The Solo Life...For a Week

This coming week is going to be a bit strange around the JD household. That is because Wife is going on a trip. You see, wife is a teacher, and that means she gets spring break. She gets to go to Texas to see some family for a week. This presents two conflicting ideas in my head:

1. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy: Wife is gone so I can do things like order pizza, play loud video games, stay up late...etc. This idea is attractive to my carnal male side. I mean no one asking me to fold laundry or help with dishes. What more can a guy ask for?

2. Lonely...I'm so lonely. It's going to be an awfully empty house this week. No one to greet me or give me a hug when I come home from work. No discussion of the day's events over dinner. Not to mention the fact that after being married for 2.5 years, sleeping alone in bed for a week is going to be a tad weird.

I think that overall, I will start the week more along the lines of No. 1, but probably end up strongly in the No. 2 category. it is amazing when you in love and married, how much the other person becomes a part of your life. It really as if you share all things. She is part of me and I part of her. Separation is a horrible idea, I imagine that I am addicted to my wife much life someone addicted to crack. Going a week without a fix does not seem like a good idea. I will report back at the end of the week on this and how I fared.

Ha, well it started off fun. Nothing like stuffed crust pizza for dinner two days in a row. Now, though, I just want her back by my side.
