**I forgot to post this when I typed it last month, so although it posts in January it actually was written right after Thanksgiving.
Last night was our last together for the month of December. His wife is on furlough. She was actually off yesterday, but went to her father’s for the day and night.
It was difficult spending time with him, knowing I’ll not see him for the remainder of the month. Knowing he’ll be spending the holiday with his wife and family.
But it’s the nature of this thing we try to call a relationship. I’m becoming more used to it with each break. Sadly.
