Wow...going mos. w/out spouse...that's hard to imagine. I *think* I'll do ok, because I will drive home every weekend. Right now my husband works a diff. shift than I do, so I already am used to not seeing him a lot. I'm hoping that just being away during the week will work out for us. I'm limiting the schools I'll be applying to (geographically), because I will not move to a school that I can not commute home from.
