When he’s gone: my top 7 survival list (#6)

As the wife of a recently-minted doctor, I have already experienced long absences from my dearest.
I hear there are many more to come.

So what’s a wife to do?

Here I am compiling my top 7 survival list of what to do when he’s gone.

Survival Tip #6:
Chase him

That’s right.

If at all possible, get in your car, or on a plane, or (I guess) if you are really desperate you could strap on your running shoes….and follow him.

One of the best things I did during the months that the dear Dr. was gone was to take a weekend & visit him.
If he’s somewhere you can stay with him for free, all the better. But if not, “splurge” on a cheap hotel. It makes all the difference in the world to your marriage if you take some time to visit.

Now, I realize this isn’t always possible for a myriad of reasons.
But…if you can rearrange your life at all, I challenge you to try to find some time to go see him.

You will both be glad you did.

Enjoy the journey!
