Thanks Derby! It does help. Karma came home and we talked after I posted that and I'm feeling a bit more at ease.
I think my biggest fear is that my boundries won't be respected. This is big test in our trust issues.
But I think I'll go over my boundries with both him and Cricket and trust that he cares enough to follow through (as he has in the last 6 months) without me here.
I feel bad being upset over 2 weeks when people like you have much longer times apart. But we've never been apart this long, nor with so much going on and having changed in the last 6 months.
I know you're right, I know the time will fly by. I'm probably going to be more upset in the time leading up than in the actual time there.
