Saying Goodbye Again

I'm here at the skatepark watching my husband on the mini ramp. In two days he will be leaving again for New York. It's really hard to just enjoy the time we have together knowing it will be over soon and we will have to go back to long distance again. I don't know how much longer it will be until we can be together for good. I'm so grateful that I have someone who wanted to be with me sobmuch that the distance didn't matter. I'm grateful that we can afford plane tickets to visit each other. I'm grateful that even though my car doesn't work and my husband isn't allowed to stay in my barracks room with me that I have friends who let me use their cars and stay in their home so we don't have to pay for a hotel.
I just have to keep reminding myself that this will be over soon, even if it's not as soon as i want. I have a plan for the future that keeps me going. I decided to go to culinary school with my GI Bill when I get out of the army. It's one of the best and it's close to home in New York.
It's hard when you always thought getting married would mean having a place together and sharing a life together, only to be told you have to wait. It's been more than two years apart!
We've made it this far... The time when we can be together is closer than ever.

Walnut Marshmallow Fudge

It's been a difficult month. It isn't going to get easier either. I'm hoping something will happen soon so my husband and I can live under the same roof for the first time. Even the same time zone would be nice!
Aside from that mess, I had an okay Thanksgiving. I also got to dog sit for my friends doggy, Charlie. He's the sweetest doggy ever!! I'm so excited to get a pet of my own too. It makes waking up and coming home a lot more fun.

One can of sweetened condensed milk, one bag of chocolate chips (dark chocolate), half a bag of walnuts and a handful of marshmallows. Melt the milk and chocolate together in a sauce pan. Add the marshmallows and walnuts right before pouring the mixture into a cake pan lined with parchment paper, Chill and EAT!

Mister Charlie!

Thanksgiving pie.

I made some rolls with spam, avacado and cucumber.

A girls night out at the wine bar.

Espresso to sober up after all that wine!
