Oh these times are hard,
Yeah, they’re making us crazy,
Don’t give up on me, baby.
Mr. Lemur and I are long distance—and have been on and off throughout our entire relationship. In fact, by the time we get married we’ll have been long distance for almost half of our time as a couple. So yes, I knew it would be hard going into our final four months apart. Unfortunately, my trips up to Detroit are few and far between.
But guys, it’s really tough. When I’m here I get into a pretty good routine. I work eight to give or later every day, eat dinner with my sisters or roommate, go to class for several hours in the evening, run and work out, and by then it’s time to go to sleep and get up the next day to do it all over again. Mr. Lemur works 12-hour shifts with a lot of overtime and runs a good bit himself. We hang out with our friends here or there when we have time. So we stay busy—and that’s good. It works.
