Down the Frozen Lakes

I know my Sweetie isn't very impressed when I spend long hours in the lakes and ponds of Maine. Though she knows that it is that time of the year where we enjoy some winter activities like snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and of course her most favorite... ice-fishing.
She is happy that it is ice-fishing season already. What she is not happy about it.. is that I spend so much time out in the frozen lake while I am having some pains on my back, toes and joint. She is complaining that when I am hurting and in pain, she takes the toll because I bother her to rub my back with her magic ointment.

Well, what can I do? I can't work full time now considering the weather. We have snow storms almost twice a week so we can't work on a regular basis for obvious reasons. And for obvious reasons... it is the best time when fishes bite!

Alone on New Year's Day

My Sweetie is in California. She will be back on the 8th [I hope].

This is the very first New Year's Day that we didn't celebrate together since we got married. When she told me her plans last year, I was okay with it. It only sank deep when she finally got the ticket 6 months after. And I finally realized it's impact when she finally said goodbye to me at the airport.

Facebook page where she updates her 12-day Vacation.

Last week, we had a really bad snow storm that led to cancellations of thousand of flights. I was secretly hoping that it will continue so I can keep Sweetie to myself and celebrate New Year with her. But I knew deep in my heart that this vacation meant so much to her specially that she will finally reunited with her cousin whom she had not seen for more than 10 years.

Well, my Sweetie calls me everyday since she left to check on me and to share how her day was. And every time we speak on the phone... I knew how happy she is and how she misses me so much. And that is good enough reason that I let her go - at least for just a couple of weeks.
