Just a simple update. Aussie made it safely back to his apartment there.
Though neither of us are in super high spirits… we know we’ll make it through this. Right now, we just need to keep on with life separated, and the process to get him here for good.
In retrospect, we should have started the process sooner. Yet originally we’d held out hope that he’d win the Visa Lottery program, and we could wait to get married after living together for a year or so.
Instead, we are moving the wedding closer. But I know we’ll be absolutely alright anyway.
We just… need to get through all this. We managed almost a year apart this last time, and it’ll be far less this time around.
It just takes a bit to bounce back to being in ‘single mom’ mode after having someone here for three weeks.
Who am I kidding? It also takes a lot to get used to the lack of him here. The lack of his presence is felt all over the house.
We all miss you so bad Aussie. May the governmental red-tape be cut through soon, so we never have to face this in such an ‘we don’t know when we’ll reunite’ manner again!
