When you’ve been in a long distance relationship for as long as my husband and I prior to our marriage, (I am pretty sure there are very few of you, and some of you who are reading this are shaking your heads saying – Long Distance Relationships are a bad idea), you are going to understand what I went through going to Fargo last Monday.
You see for the longest time ever whenever we would go on the highway I would think we were going to the airport. For about two months I kept on thinking that I should be leaving on a Sunday! I even had the urge to pack. Old habits die hard, so eventually, after being married for 4 months, I am finally starting to break the pattern. I even agreed with one of the characters on “How I met Your Mother” when he said that long distance relationships aren’t a good idea. And even though ours worked out, it was difficult.
So last week when my friend Kara asked me to go to Fargo with her, and I said yes, I had this anxiety overwhelm me, and the only question in my head was – What is Sam gonna do? Now you all know my husband is not helpless, he survived college on pop-tarts and pizza, but I was still worried. So the night before I made him a big pot of Sloppy Joes, packed him a lunch for Monday… Oh yeah and did I tell you I was coming back Tuesday?
In the end it all went well, I was busy helping Kara look at apartments, went shopping for Christmas presents, and ate so much pizza and cactus bread at Pizza Ranch, that I want to go back there and have more
I did miss Sam and he missed me, and it was a good experience for both of us. I realized that I can be away from him for a
few couple days, and he could be on his own, but we both realized that we do like being around each other more than being apart!
I really hope I am not the only one out there who has this disorder! Let me know how you fight yours
PS. I am seriously excited to celebrate Christmas with him this year, it’ll be our first year as husband and wife! YAY!
