My So Called Single Life

12 May

So my husband has been out of town for a few days.  Even though I am now married, I still consider myself somewhat of a token single girl.  Prior to my first magical meeting with Charlie outside of contracts class at LSU law, I had been a very single person for many years.

Even though it takes a little more getting use to, I still love being alone.  I never get bored or lonely.  Not to say I don’t miss my husband, I just really like my time.

My mother in law asked me the other day what I have been doing with myself since Charlie has been away? Easy, reverting back to my old single habits…

Eating soup for dinner, happy hour with my girlfriends, and tons of super trashy television, because I can.  Oh, and also sharing my bed with my favorite raisin face…

This is not much different from my prior single life, except that included smoking cigarettes in the bathtub and listening to Billy Holiday. 

My house is dirty, clothes are not clean and there are little chihuahua hair dust bunnies everywhere. 

However, the dark chocolate box of candies is much lighter and my mind is filled with enough reality television to get me through the first few days when Charlie returns.

    No cigarettes or Billy Holiday here, but I too am shocked at how quickly I went back to my old habits – 10pm shopping excursions, cheese + crackers + wine for dinner, lots of DVR and staying up way too late, piles of things around the house (organized piles of course). I’ve got lots of cleaning to do before hubs comes home. I do make the bed every morning tho, which is totally a hubs deal because I used to leave mine unmaid for weeks. It’s more comfy to crawl in to an unmaid bed.

      Is that “unmaid” a clever pun or just a typo error?

        oh yes, a clever pun 😉 … an unmade bed.
