Plans on Plans on Plans

So it's Saturday May 31st.
June is Tomorrow and my last day here is
really really really close.

The constant conversations between Tom and I are
"I love you, I'm gonna miss you"
Followed by sniffles [from me]
then giggles from the both of us because
we know it won't be long before we see each other again.
7ish weeks to be precise.

Yep, Tom is coming over to Texas in early August.
So we are trying to limit the pity parties around here.

We have to remind ourselves that we've had 5 amazing months together,
and that this is really just the beginning for us.

It might feel like fooorreevvverrr when we're not together
but at least we always have plans in place for next time.

Right now our plans for next time are
Tom coming to Texas in August and staying
till the middle of September, with two 
weeks in the Caribbean thrown in the middle.

Our plans for after that are a little fuzzy.
In fact they're non existent at the moment.

I can't go back to the UK till December
and with Tom working he won't be able to come
back over to Texas for a while.

Soooooo....I think the end of the year is going to be spent
saving money for the following year.

We've got a few ideas for what's to come next year.
It would be nice to be able to do this again.
For me to stay over here in England and then Tom comes to Texas afterwards.

But we know we can't keep this up forever.
Going back and forth is expensive, and it's hard to plan.

We really need a program that we can both be involved in
where we can both work and be together at the same time.

And that program is not called marriage...not yet anyways ;)

Working holiday visa's to New Zealand or Australia are still in the running.

We know that one day the hopping all over the world will have to take a break
and we will have to settle down somewhere.

And that will be one exciting day when it comes around.

But for now we'll hop around to see each other
and we'll try to save money along the way.

Long distance relationships are tough but so worth
it when you're with the right person.

I couldn't imagine doing this with anyone else.

P.S. I asked Tom to write a blog post.
Should be up sometime next week.
