Do you view it as a chance to catch up on some "me" time or do you just feel your heartstrings tearing?
Do you freak out and call them every 5 minutes or do you let them call on their own time because their schedule is special and yours isn't?
EDIT: Not me!!!! :) I just don't get the people who ARE like that. My BF is gone a week and people are giving me SYMPATHY that I just don't understand. I also have a friend who won't visit longer than a day or two because she "can't be away from her husband that long".
