All alone again

The first time Peter left me at home alone, it turned out to be 2 1/2 days. He has only left me one other time for another period of 2 days. This week is the longest as he has left on his first business trip for 5 days. I have a lot of trouble when he leaves me home alone. As the years go on, I grow more and more attached to living with him. I miss him every moment we are not together and find it harder every time he leaves. When I go away and leave him at home, it is not as hard, for some reason. I guess it’s because I am busy doing fun and interesting things, so I’m distracted. It’s totally different when I’m the one at home and not distracted by new experiences. I know I will get through it, but my heart hurts a little everyday he’s gone.

It is a little silly to whine about being alone when there are so many people out there who have not been lucky enough to find a partner in this life. I was very fortunate to find my soul mate so young in life. I know how lucky I am and I treasure every moment I have with the love of my life.

Now that Peter is a manger, he will be going on two business trips a year. I will most likely travel with him on these trips because I love traveling and with half the trip paid for, why not?! Plus, I love shopping and exploring and I could do that while Peter is in meetings. Then we would hang out at night!

Unfortunately, I was unable to go with Peter this week. I am quite sad because he is in Nashville, TN, which is the country music capitol of the world. I can’t even begin to imagine all the wonderful places I could have seen. Oh well, I was desperately needed at work this week. One of our supervisors is away on vacation and so, as the remaining supervisor, I must stay at work to do the paperwork and banking. However, it is rumored that Peter’s conference next year will be Orlando. Haha, why not go to Disney World for the fourth time in 5 years?! It sounds like a great idea if you ask me.

Anyway, I am sure this week will go by quicker than I think because I work every single day Peter is gone. I won’t have much time to even think about being alone. Plus I am going to watch lots of movies and distract myself with happy things as much as I can. I will be A-O-K! :nerd:

    I don’t think Bryan’s ever left me alone for more than a few hours, though I leave him alone all the time 😛 well, he’s welcome to come with me, he chooses not to.

    Orlando > Nashville. Something to look forward to!

    I know what you mean about being more attached. Before my husband and I moved in together, I was living alone and had no issues with it. But… then you get used to always having someone else around! I still do ok when my husband is away on a business trip, but it does feel really weird, especially going to bed alone.

    Hopefully you can go with him next time! That’d be nice if you could go to Disney World again 😀 I hope you’re feeling better!

    I totally know what you mean about it being way easier when you’re the one going away. I find it easier when I go away to conferences but when Josh goes away it’s way harder. I hope you will keep busy this week and it goes fast for you!
