personal problem

I still can't get used to being away from my better half during work hours and after some years already I should be. It's not that I don't like to be alone, I've spent time with other people and maybe I don't know anyone I enjoy spending time with but usually as soon as that time with someone else starts I'm just dying to go back home. I don't "work" but I do spend those working hours and sometimes more making bath and body products for my small home-based business so I'm not bored. I just really miss him no matter how short of a time he's gone.

 

I didn't know people's assumptions could get so out of hand. I'm positive I'm not the one who needs a hobby. :)

Re: personal problem

  • Really? What do you mean, you should be used to it? As in, you guys used to spend all your waking hours together??? How old are you? How long have you been living together? So many questions...This post just does not compute.  

     

  • you need a hobby, dude.

  • I mean I should be used to not being with him when he's at work. Other than that we do spend all of our time together. We've lived with each other for 5 years now. I don't mean I miss him like OMG I'm so upset and miserable, just miss him.
  • lol...I said I run a home-based business, we also have a 3 year old boy so I have plenty to do, I don't need any extra hobbies.
  • the only answer would be to make a suit for yourself out of his skin or hair (why not his skin AND hair!)  so that you could wear it when you miss him.

    problem solved, you are welcome!

    Tarnation!

    a. it is not.

    b. I TOLD YOU it could be easily remedied by fashioning yourself a suit of his skin.

    c. or keep one of his fingers in your pocket. some formaldehyde will preserve it nicely if kept airtight.

    Tarnation!

  • lol Thank you so much for that advice.
  • oh.  well i miss my husband too sometimes when he's at work.  but you make it sound like you're really lonely.

  • LOL @ Edie

    OP, are you my bizarro twin?  I just told my H yesterday that with both of us working from home in 600 sq ft I feel like I'm not getting my required "me" time.  He usually WFH once a week or less, but he has been home every.day this week.

    ETA: I wish he would be at the office more and at home less!  I get annoyed if we're spending every waking moment together and I start inventing reasons I need to leave.

  • he doesn't miss you when he is getting his rod massaged in the copy room.

    you need to STFU and go cook him a nice meal.

  • Sounds to me like you need regular adult contact.  Working from home all alone with a three year old in tow is my idea of pure helll.

    I think you need more help than just a hobby.  You honestly get distressed if you're away from your DH while he's at work?  Sounds like OCD to me.

  • No, I specifically stated I didn't. All I was ever saying was after 5 years I still miss my husband when he's at work.

    I'm sorry everyone takes everything so dramatically but I do admire some people's sadistic sense on humor.

    It's a quick fix though, I don't see it keeping well in to next year

    Besides that, flesh is so 2010

    Well then I guess it's not really a personal problem, as  you initially described it, and is more like a charming quirk of yours. Does your dh miss you all day too?

    And I am still wondering what the heck you meant by the I work from home but I don't spend most of my time at home thing. Where do you work, what do you do, where do you do it, who watches your child while  you do it?

  • With him saying he does and being just as happy as I am when he comes home I'd say he does. I work from home but I do need to leave the house a lot. Networking, marketing, meetings, getting supplies I can't wait for to be shipped and things of the sort. My son goes to preschool.
  • Is there something wrong with me that this post does not compute in any way,shape or form for me?

    I cant wait to kick my fi out the door and really dont look forward to him coming home. okay not really that bad but I like being alone and the man talks A LOT.

  • Do you have friends you could call and see for a distraction? This is weird to me.  How long is he at work? I think you need to put on your big girl panties and get over this. It's ok to miss him but it sounds like you are really upset.

    Always be yourself. Unless you suck.
