I'm away from home, friends and family for 6 months.
I had a lonely moment this evening.
For the most part I've been used to entertaining myself - tv, internet, reading. Sometimes walking or jogging. So I can probably handle this. I've never really been much of a social butterfly anyway.
But tonight it really hit me. I miss my best friend.
When he was deployed our schedules meshed. We had almost daily chats online. And sometimes we could watch a sports program at the same time (NASCAR) since it was being broadcast live (and the Olympics). This time it's different. I'm working days, that is when he is sleeping. When I get off work he's already gone into work. He had 8 hr days, I have 12+. Maybe next month we'll be able to connect more (if he goes on swing shift).
I need chocolate.
