The Wait Just Got Longer :(

I just got bad news. Today I found out the wait for him to come home has gone from 8 months to 10 months.

I was so happy, he was to be coming home in 7 weeks from today but now I get to add 2 more months to that. :( His tech school is very long. Turns out, since he got his orders last year, they've added an extra training class that is separate from tech school that he has to take, the class doesn't start till a month after he graduates, and is a month long. Sighhhh....

I'm so bummed. It's too expensive to go visit him again.

This whole experience with long distance has been harder than him and I ever thought it would be before he left. Sometimes I really don't know if I'm strong enough to do this. I hate how alone I am all the time. All I do is work. And then I call my friends to hang out but they are too busy - getting married and hanging out with their boyfriends most of the time. :( And my family doesn't understand the situation or they don't take it seriously because there is so much distance between him and I.

Sorry...I'm having a pity party for myself right now. I just want to get this out here and not vent it to him.

hey hun. i just wanted to say hang in there.. we all have our rough days.. (i had a meltdown last weekend.. thnk goodness for my boyfriend being there to talk me through it..) but anyway- you have come SO far. dont let the distance get to you now.. i completely get what you are saying. my boyfriend graduates in sept. and i prob wont get to see him till he comes home cause it is super expensive and i am a college student.. it doesnt add up very well.. but even if its hard, somehow they make it worth it.. =)

its a very lonely process. i was just talking to my friend earlier about the fact none of my friends or family seem to get it. while my world stopped... their life was normal. its the exact reason i joined this site because its made the process a little easier. i know youre disappointed, i would be as well. if you can stick it out...... it will be worth it! hang in there girl.
