My DH works offshore. He's gone two weeks, then home two weeks, so we are apart half the time. He calls me every night when he's gone, but since we both have pretty boring lives when we're apart, there's not a whole lot to talk about, and I feel like we've kind of gotten into a rut, just mainly asking each other how our day was and that's it. Since half of our time is spent this way, just talking once a day and having boring conversations even then, it almost feels like I'm only part of a marriage when he's home. So what are some ways that we can stay close when he's gone? He does have Internet access occasionally, but it's during times that I can't get online, and I can't get any mail out to him, so snail mail is out. Any suggestions at all would be appreciated.
