On my Own

As a big, all grown-up, fully independant woman I shouldn’t even be posting this.  However, my husband is leaving tomorrow for a week of vacation with “the boys.”  This really shouldn’t bother me.  After all, I was a single mom for three years before I even met my husband.  I stayed by myself all the time and I even managed to do okay.  For the last nine years we have only been apart a couple of times and I am really not looking forward to this.

He has become a bit of a “crutch” for me.  I always have someone to go out with.  I always have someone to go to the store with.  No strange places by myself, no worrying about who has my back in a restaurant, no concerns about breaking down on the side of a road and being alone.  If he isn’t with me…he is just a phone call away.

I guess this next week will give me a chance to make it on my own again.  Still, I am not looking forward to it.

    Dear Joan,
    You are going to do wonderful this week. I am only a phone call away, and about 30 minutes of crazy, speed demon driving if you need me!

    And just think about all the fun you are going to have with the kids!

    Miss you!
