Hubby's been traveling every week since July.
Today, on one of our long-distance calls (we call and text each other a few times a day, trying to reduce the distance), he mentioned it would probably be for just 2 more months then he may not need to travel so much then.
Some people can get used to their spouse being away. After a while they establish a kind of routine to keep them busy, and maybe start a new hobby etc. to have some entertainment or excitement.
Well, I think those are very independent women.
I was one... until I fell head-over-heels. Then I was bound, still am bound, in my heart and soul for the rest of my life.
So after all these while it actually has taken a toll. I feel it harder every time he has to go. I feel the distance more, especially when we talk before bed time - exchanging stories of our day.
My boys are not too crazy about talking on the phone, so he has also missed hearing them and they him. Sometimes he leaves when they are still asleep, in the wee hours in the morning. Sometimes he leaves in the evening while they are busy at play and just give him a quick, "bye, dad" without realising they won't see him for the next few days.
Oh, I know time will pass quickly if we count by the weekends...
But it's still a day away.
So near yet so far.
