@Judg --- oh - I'm sorry you and hubby are having to live apart. That has to be hard. My best friend and her hubby are living apart due to job circumstances also. They have been about 3 hours drive apart. Its been 3 years and they've had enough. They both just signed a 2 year contract with an International School in South Korea and are leaving next month. They are finally going to be in the same house again! Teaching jobs in the states are hard to come by with the economy being so bad.
I hope hubby gets to come home soon! You'll have a great summer I'm sure - and maybe by fall you'll have all the hoops jumped through and will be able to join him!
