    I haven't seen her in three days.

    1) I haven't seen her in three days.
    2) I haven't seen her for three days.

    I understand 2) very well. But I'm got confused about sentence (1).
    What does the time clause in three days mean there?

    Re: I haven't seen her in three days.

    They mean the same thing. But in other contexts "in three days" means something else.
