... except, perhaps for yet as to be scheduled dissertation meetings....
This will mark the end of the second year of our LDR.
I really can't wait for it to be over, for the summer and forever.
Having two households is kind of a pain, but manageable -- it is not seeing one another all the time that I really don't like.
I suppose it is a good thing that I still love and miss my Hubby of 17+ years -- but, I wish that didn't have to be proven on such a regular basis.
We'll more than likely do it again next year (depending on Hubby's uni.. they are slow with the contracts) -- although where is an open question, as Hubby really wants a cat, and that may not be acceptable to the homeowners he's house sitting for. Of course, when they realize that it may not be a good idea to try to sell their house soon -- they may give in. There are lots of houses on the market around here, and one that has been for sale on this street since early October. A few more are listed as 'rent to own' -- and the neighborhood here just isn't all that big. Add to that the fact that they'll need to do quite a bit of work inside and out to be competitive (it is a nice place, for 1987), plus the fact that home prices have fallen a lot this year, and I suspect they'll let him have the cat. But -- it is another waiting game.
Really, the money is almost the same for us -- so he could live here or in his own place... The only advantage to staying here is not having to find a new place and put minimal furnishings in it....
So, tomorrow I'll do another Corn State drive. The weather is supposed to be decent, so it should be ok ----
