Day 252

Reenactment (summation, not the literal conversation)--

Me: "It feels like you're half the world away!"
Him: "I am half the world away."
Me: "I know, but why does it have to feel like it?"
Him: "..."
Me: "Oh. Because you are. And nothing we can do will change that." :(

When you miss someone you want to find ways to make the distance between you dissipate, but no matter how much you talk it still doesn't change the fact that the distance is still there. So, you do what you can to keep communicating--and you must be thankful for that--and you keep busy in the mean time.
In that spirit. I am going to work on my homework now...

Day 245

The last two weeks have brought an incredible spread of emotions.

I have found myself at a loss for words to express my thoughts and emotions; this is not something I’m used to.
Someone posted this and I don’t know who is to be credited for these wonderful words, but here they are:
‎"Missing someone isn't about how long it has been since you've seen them or the amount of time since you've talked. It's about that very moment when you're doing something and you're wishing they were right there with you."
I’ve had a lot of those moments in the last two weeks. My heart hurts.
Thankfully, Skype has been working well the last couple times we have been able to talk to Mr. B. Little Mister spent a good amount of time chatting with his daddy last night. They showed each other their stuffed animals that they got from each other and it made me tear up. The three of us spent a few minutes making funny faces and Little Mister decided to show us he could twist his tongue both ways so Mr. B and I decided to try until I ended up with a cramp in my tongue because it didn’t want to turn the way I was trying to make it. It hurt SO bad, but was so funny.
Speaking of last night. Little Mister & I stayed in a hotel so we could attend the annual balloon festival in town so being able to Skype last night made it feel like Mr. B was there with us.
This year they added some new balloons to the festival. I told Little Mister that there would be a very special new balloon, but that it would be a surprise and he would know it when he saw it. He did. I included a picture of him as he saw the balloon, and a photo of the very special balloon.
