24 Hours

It's been 24 hours since I've heard from Joel.  I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I go C-R-A-Z-Y when a day or more passes without a word.... Even a quick email that just said "Hi" would be great.  I'd be pretty satisfied with that.

My brain goes crazy thinking about what he may be doing, where he may be and what could possibly get in the way of him getting to a computer for a minute to drop a line.  I know there's so much there to keep him busy, that there are times that getting to a computer is impossible.  But I still need something.  Anything.

So, I sit here - refreshing my email, just hoping that something pops up from him. 

We're 60 days in.  I'm tired.

UPDATE:  I just got an email from Joel and he's safe and sound.  *big sigh*  I feel so much better.  Getting to sleep last night was rough, but I'm so glad to know he's ok.

I stumbled across your blog somehow when it was linked on another blog I was reading. I just wanted you to know that I understand the loneliness and exhaustion. My husband is with the Iowa National Guard and is at mob station currently, and will be heading over to Afghanistan very soon. We have an 11-month-old daughter and I stay home with her. I know how lonely and tiring and hard it is. I really enjoy your blog. Stay strong and know that I'm praying for you.
