Zach's last day here in VA was Friday, he left on Saturday morning. Which means today marks the end of the first 24 hours. It took nearly everything I had not to break down at work through the past week. Friday was the worst, but I got through it in part to reading this post about Long Distance Relationships (or LDRs).
I hope to document how things go for us on our journey through an LDR & hopefully find some fun Long Distance dates to go on. We especially need to Skype & watch Stargate on Netflix since our after work activities generally consist of that.
We got together with a few of his friends for a Mongolian BBQ going away party. I had a yummy drink & we sat for 3 hours talking. And by we I mean that I had no idea what computer jargon they were spouting out & flipped through instagram.
I think one of the hardest parts I'll face when I decide when I am going to move to meet him is going to be making friends. I always get nervous that I'll never be able to make friends. When I was in college I thought the same thing & came out with some great friends. I do know that I may be able to meet up with some up north blog friends (Kristin, I'm talking about you!). I don't know what opportunities I'll have to make friends, I am really a home body type of person. But if Zach has friends he's hanging out with, I'd like to have some too ya know.
About mid stage in packing. Man I thought we'd never get done. I hate packing & moving so I tried my hardest not to whine and complain. I did whine a bit on Wednesday but Thursday I just moved whatever needed to be moved.
I took this photo while he was going over to turn in his keys. I took the key off my key ring and gave it to him as he begging me not to cry. He's begged me not to be sad this whole time & I just can't help it!
So now its the waiting game & I don't know what to do. I've spent this weekend with my grandma & aunts. We went to the Cheesecake Factory & had a yummy dinner and dessert. Spent the night talking about pottery & watching NCIS.
I hope your weekend was a pleasant one! What did you do?
