|My husband and I in Spain!|
So I don't make the bed sometimes when I am alone...shoot me if you like! Today I needed to change the bed so I just washed the sheets. They are laying on the bed in a heap. The sheets were dirty. That is my first excuse. Then I wanted to do some yard work. As I raked up the last leaf I realized I need to go and buy some more coffee. As I was driving to the grocery I remembered that I wanted to have sushi and my husband doesn't jump at that suggestion. I shopped and then drove to the sushi restaurant. It is a beautiful day so I drove home at a leisurely pace.
I still haven't made the bed. I've taken a nap, cleaned up the dishes and put the yard debris in the bin. There was even a walk and a glass of wine.
It is good practice. But, I do know that I don't like being alone, even though I can march to my own drummer. If that is coming down the pike, it will take a lot of getting used to. Even with practice, it will never feel right.
Hi ~ B,ReplyDelete
How long will he be in Spain and do you have the margaritas ready? :)
I can tell you from experience that it does take a lot of getting use to and it never feels right. Enjoy whatever time you have together and don't postpone anything you really want to do. Live in the present-the future will take care of itself. You can prepare for it, but you can't anticipate everything.ReplyDelete
Sorry, my iPad has its own idea on what I should write.ReplyDelete
Although we often spend time apart, I would miss our nightly chats. My husband is my best friend.
Thank you all for your comments. My computer has been on the "non=responsive" mode and is driving me nuts.ReplyDelete
My husband is home now...he drove 1700 miles in two days. Maybe he missed me too. I try very hard not to let on that I am lonely. It is not any fun conversation...in fact I find it about as uplifting as a conversation about surgery. But, you know what Donna, we do need to talk about it. Somehow I think it would help.
Jan, we are learning to talk on the phone or Skype...we are better at communication because of the time we spend apart. That is a good thing.
Blue Orchid...I need a bat cave to scream in once in a while. Can I borrow yours?
