I order take out food and do girly things like facials and pedicures. 

But honestly I don’t like being alone for a long period of time (especially at night) so I would probably have my mom come stay with me and we would go shopping at the mall and watch Doctor Who…. πŸ™‚

This might sound funny, but i LOVE when my DH goes away for a night or two.  I never get the apartment to myself!  I order takeout, watch bad reality tv, and talk on the phone with my girlfriends.  I also usually do some cleaning while blasting my music.

My BF goes away for maybe 3 days a week, 1-2 weeks a month so I’ve gotten used to having ‘me’ time, so much so that if I didn’t have it I’d actually start getting a bit annoyed with his constant presence! Haha

Firstly, I check the TV schedule and I put the timer on all of the program’s I love to watch but can’t because he won’t watch them. Or I pick out my favourite girlie films (wedding related these days!). I give myself a mini pamper session while watching said tv/chick flick which is just bliss. I just seem so have so much more time when he’s not here that I just get so much more done!

Saying that, the night before he gets back I always go to the supermarket and pick out something he will love for dinner the next day. As much as its nice to have the space, I am definitely glad when he comes home πŸ™‚

Live my life! Do the things I know he doesn’t especially enjoy. Go window shopping even if I don’t spend money. Get ideas from store displays on how to rearrange the things I have whether it’s household or wardrobe.Catch up with girlfirends. Have a long luxurious bath with a glass (or two) of wine. Put on some cozy sweats and watch TV shows he doesn’t enjoy.

Misbehave. Like eat ice cream for breakfast, take long naps and watch trash television.

I spend most of my summer DH-less, as he works about an hour-and-a-half away from home, coordinating the kitchen of a summer camp from June-August (he’s home one night a week). DD is home with me, so we have lots of girly days… movies, manicures, dates at the park, etc..

I enjoy myself WAY too much! I get pizza and wine and watch wedding shows and go to bed at 8pm and wake up at 4am to go running!

I start to miss him around day three, though. And FI goes away for work every couple of months!

I usually hang out with one of my girlfriends, watch girly tv shows that FH doesn’t like and lounge around the house. I’m extra lazy when FH isn’t here.

I would go to the grocery store and buy things SO doesn’t like so I could eat them, LOL, and watch tons of Netflix streaming and movies, probably some girly ones but I actually mostly like horror and sci-fi so that, too, and INTERNET FOREVER. Call a friend and see about hanging out or going for a walk?

Mine is gone for the second weekend in a row…the first weekend I was a bite sad, but this one is fine! πŸ™‚ Weddingbee (ummm…I’m already married), lots and lots of internetz (clips of Pitch Perfect), bath…not many ideas really! He is SO productive, that I like doing nothing!

I fall asleep with the TV on, order take out, watch wedding shows in bed with said take out, don’t do the dishes until he is about to come home.

Oh and shop. πŸ™‚

I’m the one that’s normally “on the road” so Lord only knows what he does.  Probably straps on every gun he owns and staggers around like Festus on Gunsmoke.  I know what I do when I’m on travel….lay in the middle of the bed and go the best to restaurants I can find to gorge myself like a piglet.  πŸ™‚
