Going Home

Sorry for the lack of entry yesterday, I was pretty busy packing and doing the last-minute things so that I could leave to go home this morning. After 26 days away from HB and the dogs, I get to go back, and I am so excited. As a result, you should not expect another post until Monday. I need a full two days to catch up with my husband.

In additional good news, HB told me that the cable was installed today -- an entire week before our appointment. I can hardly believe it.

More importantly, though, I want to thank everyone who made my visit to the US so pleasant, and kept me from missing my family too much. My parents were wonderful to let me stay with them in Denver for an undefined period of time, and all of the friends and family member that I got to see while in Denver made me feel so welcome and loved. I'm so lucky to have so many people who care about me. I had a great few days in LA, and a very relaxing, slightly geeky time in Tucson. I participated in Halloween for the first time in two years, and got to prove how lame I am by heading home from a party at 9:00.

Finally, in celebration of my return to the BVIs, I'm offering a giveaway of a $25 gift card. To enter the giveaway, answer the following question in the comments:

What is the longest you've been away from your spouse/significant other/child? 

These 26 days have been comparatively short. While I was in law school, HB and I were away from each other for 63 days straight. The span between Christmas break and Spring break is pretty rough.

  1. I was away from my family from June 30, 1970 to July 3 1971. 368 days. Dies that count?

  2. I was apart from my hubby the whole first year that we were married due to the war in Iraq! I am grateful for what he did, but it was the longest and most scariest year of my life. It was actually a little longer than a year! It's not easy being away from those we love the most but it makes our relationships stronger! Glad you made it home safe to your hubby...hope to see you guys soon!
