I've noticed a trend in my behavior. I like to call it a reset period. When my husband leaves, or I leave him, or basically any time that he and I are apart, I go through a short reset period. For about the first week I do nothing. Absolutely nothing. I wash the spoons when I run out. And flush the toilet. That about sums it up. My dirty clothes either go in the corner of the bathroom or the hamper in the bedroom. Dishes are just thrown in the sink to soak. I do take out the garbage I guess, but often I just try not to have to throw anything away. I pile stuff on the chairs and leave the babies toys where they lay. The house is a mess. Then I get back to normal. For about 3 days all I do is clean and fix all the stuff that I just made a mess of. Maybe it's not actually a reset, but a transition. It's how I go from me and him to just me. Maybe I need a little bit of time to readjust to living by myself again. Oh who am I kidding, I just like to take a vacation and what a great opportunity! =)

But I do miss my husband when he's gone. I miss cooking for him and helping him clean up the house or do dishes. Ahh the military life.


  1. Ugh, I bet it must suck being apart from your husband that much!

  2. Bless your heart. I know that sucks. I'm the opposite. I rarely sit down when Tim is gone just because I can't seem to figure out what to do without him...he helps me relax :)
