My SO is currently away for thenext 2.5 WEEKS so right now I’m watching trashy TV, eating chips for supper and have a bottle of wine on the go 🙂 Generally I get something indulgent for food, but with him gone for 2.5 weeks I’ll probably only do that once or twice.

Oooh, love this topic. I usually take the little one to Panera or Chipotle for dinner, and once he’s in bed I binge watch Netflix (if I can stay awake long enough!). I like the McDonald’s idea too. Mickey D’s is definitely a guilty pleasure for me!

Glad to see we’re all on the same page, lol.  I watch a whole lot of Netflix and get a really good dessert, since he doesn’t like sweets.

I catch up on all the Netflix shows he hates – right now it’s Gilmore Girls! And maybe some cake 🙂

Swebs14:  my husband’s been away for the past week, so I’ve been on weddingbee.  We both agreed not to surf the web when we were together in the evenings.  I prefer our conversation, but it’s been fun to read about and comment on all of the happy (and not so happy) wedding planning ladies.

I get caught up on shows on Netflix.  My husband is going away for 2 weeks in November and I’m excited for some Netflix time!

I watch the sorts of shows he hates (right now I’ve been into that Love Prison) and I eat the foods he hates.

If I can I try and go out with friends, but they all have families themselves so that’s more difficult

I used to hate it! Now, I can watch whatever I want on T.V. (Teen Mom, Couples Therapy, Real Housewives, etc) and I laze around on the couch….or I read WB boards. ….Actually, he’s working late tonight and I love it because Fridays are “Bridedays” on TLC and I can watch as many wedding shows as I want. If I’m restless, I clean up the house, since that is hard to do with a guy who has all his work stuff lying around everywhere.

My husband works 2-4 overnights a week so when he’s gone I eat snacks, snuggle with my puppy on the couch and watch crappy tv- usually reality shows. I actually enjoy the quiet time.

Swebs14:  I like to watch stuff either on tv or Netflix that he normally wouldn’t like, go shopping, eat in bed (which he absolutely hates), blast Pandora on the laptop (which usually boasts Disney tunes or Christmas songs which drives him borderline crazy), read, and write. When we’re together we try to do things we both like, so I do enjoy that one night a week where I can just do and watch whatever I like.

Call my other boyfriend.

 

KIDDDDDIIIINNNGGG. Watch the Kardashians, eat ridiculous food, do all my beauty treatments that I don’t want him to know about, and then when he calls tell him I just got back from yoga and I’m sauteeing up some broccoli.

I watch Netflix and clean obsessively. Maybe because he’s not around to immediately mess up my clean house? Haha. Oh, and I eat chocoalte frozen yogurt. 🙂
