Lonely, Mr. Lonely

The last two days have been a whirlwind. Dan didn't get home yesterday until 10:30pm and then got called to go back in as soon as we went to sleep around midnight. Poor guy. So, he got home around 4:30 this morning only to have to turn around and go back at 7am. This poor man didn't return home until almost 1pm after that. I have been such a wreck because of it. I am not trying to be self-pitying, because honestly he's the one we should all feel sorry for, but I hate not knowing where he is and when he'll be home. I worry about him a lot... it's a problem. Needless to say, poor Dan is exhausted and took a monster nap this afternoon. He is currently back at the Vet school doing...something... but hopefully he will come back soon.

On top of that, I am leaving tomorrow to go on a church sites road trip with my parents! Yay! It is going to be so much fun, I just wish Dan could come. He has barely been able to see me all week, is completely exhausted, and now his wife is leaving him for a week. I wish there was something I could do to help him. I am constantly feeling so useless and helpless because he is going through all of this and there's nothing I can do. Any suggestions? Sorry about this post, but I just needed to rant a little because I am crazy concerned for my dear Hubby.


  1. ...leave little notes for him to find around the house...leave him an envelope for every day you will be gone with a well-wish, a loving memory, a silly rhyme, etc...call him and let him talk you to sleep, or, talk him to sleep...mail him a post card...text him silly or significant pictures...leave him a jar or cup with little notes of what you love about him so he can pick one out and read it if he is down...let him know in your own little ways that you love him, are concerned for him, and want to do all you can to help him through the hard times...have faith in love...

  2. dearest brit,

    pray for him. hide notes in his pants pockets for him to find throughout the day. text him randomly just to tell him you love him. rub his back when he gets home. reassure him again & again that he can do this & then try not to worry too much. things will get better & it will pay off for both of you. have faith in each other...he can handle hard situations & so can you. it is amazing what you can accomplish & get through together as a team. i have been able to get through some things while i've been married that i would have NEVER been able to get through alone. ask him to give you a blessings whenever you feel like you need one, it will help both of you. have faith...it will get better.

    love you.

  3. Be sure to keep going to the temple. Try to make him laugh when he's home-if he and you have that much to worry about, laughter breaks do a world of good. And if you're ever mad about things toward him (not that you ever are, since you two are a perfect couple and all) try not to overload on him as soon as he gets home. Maybe that's obvious but when I'm stressed sometimes I forget that one.

    Be happy! Only one more year and you two are no longer a student couple! :)
