Kyle is in the middle of three weeks on nights. It's a serious drag (for both of us). I miss my hubby like crazy, but I'm thankful for that one hour a day we get to hug each other, go for a walk and play with Maizy.
And those other times?
Well, I've found myself somehow fulfilling every television show that portrays every depressed single girl. Now, I'm clearly not talking about dressing up and going clubbing (let's be honest, I wouldn't even know where to start with that one!), I'm talking more along the lines of PJ's and wine. And food. And girls nights, where we all eat ice cream (so thankful that I'm not the only one :)


- Maizy and I cuddle every night on the couch. Then, she sleeps next to me in bed. It's funny that I'd ever admit that, because one year ago, that completely grossed me out. She's actually a great spooning partner. 
- White wine with fresh fruit accompanies me more than necessary.
- I have a plethora of chick flicks from RedBox.
- I had a turkey hot dog for dinner, which I made in the microwave. Enough said.
- I tip toe around our apartment during the day.
- I've seen way too many episodes of The Real Housewives. 
- I've found myself at Target three times in one week. 
- The house is spic and span between the hours of 6:00 pm to 2:00 pm, then Kyle wakes up.
- We have dinner at 3:00 pm each day.
- I can't watch any detective shows, then I just sleep with one eye open and our knife set on the bed stand. 
- I'm convincing myself that I need ice cream, because that just makes sense when you look at this whole picture.

You may feel a bit depressed for me right now, but trust me, this is typical. Thankfully, so many of my girlfriends experience this every month, that somehow all of this is simply the normal routine of a resident's wife. 

More ice cream, please :)
Okay, now you may have pity on me. And my hips.


  1. this will pass, i promise! but sometimes those months just seem SO long! hang in there. and enjoy the ice cream without a shred of guilt! :)

  2. Oh my gosh Nick is on overnight for a couple weeks and this completely sums up my life right now, too! Spooning with the dog, tip toeing during the day, not being able to watch anything remotely suspenseful or scary at night - oh, and the amount of ice cream in our freezer! My sister actually opened it the other day and asked me what the deal was the all the ice cream...
