Ok, so I'm not really single. But being home without husband makes me feel a little bit like it. I was telling a friend last night that my schedule has not really changed-Liam and I are doing the same things as when Justin was here-but I feel different. I don't have to make dinner if I don't want to and that is kind of nice...kind of sad though too. So here are some things I have learned by day 3 of husband being gone:
1. I have to take the trash and the recycling out. Sick. I hate taking the trash out. And even worse is Liam's diaper pail trash bag. Sick. I hate going in the alley...I didn't even know how to unlock our back gate until Justin showed me last weekend. I just have never had to!
2. No one is there to turn my lamp off and put my book away. It's inevitable...I fall asleep reading every night. I used to be able to read for hours before bed if I wanted to and since Liam was born, I can seriously read one sentence and pass out. So the last few nights I have woken at 2 or 3 in the morning with my book next to me and my lamp on. Justin always does that for me.
3. I don't have a lot of laundry to do now! I love my husband but he changes clothes a lot. In one day he can change a lot...work clothes, working out clothes, after work clothes, etc. I knew this when I married him so I am not complaining but it makes for have to do at least a load of laundry a day to keep up with it and not get too overwhelmed. Right now, my laundry basket isn't even half full and I am kind of excited about that.
4. Leftovers. I don't usually have a lot of leftovers because ya know...dudes eat a lot. But now I do. No cooking dinner tonight you say? Sounds good.
With that though, I really do miss my husband. I would rather have no leftovers, do 5 loads of laundry a day and whatever else to be able to move to Raleigh with him right now. I miss him a lot and I know Liam does too. I am still praying that someone buys our house quickly. We are thinking of renting it out if something doesn't happen soon.
