Temporal Rift

Brandon’s gone for the week.

It’s wawy wawy qwayet it the house.

Why is it that when your significant other goes away, suddenly you just don’t know what to do with your time?

I mean, I still have the same stuff I have to do when he was here.  There are plans with friends and other people that I could have done on my own with him at home or not.

But then, once he’s out, suddenly the same amount of time that I have seem to multiply even though if he was here, we would be doing pretty much the same thing.  But now I feel like I have more time to do more thing.

Same amount of time. Minus one person. Suddenly it seems twice as much.
Doesn’t make any sense, does it?

And a whole lot of friends and activities come out of the wood works.  Let’s go get dinner. Let’s go get lunch.  I mean, couldn’t you just call me anyway even when Brandon is here?  Not that I’m complaining but, really, you guys can make plans with me even when he’s here.  I don’t have to be at home with him all the time.  And he knows that.

Actually, he likes it that I go out and see friends once in a while.  LOL.

Just because we’re married, it doesn’t mean that we can’t hang out separately.  I’m sure everyone knows that, but you couldn’t help yourself anyway.  I believe I’ve done that to some other friends too.  But I have gotten better at calling up Aurora just to hang with her without James.

It’s one of those unwritten rules everyone seems to follow instinctively.  Perhaps it’s time we all start to change that.

Married couples are individuals too!  😀
