Husband away and don´t miss him one bit!

Not really looking for advice just wondered if I´m alone in feeling like this. My husband is working away just for 4 days and I´m home alone with my 9 mo and loving every bit of it grin
I don´t miss him at all and have hardly even thought about him, when he called last night I just wanted him off the phone, I know this isn´t a good sign for things to come, all my friends fall apart if their OHs are away from home. I am now wondering if I´m better off alone, probably a little extreme but I am so content!
Its not the first time he´s away and I always feel like this, tis very selfish of me really...

everyone can enjoy there 'own space' - but im sure you dont want rid premanently really!

do you think you would feel the same if he was away for say 3 weeks ?

It is easy to enjoy the novelty of your own space for a few days when life is so busy - it may not mean that you are not meant to be in a couple - just that you are enjoying the quiet.

I love my own space too. The weekends are not do good though!

No probably not hertsnessex wink

Glad to see I´m not the only one, feel a bit more "normal" now!

My husband goes away all the time for days or sometimes longer. I love my own space and don't miss him exactly, but it's always lovely to see him when he gets home (hopefully with a present!)

Are you on maternity leave at the minute ? I found when I was off work it was a right nuisance a lot of the time when DH came home or at the weekends.
I had this routine all worked out which best suited me and DS but DH had other ideas and it was hard accomodating those when I felt I knew best also I had to show DH some affection as well as DS or he got jealous and I really just wanted to cuddle my ickle wickle baby.

Should get easier as your baby gets older.

Peterpie - my dp is away this week - and quite frequently - and I love it too. Some relationships work better that way!

Count yourselves lucky girls. In 10 years of being with my DH we have only ever spent one month apart! I would love my own space sometimes!

yup!! same thing happened to me a month ago- i'd miss him on and off inthe daytime and at night, but not in th heart-wrenching, can't breathe, wish-you-were-here right now kinda way!!

DH has been working away through the week for a few months now, and it seems ok to me: I have my own routine, can do what I want in the evening, have a sandwich for dinner if I like instead of cooking a full meal, lie in the bath for hours without feeling like I'm ignoring him. Bliss. Mind you, I do have to sleep with the light on, and a big iron bar beside the bed in case of burglars. In fact, I can't really sleep much at all without him here.

Not that I don't miss him during waking hours too. More time for MN though wink

lol! I'm the same suenorth! Even put stair gates on at bottom and top of stairs in hope burglars will be unable to work out how to open them! Always look forward to dh getting back so I can get some kip!
