I have not been able to read LJ or post much. I am beyond swamped. quicksilver1 leaves Thursday night. He will be in San Diego for 3 months before they ship him off for his 3rd tour of duty in Iraq (although his last tour was actually in Kuwait). I am, of course, wondering how I'm going to get by without him. It's likely I will start asking my friends to visit often. I'm pretty freaked out about the prospect of living alone for a year. I feel helpless here when I'm alone. My home will also be open to friends that need a place to crash due to emergencies or unexpected crises or just because they don't want to drive home after a night of clubbing. And I will most likely look at the possibility of adopting a cat in January, so I won't be totally alone here.
