Real Life: Sometimes even I lack finding something positive in a bad news!  
I'm a fixer, you come to me with a bad news or a problem, the only thing I can do is thinking about a solution or the positive thing in it... I do it with my family, my friend and myself... That's why people think I'm stronger than I actually am.

Eric had been gone on a work-trip for almost a month now, and we were hoping he was coming back home on Monday (tomorrow) but, last night, there was a change of plans, and it looks like he'll be back by the end of September... One more month... And I'll be in the US from the 14th of September, where he's going to join me in October. By the I would have been away from my husband for more than 2 months. It never happened to us... It's terrible...

Plus we can't have a phone conversation because, when they're working, the ETO limits their access to the Internet and at sea they don't have cellular reception.

The news hit me pretty hard. I'm not going to lie... I'm staying strong because if it's hard from me that I'm home with family and friends, I can only imagine how hard is for him, that is working surrounded by not-so-happy people...

This year has been hard with the yacht having a very weird schedule and we have to suck it up... It's going to be hard for a while... So basically until I'll get my citizenship and I will have more room for my movements in and out of the States.

I'm trying to find the bright side, but I can't... Eric and I are use to spend every moment of our day together, we were working together, sharing a tiny cabin, spend our time off together... And now we're forced to stay separate...

It just sucks and I wish I was more okay with the uncertainty of our lives...

6 years? OMG how do you do it? Do you live in different cities or in different countries? I hate when we're in different continent and the time difference is too crazy...

Yes I feel exactly that way... like the Earth crumbled beneath my feet. I still have hope that something might change and I might be able to see him... At least he said he can call tonight. He talked with the ETO and he's going to leave him a window...

Funny you mentioned food because the first thing I did was reaching for the Nutella xD

See? One spoon (or half the jar, it depends) and you're good to go :D

Different cities. I don't know how we do it...we just do it, partly because it's 2016 and such things as cell phones, video calls and instant messaging exist.. I don't know how they did it 20 years ago!
The time difference must really be a killer though.
Bf and I live 400 km apart but at least the time zone is the same xD

Yes, I can't even think about how difficult would be to not be able to at least text...

I really hope you guys are able still to see each other often and maybe one day to just get rid of the distance!!!

Anyway... There are people that have to deal with being married to someone who's in the Army... That's must be the worst long distance relationship ever!
