When the cat's away...


So Mr. Jetplane left early yesterday morning for Illinois. He hasn't been home since last year. I unfortunately couldn't go with him for the week because my recent 2 weeks off to be with my mother.
So needless to say I miss him... I miss him for all the standard reasons...its lonely in bed at night, I like someone there that can reach top shelf of cabinets, someone to unload the dishwasher, take out the trash, pick up the dog poop in the yard...you know the usual.

But its always nice to get a little alone time, don't you agree?? That's when your Secret Single Behavior comes out...


What's mine... well some of it is not all that exciting

1. I make all the food that Mr. Jetplane hates like Tuna Casserole (which I LOVE)

2. I will watch endless hours of Bravo and MTV and lay on the couch...ALOT

3. I will eat junk food...Mr. Jetplane prefers we don't have junk in the house

4. I will sleep on Mr. Jetplane's side of the bed

5. I will let Milo sleep with me in the bed (like the good ol days)

6. I may even let Charlie lay on the bed

7. I will go shopping and buy home decor items that Mr Jetplane thinks we don't need and will tell him we already had those.

8. I will go shopping and purchase wallpaper for the master bathroom and then talk him into putting it up when he gets back.

9. I will take long baths and blare music throughout the house. 10. I will drink copious amounts of champagne...out of red wine glasses.

11. I will work on crafting projects that Mr thinks are crazy (that's until he sees them all done).
What do you plan on doing when your significant other is MIA for a few days...

I love this post! I too, like to eat all the things my husband won't when he's gone. And, move the furniture around, let the dogs in the bed with me, watch all the shows I never get to when he's home. You know, the usual SSB!

I am too lazy to cook the yummy food I love when Hubby's away! Mostly grilled cheese or omelettes... and a lot of moping!

Such a cute post !
I indeed lay on the couch and watch lots of TV.

Shop at Hobby Lobby. I so agree with you. My hubby thinks it's silly but loves the finished project.

I also have music on while I am getting ready in the morning..I cant do that when he is here.

I spend way too much time on facebook playing "Medical Mayhem". I wear pajamas all day (even while checking the mail way down the street!) and I get to read uninterrupted!

I love your list. Those all sound perfect and I found myself smiling thinking of myself doing the very same things!

Since my S.O. has been away since Christmas eve with his family, I've taken up eating all the healthy food he hates, organizing my clothes/his apt/everything, and sleeping a ton! I miss him and can't wait until he comes home again.

Enjoy it!! There has to be some silver lining, right?

I think the junk food is a huge part of them being gone! I always find myself eating stuff that I would never normally have in the house!

I love that you specified that you'll be drinking your champagne out of red wine glasses ;)

Ams said...

One year hey?
I can do this long distance thing then. I know I can!
And you are right... there has to be some perks to having the house to yourself :)
