While I'm loving the extra time devoted to my family, I've gotta say that I really miss Joe. We miss each other terribly.
To help us get through this long stretch of being apart I created a little countdown just for us. I email him a daily "calendar page" with a new number and message every morning and he enthusiastically responds before heading off to work. We recently celebrated getting into the 30's and cannot wait to get to 1! It's silly but we're having fun staying connected even in the smallest of ways.
