not fond of absence
Communicate when you can, even if it's only a brief text or email. That meant a lot to me when I had to travel for work. I know some guys live like worldly bachelors without accountability, but it helps a red-blooded man to stay on the straight and narrow with these messages to bolster his fidelity.
Exercise. Sheesh, especially if you feel blue! Release those endorphins! You'll feel a lot better if you do.
Take advantage of that time to build special memories with your children, siblings or parents. Do something special with them. Give them a little extra attention.
Plan or do something special for your spouse. When he gets back, he's not going to have to worry about doing this chore, or we might eat at a favorite restaurant to celebrate his return. That will give you both something special to look forward to. I think it's best that if you want to plan something, don't keep it a surprise. You don't want to end up with conflicting schedules, right?
Well, that's all I've got. What do you think? What have you done and/or how would you cope?
