And Then There Was One.

I took Matthew to the airport this morning. He has arrived safely and is getting settled now.

And here I am. Sitting alone in the apartment.

It is strange. Not really setting in.

Thanks to Kelli for supporting me today and keep me company (thus keeping my mind of my alone-ness).

It is going to be alright, I know it is. I'm not going to dwell on how desperately I miss him.

Things I'm going to be doing while he's gone:

1: Applying for Grad school:
-Finish communicating with Professors for recommendations
-Get GRE scores sent
-Get Transcripts sent
-Write personal statement (probably the biggest thing I'm putting off...)
2: Cleaning my room at my parents' house so Matthew and I will have a place to sleep for a while between this place and the next :)
3: Packing the apartment for a December 1st move out day
4: Working out to lose those 5 pounds (yeah... LAME) I've gained....
5: Hanging out with Utah residents
6: Christmas Shopping!
7: Finishing up my time at the GOAL Foundation
8: A bit of travel: a short trip to Virginia, and then a trip to Oklahoma to see the one I'm missing for Thanksgiving!
9: Attempting some new recipes
10: Looking for jobs in the next locale...

And there you have a short list of my fun to do list for the coming weeks.

I miss you already love, can't wait to see you soon. How the crap can I say goodbye to you for seven MONTHS?

I love you, Claire Teter! I'm pretty sure nothing I can say will help. But, I love you.

Hey Claire,

It is good to run into your blog again. Congrats with that GRE, I have done some of those questions and it is a lot of working studying. I hope you enjoy Utah.

Hey doll - if any of your to-do list brings you to Salt Lake, let me know. I would love to do lunch or have you over for dinner. Let me know!

Hello my wife! I miss you too and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Love you
