Big Love

Last night after watching the fabulous new polygamy drama on HBO, I was laying in bed, alone, and thinking. There are some good things about my husband being on spring break and heading to NYC to see his friends:


I can leave my shoes wherever I want.

I can go to fabulous potluck dinner parties with my friends who live in the city (but it would have been fun for him to come with me on that one).

I can go on sushi dates with good friends I don't spend enough time with (but he would want me to go on the sushi date even if he were in town).

But.

BUT.

I have to sleep in that big bed all by myself, and after 7 months of being married, I don't like that.

I know about this one. It's the night. The night always gets ya. I hate sleeping in the big bed alone. And. It only gets worse as time goes on.

Also...
You do know that you are next on my list of bloggers to meet, right?

Oh Marcia. I'm so sorry that he's gone, but he'll be back. And he misses you too. And he probably has to share a bed with another dude, or the floor, which means he'll be that much happier to see you when he comes back ;-)

I've heard of people sleeping with a body pillow to cope...

Until your man gets back, engorge on sushi!!

And, erm, I might be late for this, but, where are your wedding pix? I mean, at least the bouquets and all that so I can see your colors. Because I envision you having a very stylish wedding.

Wedding pics! Good idea.

I hate sleeping alone too...I get freaked out at night enough as it is when he is right next to me let alone when I'm by myself!

I hate sleeping alone, but as the terminally single gal that I am, I consider my body pillow the best $12.00 EVER spent.

I guess because my husband has worked nights so much, I don't really miss him in the bed. I miss him before I go to bed, when I'm just hanging out alone. *sniff*

Is Matt bringing any cute lawyer friends to NYC with him?

(Oh, and I'm sorry you have to sleep alone!)

It's always night time that gets to you. I'm sorry sugar lumps, I hope you can get some REALLY good books and a few good movies to get you through it. That's usually what I do to make myself so tired I can sleep. I'm a scaredy cat so it's hard for me to sleep at night if hubby isn't there.

LOL, love the picture with your shoes. Your toes are pretty fantastical. ~sigh~ I hate you now. (kidding..)

Like the cute loafers, I have a pair of tan sued moccasins that I LOVE, I never buy casual shoes that are for every day. I get my "rocks" off by buying lovely strappy, wedge, stilettos, sexy shoes. It's hard for me to spend money on casual ones and when I do I wear them out in weeks. You'd figure I'd learn.

Not wanting to sleep alone after 7 months is a good sign. :)
I've been with Tarzan almost 10 years & I still hate it when he's gone at all.

You've got the cutest toes!

I TOTALLY understand!!! Try living at your mom's house on a very very single bed and having your husband in another country for 3 months!!! Only 2 weeks left....

I have a big ole pillow too and it helps when my husband is gone. Though, I do admit, I do have some fun when he's gone - no guilt for going out with my gay posse or just popping in a chick flick.

Also, dang it I want HBO! The polygamy show looks terribly fun/interesting.

Get a body pillow to cuddle with and act as a presence in that big bed of yours.

I guess I'm a bad wife because I enjoy the occasional night when D. is gone, now that he doesn't have to travel all the time for work. I have an alarm system and a dog, and a stack of good books and DVDs, and a bottle of wine for company.

Interesting... I travelled on my own seven months after being married, for a two day convention in Washington, DC. As a newlywed, I hated sleeping in a strange bed without my lobster (which is funny since I'd slept all my life by my self prior to him, LOL!). A few weeks after I returned, I started feeling a bit 'off'. After checking with the doctor I found out I was pregnant. I guess we partied hard after my return!

Soooo... did you like Big Love?
