My wife is getting ready to leave me. No, not that kind of leave, she hasn’t fallen out of love with me, yet. She’s heading back to Virginia to take care of her son who is having his tonsils removed. It’s normally not an overly big deal but he was born with 3 holes in his heart so any kind of surgery becomes more of a big deal than normal. They have to take him down to Wake Forest just to do the surgery because of it. Cheri is going to take off on Tuesday and be gone through the Thursday of the next week. So she’ll be gone 9 days. So some things will change around here and some things will stay the same.
Same – I’ll probably watch a lot of TV and sports. Change – I can watch the shows and sports that Cheri doesn’t like without the guilt of making her watch.
Same – We still have to eat. Change – Our meals will suck in comparison. Cheri cooks the majority of our meals. Full meals as in meat, potatoes, vegetables. Our meals this week I have to take care of which means box dinners or fast food.
Same – I have to work. Change – The 4 days I work while she’s gone, I’m only working half days. I’m dropping the kids off at school at 7:45 going to work at 8, then leaving work at 2 (6 hrs) and picking the kids up at 2:20. Works out nicely, I will say this is the only part I like about Cheri leaving, is working half days.
Same – Kids are going to their mom’s on the weekend. Change – I will be home all alone. While I love just kicking back with my baby on the weekends, I am a loner at heart and will enjoy hanging out all by my lonesome. I may have to reinstitute naked Fridays.
Same – I have a car. Change – I’ll be driving Cheri’s car. My car is more comfortable and gets way better gas mileage so she is taking it to Virginia.
Same – Cheri’s mom will have all kinds of drama. Change – Cheri will be stuck with her dealing with it. Hopefully Cheri doesn’t catch her crazy and bring it back. She’s starts acting like her mom, I’m sending her ass back to Virginia.
Same – I’ll pretend I’m in charge. Change – Cheri will still be in charge. I call her boss (she doesn’t like it) and I call myself her bitch (she says she doesn’t like it, but I secretly think she does).
Same – I’ll be sitting in the living room, chillin like a villain. Change – I’ll be able to sit in the recliner (probably naked, don’t tell Cheri). She gets the recliner because of her issues. It’s the only piece of furniture she can sit comfortably in. I usually sprawl on the couch, sometimes on the floor, sometimes a combination of both. I can sit anywhere so it doesn’t bother me that she gets the comfortable chair. It’s my superpower to her, she’s always uncomfortable where as I can get comfortable anywhere.
Same – I’ll look at online porn. Change – NO SEX FOR A WEEK!!! That’s BS, she can’t go now. We have to change her plans. I just hope after a week, I don’t mistake the cat for, um, you know, pussy.
I don’t really have any plans while she’s gone. Other than a naked weekend, I better remember to keep the door locked. I’d feel bad that she’s leaving, except I know she’ll miss the cat more than me. Hope the cat can handle not getting spoiled for a week. Guess we’ll see.
Maybe I’ll get some good blogging done. If I can tear myself away from the online porn that is.
