Dearest Dan,

This is hard! I know you are working and studying, but I miss you. Let’s face it; Jen can only do so much to distract me when I’m not at the restaurant or studying. It’s you I am lonely for. I just keep praying that this is all worth it. Someday, we will be together in the same town.

Thanksgiving is next week. Mom wants us to eat with the family Thursday at two. Does that work with you and your dad? I’m looking forward to his “world famous” turkey. Let me know.

Finished my mid-term exams last week; they were a BEAR! I hate taking exams. So glad the field I’ll be working in doesn’t require a certification exam. Jen met me for dinner. She’s added a new hot yoga class to her yoga choices. Not sure if this one will stick, think it’s more about the guy who leads it, then the form.

Call me if you can this weekend so we finalize holiday plans. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!! I’m trying to be patient.

Love you,

Dearest Dan,

That is so funny ‘cause Jen talked about Mark all the way home. Maybe opposites attract???  I know you’re thinking, “Don’t get involved…”

My roommate came back heartbroken. Evidently she caught him cheating. He didn’t know she was coming home for the holiday. He didn’t answer his phone so she went over there walked in to find he and some chick cuddled on the couch. She said it got ugly from there and after yelling and throwing a few things at him she walked out. He didn’t try to call her, so she’s upset. I tried to be as sympathetic as possible, but the guy’s a LOSER.

So here we are with a holiday past and now I need to focus in on class work. It took me a couple of days after getting back to settle into the semester work. I spent some time making my list and time out the project deadlines to be sure I get everything done.

I love you and miss you so much. Sometimes it’s hard to study because thoughts of you invade. Sounds kinda cheesy, but it’s true. It feels like the three weeks until I see you are so far away. Please call me when you can. I know we have to be careful about the long distance charges, but hearing your voice always helps.

Take care of yourself. Love you,
