Today is J’s birthday and I so wish I could be there with him. J and I have been separated a few times during our relationship and I thought it’s not going to be a big deal to do it one more time, but it is. Especially on days like this. Also, getting married and then being forced to be separated for MONTHS (!) is cruel. I thought it’s just going to be like all the other times, but we really were betrayed of the first feelings newlyweds have when they start sharing their lives [and apartment] as a married couple. Sure, we will have that when I get there… but it will have been put off for 11 months!
The good news is, I have booked a flight. Unless the Consulate comes up with an absurd reason to not issue my GC, I will be in CA with J in exactly 5 weeks.
Wow, 5 weeks… this almost scares me now ;) Being in Germany again for almost a whole year, I have almost gotten used to it again. It feels like there is so much left to do for me, although I have been anticipating to finally have a date for such a long time. However, it’s going to be hard to leave my family and friends again. Now that Kim will finally be reunited with C, it would have been so nice to meet him. This is really bad timing, because they’ll be coming back here around the same time I’ll be going over there. It’s almost a funny coincidence that for both of us the LDR crap will be over at around the same time… but YAY for ending LDR’s! [And we’ll see each other in Long Beach next year, Kim!]
