Just Making it up

Day twenty-nine: we’ve made it this far

My dearest husband,

I can’t believe it has been 29 days since I last was with you. I leave here in one month and cannot wait to see you and throw my arms around you. I may never let you go and I for sure will never be spending this amount of time apart from you again as long as we live.

I will say this time apart has allowed me the space to really think about us and despite how fast everything…

Day twenty-six and twenty seven: (probably twenty-eight as well)

My dearest husband,

I am so excited to get to talk to you this morning. I’ve had a rough couple of days which is really why I haven’t written anything. I haven’t been sleeping and keep waking up at 2am or 3am and then just start crying. I wish I could roll over and have you hold me at night when I get sad and feel alone. I just have never felt this alone in my life. I am surrounded by so many…

hey guys - i’m doing better - thank you for the notes - just had a very rough night. it happens from time to time right now (i’m kind of an emotional mess these days) and i know i will be with him soon. i am just a bit overwhelmed with everything I have to do and the not having a reliable form of communication is very difficult for the both of us.

the good news is i managed to get a hold of him today and we scheduled a time for him to call me tomorrow morning via skype or facetime from an internet cafe - it will be so nice to see him!


I feel at times all messages to him land into a void of nothingness. I don’t know if he gets them, or not. Phoning is unreliable at best and the French voicemail lady is not who I want to hear.
I wish I could just talk to him. I wish picking up the phone to call would always get an answer. I wish I knew how or when we’d speak. I wish I didn’t lay in bed at 3am just crying. I wish I didn’t feel so alone right now.


you guys! i am so happy i sold one of my bikes for exactly what i wanted to sell it for and i sold my dresser last night too. i also found someone to adopt my cat - one of my good friends who is going to be the perfect person for her.

slowly, very slowly, i am getting it all done.


Day twenty-five: getting my organization on

My dearest husband

I am glad that I had the chance to speak to you today. I wish we didn’t have to have such short conversations though. I hope we can schedule a time to talk longer this weekend.

You’d be happy, I am getting everything all organized and just sold the dresser this evening. I am working hard to get everything sorted all out and  organized. I am almost finished typing up a listing…

as my weeks in Seattle are winding down, it is making me get a bit sentimental about the friendships I have made over the last decade here. I just didn’t have it in me to organize a going away party, so four of my friends got together and insisted on doing it themselves. They found a location and sent the invite and everything all i have to do is show up.

friends like that are hard to come by and they will be missed. I hope that they can make it to Morocco for a visit.


Day twenty-four: technology is getting the best of me

My dearest husband,

We are about a full month into this you being gone thing and I am about one month from flying there myself. I don’t really have to much to say, but today the technology frustration got the best of me. I did find out that I can text you, but I don’t know if you will get it or not.

On a more upbeat note, I had my last and final review at work. Our reviews are a series of…

ok onto something not technology related for a bit.

I just made what was probably the best salad ever! 

blueberries, green peppers, red cabbage, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, basil and this amazing chive cheese from the farmers market that my friend left her on sunday and just squeezed half a lemon over it all. 

so so so good!!! it was also very pretty, but you don’t get a picture as i ate it all too fast.
