July 20th, 2008

Brandon has now been gone for 4 weeks and 1 day! Basically a month. It's been difficult, but it feels easier as time goes on. I suppose you just get used to it! The first couple weeks were the hardest. We've gotten into a routine now though. Ever since he got his laptop, life without him at home has improved! He has a webcam, I have a webcam, we get to "see" each other almost every night. We talk on IM alot, and on the phone as much as possible. Of course, we text ALL the time. The key to being apart is constant communication!

I get to see him in a little over 3 weeks. Since we bought the plane ticket to Seattle, I've just been so excited. We've been planning what we'll be doing! Of course, we have to see the Space Needle and the Pike Place Market. I'm excited about those two! And there's also a cool looking underground tour of Seattle. Definately going to that. And we're also going to Chipotle (lol), because Brandon wants some and there is only one Chipotle in Seattle! Haha.

The weeks pass quickly! I have a routine down. My work schedule changes, but nothing else changes much. Tuesday and Friday are Netflix movie nights. Jessica comes over those nights and watches movies with me. She's been great company during Brandon's absence! Monday nights Jon & Kate Plus 8 has a new episode. I've become addicted to that show. And on Tuesday's is the new show "Secret Life of an American Teenager". I like that show. The acting isn't the best, and it's kinda corny, but I'm hooked...

Otherwise, I play Sims2 alot! I got some new EP's for that and I've been playing like mad. I've had the same family for a year, I'm on generation 14 I think. It's addicting as well. I love my Sims!

Life has been treating me alright. There are some ups and downs, but I take every day as it is.

If you want some advice on really great places to visit in Seattle, as a native. :) Or I can ask him for you.
