Dave left for a 4 day business trip this morning…at first I thought, ” A little me-time will be a nice change of pace. I can do whatever I want!” But as soon as he walked out of the door this morning with his carry-on looking really nice in his khakis and sweater, I thought, “I miss you! Come back! What am I going to do without you?!”
Well I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do, but I can let you know things I won’t be doing in his absence:
I won’t be taking out the garbage. I tend to shy away from stinky jobs. I’m very sensitive to odors.
This means I probably won’t be taking the dog out to poo. Which kinda puts me in a tough situation because the apartment will start stinking eventually. 85 pound dogs tend to create A LOT of stink.
I won’t be arriving at work on time. Without David to drag me out of bed in the morning, I have no hope of getting there on time.
I won’t be cooking! Not that I do it when he’s around, but at least now I won’t have wife-guilt.
I won’t be watching LOST. He made me promise, and I would like for my husband to think that I’m trust worthy. Maybe I’ll watch older episodes to get my Jack-fix for the week (kidding, Dave.. I won’t).
I won’t be watching chick flicks! This is something that won’t change in his absence. On-Demand comedies and ESPN it is. I like college basketball! P-I-T-T! Let’s go PITT!
Dexter will only be eating once a day, because I won’t remember to feed him at night. I’m a bad dog mommy.
I also know that I won’t be smiling as much, and I won’t be as content, and I won’t be as happy because my best friend won’t be right next to me.
….I won’t cry (well, maybe just a little).
