All by myself

I'm by myself at home on a weekend day! I don't even remember the last time that this has happened. My husband left at 7:00 for work and I have mixed feelings about the day. At first, I believed that it would be super fun to have a girly day: a chick flick, a wardrobe remix (winter vs spring clothes), a little bit of crafts (a yoga bag) and a cup of tea with my very first japanese magazine (cotton friend). In other words, a girl dream! Well, feminists will burn bras in front of my apartment because it seems that I'm slightly dependant of my husband. Not that I can't do anything by myself. I even had a very good time today. It's just that I missed him sitting next to me (playing games on his laptop) when I watched the film, his comments when I came out of the walk-in closet with a new outfit, his blown kisses from accross the room when I crafted and his “interest” (lets not kid ourself) in craft/fashion when I looked at the magazine. Am I a bad wife if I enjoyed my quiet little day alone? Nah, I don't think so! It just means that I love him but that I still need some girly time for myself. Anyway, he can't handle that much: Honey, look at that japanese skirt! Honey, do you think she is a good actress? Honey, do I look boring in that outfit?.......for an entire day!

I love my own company - although unfortunately I rarely get to enjoy it! I'm glad you enjoyed it...I think there's much truth in absence makes the heart grow fonder, even for just a few hours!

I like it when Andrew and I spend time apart and I get to miss him. :) We are usually together, so it's kind of fun to remember what it was like when we were dating.

I hope you enjoyed your day! I would kill for a day 'all by myself.' ;)

Due to my husbands work, I have to spend quite some time alone with our 2 children.
I found it VERY hard at the beginning, especially sleeping alone!! But as years have passed by I "have got used to it" hmmpf!!(I'd rather keep him at home!!)

Your post gave me the feeling that you are very much like me concerning this topic...extremely fond of your husband and a family person - good for you I say :0)

I think it's good for a relationship to be separated now and then! It seems maybe selfish, but I had a good time for myself when I left last week my youngest one (1,5 years old boy) with a nanny (I never did it before, neither with our 2 eldest children - 4 and 6 years old). Nobody around here and it gave me a deep satisfaction!! :D

I am like that with my fiancee I must admit. I like to have him around, even if we aren't really doing things together or communicating. It's just nice to know you have someone there. Lord knows he's heard enough about a knitting pattern, or obscenities at dropped stitches! LOL.

It is nice to have some own time every now and then, but I understand your feelings totally, I have the same. When my husband has to go away for his work, like now, I miss him so much.
