It's almost 3 am and I can't sleep. The closer it gets to Rafe being here, the harder time I have sleeping. Every day he emails me and gives me the countdown and then follows it up with a phone call to give it to me again. I'm trying not to think about it too much; it will make the time drag and accelerate at the same time. We've lived apart for so long, not just this deployment but training and deployments both that it will be a lot like having someone new living with me. We've both gotten more used to living apart than living together.... that doesn't mean we like this state better or that it's easier.
I need to get some sleep somehow. Amelia will be up in 3 hours and I have a busy day.
