The Solo Life... In Perspective

So the week of solo living has come and gone. I figured that I would give it some time to put things in a proper perspective before writing about them. So here are my thoughts.

1. It truly is good and healthy to get a break from your partner every once in a while. I don't care how in love you are, you do something that annoys the other party in your relationship. I know that I constantly annoy my wife with how laid back and relaxed I am (read lazy). She bothers me with her slight (ok, not so slight) tendency to be anal. We both have agreed to accept these flaws in the other so we can be together, but man is it nice to not have to worry about it for a bit.

2. Being alone is fun...for about three days. It is great to be able to stay up till 1 am playing video games. It is great to be able to eat pizza every day and scoff at the recommended daily input of vegetation. all of that was fun, then I actually missed being responsible. I know this will come as a shock to those of you who know me, but yes, I have reached a point in my life where responsibility beckons.

3. I am madly in love with my wife, and being without her....sucks. I know this may sound all sappy and stuff, but it is literally true. This, in my opinion, is how you know you have found the one to marry. You just know. So, yes, I was very excited to get my wife back, and to proceed with life as normal. I realized that my life IS with her, and without her, life is pretty sad.

JD, your wife is pretty swell, so it's no surprise that life is better when she's around. I myself miss having her around :-(

You are soooo correct.

Wait, if staying up until 1am playing video games includes logging into XBox live on your 360, we need to exchange gamertags stat. My friends and I are itching to expand our Call of Duty 4 team. Let me know!
