I've been away from my husband for a month and I am STRUGGLING. We've been together for almost 11 years, married for 8. And this is the first time we've had to be away from each other for an extended period of time.

Of course we can face time, text, and talk on the phone to keep in touch. But it's not the same at all. For one, he's got our kiddos with him, so all our face time chats are interrupted. And because he's a single parent right now, most of his time is spent tending to them and we discuss a lot about the kids. Hardly a sexy situation.

Besides missing physical intimacy with him, it's the little things I miss most. He always fills my water bottle when it's empty, I don't even ask. He just takes care of it and now I have to do it. Every time I refill it I am reminded that my Timmy Timmy Tumbo Sex Pot Love Kitten isn't with me. I miss seeing his chest hair in the shower. I miss him coming home from the gas station with snacks even when I tell him I don't want any 'cause he knows my chunky self always wants snacks.

A long distance relationship is just not for me. Thankfully it won't be much longer until we're together. But I am looking into getting a body pillow printed with his likeness. It's not weird!...
