana. (I live 4 hours away.) I'm really sad. I haven't gotten to speak to him much today, and I thought I would. I know I need to be strong. That's not the point of this. I'm just being honest. I miss him.
