Home Alone Not Good...

Thursday, October 17, 2013

My husband has been out of town since Tues. & I am "Home Alone." There is a good side & a bad side to that...It seems like when there is one other person in the house to "watch" me, I behave better...get the proper sleep, have meals at a normal time & exercise regularly. With Henry gone, I don't have as much structure in my schedule which can be dangerous for me. I feel like I am constantly "regrouping" & getting back on the SP Wagon...I haven't really fallen OFF the wagon, but I am running alongside it & I haven't let go & don't intend to...Thanks for your support. Take care

    I appreciate all your supportive comments. Just for the record, it does not bother me to be "Home Alone" other than my eating habits. I have wonderful "girl time" with my many friends & I'm not frightened or bothered to have my husband out of the house. I guess that sometimes I just feel like a kid heading for the cookie jar as soon as the Mom leaves the room. It sounds corny but that is the feeling I get. ANYway...thank you for the support...Take care...

    My husband is out of town, too, and I have the same problem. When we had kids in school, THAT schedule is the one I was on. I keep having this fantasy that I'm the cat lady out in the wilderness, with cows and horses to feed, and a little garden cottage to keep tidy (for my own pleasure). That seems to help me have a nice picture of dreaded routine, even in this very enclosed suburban house I live in... with one cat.

    I know just how you feel! When my DH used to travel, I loved the first day-- It would be a "me" day-- I'd go explore and do things I wanted to do without worrying whether it was what he wanted to do. After the first day or two though--- I got the blahs and started not doing so great.. then if teh trip was too long, I started eating really badly, smoking in the house in front of the TV (I don't smoke anymore but when I did, I would not smoke in the house when DH was home!) I was always happy when he came home! Try to think of some positive "Just for ME" things you'd love to do with your solo time and do them! It might be invigorating!

    I don't like being alone either. Maybe invite a grand child, niece or nephew to stay over, or a friend. That's what I do.

    I do my best when I'm alone. I eat better, exercise ( because there is no one around to watch me) chores get done..... I get side tracked when my husband is here.
