I miss my best friend! The love of my life has been gone since new years. Yes my friends it’ll be three months soon since I last saw my handsome, hunk of man meat. Yes I just said “man meat.” I mean have you seen my man? He’s hot! We will be reunited in 10 days eeekk!!!
He’s been gone due to work related training. I am not authorized to give you further details. Being a military spouse I can only say so much people. How do I keep from crying into my pillow every night you ask?
If you are in a long distance relationship, your spouse travels frequently, or you just need new ways to spice up any long distance web you’ll love my suggestions.
*First things first, plan what you’re going to do! I cannot say that enough. If you don’t you won’t do anything, or will waste time trying to decide. Pick a day, time, and activity beforehand. *
1. Online Video Games
Nowadays you can wear a headset to communicate to other players while playing video games. You can connect online to play the same game and communicate with your spouse. It feels like you guys are in the same room. My husband loves to play video games and when I join him it makes the experience sweeter.
2. Grab Food & Watch your Favorite T.V. Show
It’s no secret that the Walking Dead is back on. Love that show! Erik and I missed the premiere episode so we visited Mobilevids.org on our date day. Mobilevids is a site that allows you to watch television episodes for free. Once you get pass all the pop up ads (only when you first log in and when you pause) it’s free sailing. Beforehand we went to Subway together, via phone of course, and ordered our food. Once we received our food we traveled back home, settled in, and began our show. We kept the phone on speaker so we could hear our reactions throughout the episode.
There is a site online called Pogo.com that allows you to play games for free online. Just create a profile and add friends. Erik and I only play card games, but they also have board games like Monopoly and Clue. Again we usually stay on the phone while we play too.
This is a given, but you’ll be surprised at how many people don’t send photos on the regular. It’s important that I see your face! I also send photos of my food, new nail polish colors, places I’m at, basically anything to make him feel like he’s still apart of my everyday activities. I also make videos for him that include activities, i.e. playing with the dog or help me decide which dress I should wear, or simple I love you messages.
5. Send Surprises
Who doesn’t love surprises? Send a gift basket, card, or handwritten letter to them. It doesn’t have to be their birthday or a special day. Just let them know you are thinking of them.
Thank God for technology right? Those are some of the things I like to do that are fun. Erik and I really make it priority to schedule time to spend together while we are apart. Now that we will be moving away from family soon I plan on connecting with them in these ways as well. Do you have any ways you stay connected with family or love ones who live far away?
Thanks for stopping by friends,
