    16 Hours!! :(

    The sun is just peering over the mountains. The birds are singing and the squirrels bouncing to the new day. I look at my clock. It reads 7:00 AM. But for my love the sun has set four hours ago. It's 11:00 PM and she's in her pajamas getting ready to retire for the night. We live...

    7 Hours

    7 hours. It might not seem like much, but to mean it is the longest time in the world. Meaning that we are apart, that we aren't together. I know things could be a lot worse, but right now it feels like hell trying to deal with those 7 hours difference.
