Seeing Someone in the Military
I don’t talk about Tim and I’s relationship much on my blog. In fact I don’t talk about Tim all that much on my blog. You can probably guess because I’m still living happily in NJ, we are 100% happy together. (I really tried to make that sound as least awkward as possible).
Anyways last Friday I got a text that said “because of the winter storm we are flying out to California for the week to train”.
So you mean to tell me because it’s snowing on the East Coast, you get to go to California and train in the gorgeous weather?
UGH. Hard doesn’t even begin to explain it. With one single text message I found myself alone for the week. I was happy for him because he has worked long hours and at least he would get to work long hours in the sun. (But yes I was a little jealous…take me to California).
I think I’ve mentioned but incase I have not Tim is in the Air Force and flies.
So this week at the bat of an eye his job took him to California. Other times it will be internationally. He had one day notice to prepare (work related) and then one day off (Saturday) to hang out with me. I was lucky that we got to relax, go for a run and just hang out before he left. I know that won’t be the case other times.
Our relationship is tough at times when these types of things happen but I would never trade it for the world. We are so happy together and going through these quick changes (and moving 1 million times) just makes the best times even better.
I couldn’t be more proud of him though because of how flexible he has to be and how hard he works. This week honestly wasn’t terribly hard. After doing a distance relationship for a year in Oswego I find myself missing him after a day. I guess that is what living with a significant other does to you…
I’m not complaining at all. I am noting that this has been a hard week for me. I’ve always been happy in my relationship with Tim and these harder times just make the easier times even better.
