How the hell did THAT happen?

Posted by Lissa on October 22, 2008

I lived on my own, in my own apartment, starting in July 2004.

I’ve only lived with Mike since this past May.

Yet he’s gone on a business trip and suddenly I rattle around, at a loss, unwilling to turn out the light and curl up by myself to sleep.

Even with the cat’s constant company in my lap.

Does that make me weak, that suddenly I *really* don’t like being alone at night?

Or does that mean we have a strong relationship, and is a good sign?

Hope it’s the latter. 

P.S. On the other hand, if you’re going to stay up until four in the morning on a whim, I highly recommend the Black Dagger books.  Not high-class literature by any stretch of the imagination, but entertaining and funny and sexy and well-written.  Finished three books last night 🙂

    Awwww, that’s because you’re in a good relationship! I am an impossible b**** on the days that boyfriend leaves after a visit or when I leave because going to bed alone/ back to being the only person in my apt SUCKS after being with him. Watching Buffy usually cheers me up.

    It sounds like a bit of both. Devotion and maybe you also let your social life dwindle a bit in the euphoria. Social, as in non-alcohol related occasions and events. Window shopping is good, library and flea markets, too. Just don’t sit around feeling blue, though. Some people clean, or bake, or knit up a storm, when distressed, or clean the car or the garage.

    Hang in there!
