My man is on his way to Africa now. He'll be in Italy sometime later today and yes I am jealous about that. I would love to be in Rome with him, how romantic would that be. But we'll have to plan to do that another time in the future. I am actually handling his leaving better than I did the last time. I was a wreck the last time he left. But today I am ok with it, sort of.

I am going to miss the hell out of him and will think of him almost every minute of the day. But I have more going on this time than I did the last time. Before I just woke up, went to work and sat at my desk all day, then came home and was surrounded by the lonliness. This time while he is gone, I have a new job on the seas that I love and will pass the time away. Plus, I have gone back to working out and have my martial arts classes and I have a couple things planned with some friends in Dublin. Plus I will get to go to Africa this time and visit my man for a weekend. We are in the process of getting everything with that set up. And this time we have a global calling plan and he'll have some access to hook his laptop up and we can chat online sometimes. So it won't be a total cutoff from him like it was the last time.

So I am doing much better than the last time. Although I did do my best Katherine Hepburn impression when I backed him up against the door as we were leaving and blocked his hand from the doorknob and asked him not to go. Even though it didn't work, I did get a really nice passionate kiss from him. I'm really going to miss kissing him, the way he smells, the smile on his face....oh who am I kidding, this sucks. I miss him already.

Cousin, come visit me some weekend and we can hang out and help you pass the time. I'm thinking of you.

I don't know you, but reading your blog entries makes me laugh and cry. I look forward to each new posting. You have a big heart and that allows you to not only see the beauty in this world, but also the pain. As your friends always post, I could just hug you.

As Bogie would say, here's looking at you kid. I hope that between your good friends and online friends we can keep you smiling or at least help you through the rough spots. Thinking of you both.
