Do you miss those days?????

First let me just say that I wouldn't trade being married for anything!!!!!! I love being a Mrs and I would give my life up for my DH....but there are days and I am not ashamed to say this when I miss being on my own!!!!  I know it's just a faze but still....


I miss switching my phone off and watching sappy old movies that I have watched about 100 times on my couch eating popcorn or Icecream and not having to hear someone say how many times did you see that already????? Or just reading a book in bed and not listing to baby where is my so and so or honey I can't find my so and so!!!


I guess I just miss the little things that back then to me didn't mean all that much!!!!


What do you miss???? and be honest cause I can tell you this our DH's are going through the same thing lol

Actually for me it isn't so much about missing the days.... it's having a slight regret I never lived on my own before getting married... altough I admit if I had I may have never given it up to get married.... 


I have always lived with someone, and usually they are 10 x's more of a slob than me and I always manage to turn into the house maid..... I like when DH goes away for several days becuase guess what.... the house stays spotless the entire time he's gone..... 


A clean house isn't the only reason I wish I had lived alone first.... but it is a major driving force in the slight regret I feel, LOL......

I think you would have liked being on your own SpringBride2.. I was for 13 yrs before I met DH and let me tell ya it took some adjusting...lol We do a lot of things together and at times I just like being on my own and DH sometimes has a hard time understanding that....DH is as much of neat freak as I am but at times it's the little things that drive me up the wall....like believe it or not (honest to God's truth) DH uses more hairspray on his hair than I do LMAO and I can't stand it when he get's the bathroom counter all icky and dosn't clean it up!!!! He's more of princess than I am...lol

Oh my goodness do I hear you! DH and I are both only children, so although we're very social, we're also very comfortable doing our own things.


Before we met I had bought a condo. My friend was going through a break-up, so she moved in with me "for a year" (aka three). By the time she moved out, I was dating DH pretty seriously, so he was staying over a lot. However, it wasn't the same thing as living together.


I had about a year of living alone before DH (then FI) moved in, and I LOVED it! I mean, he was over three-four nights of the week, but I also adored the other nights of mismatched pjs, cereal for dinner, who cares if I have a blot of pimple cream on my chin, Gossip Girl marathons on the couch. I can still have that, I guess, but it just feels different.

Haha I hear ya sister ;) I loved the mismatched pjs....but you know what DH is use to me wearing things like over sized track pants and sweat shirts that should have made into the garbage bin....and when DH made a comment on that I just said "baby I love you and I would do anything for you but don't ever ask me to get rid of my comfy clothes" he said "we can get you new ones" which I responded with "these tattered clothes have seen me through the good times and the bad, does that me when you get old and tattered that I should trade you in"....that shut him up and fast lol

^ AAAAAAAAMEN, Lauren! I have really been enjoying having my DH around all the time since he just returned from a long deployment. But last week, he asked if he could go fishing and I practically pushed him out the door! It was wonderful to catch up on all my DVR shows, sneak some dessert (he is on a super healthy diet right now) and gab on the phone with my mom for an hour.


I will tell my DH that I need alone time and he will say, "We ARE alone!" LOL. Not exactly what I meant. Sometimes you just need girl time with yourself! I always think of it the way Carrie described it in Sex & The City: "SSB" -- Secret Single Behavior! :-)

LOL at all the comments!  I do sometimes miss the "me" time that I used to have, although while DH and I were dating, we were constantly together because I was assisting him with his radio station, so we were always out at the clubs taking pics, dropping off this or that, and just hanging out.


I have to confess that the thing that I am really missing the most is the going out to dinners that DH and I used to do every week before we moved in together.  I was hoping that we were going to be able to start doing that after we got situated with the house, but things have not been that smooth since we got here, but we have made a lot of great decisions on how to incorporate our "going out" into little romantic dinners on our deck, so that is a help.

OMG. I thought I was the only one that felt this way. I lived alone for a year in my house before FI moved in, and don't get me wrong, I love him to pieces, but sometimes I just want to be by myself! Lol. I love my quiet time--and he's really bad about letting me have it. He's such an AW that if I'm reading or working on something that doesn't involve him, he's constantly trying to distract me into paying attention to him. Blowing on me, tickling my feet, and just generally being annoying. When I ask him to leave me alone, he whines, "But I'm bored!" Sheesh. I'm ready to have a LO just to give him a playmate. LOL;)

You know, I guess I'm a bit fortunate in some respect; DH works a crazy schedule that calls for him to work days, have a few days off, and then work nights, so now that I'm off for the summer, I get quite a bit of alone time, so I can sit and watch what I want without really having to worry about much.  However, it can be difficult, too, because when he works nights, I don't get much time with him any way, since he's sleeping during most of the day and then having to get up to go work a twelve hour shift, only to come back home and crash again.  Usually when he works nights, by the time his days off occur, I'm ready for him to be home with me, which makes it even worse when he suddenly has to go in for overtime (like tonight).  I guess it's all about finding a balance of alone time and together time.

Amen to Gossip Girl Marathons ALONE! DH makes fun of me for still liking the show, so I have to plan when I will watch them when he isn't around, which is like NEVER!


I must say, this summer has been a bit of a treat... we have a summer rental at the shore, about an hour and 45 minutes from our house, and there have been many nights over the past two months that DH has left and gone down there with his buddies and stayed over and went fishing all day the next day... SO I HAVE ACUTALLY EXPERIENCED FULL ON ME TIME :) Oh and then I actually get to MISS HIM.... BOUNS!

I moved in with my DH a year before we got married and I am soooo happy I did because we had to get adjusted to one another.  Seems like before I moved in we had more quality time together if that makes sense.  By the time he got to my townhouse, dinner was already cooked, bathwater ran, music playing and we would just really enjoy one another. I only lived 10 minutes away from my job and now I live 20 to 25 minutes away. Actually it takes longer to get home because the freeways are congested and I take the streets, so it takes 35 to 45 minutes to get home. Now it seems there is never enough time in the day. By the time we get home, whoever gets home first cooks dinner, we try to watch a movie and then it is time for him to go to bed. I do miss having the days when I had my Charmed or Law in Order Marathon and I would veg out all day! I would make something light like a salad and some ice tea and crochet all day!  My hubby would kill me if all we ate was a salad for dinner and sometimes I really don't feel like cooking a full course meal during the week. But overall, wouldn't trade it for the world!

I don't miss being single at all!!! It was so lonely, and despite filling my life with social activities and having many suiters, I would never ever miss that period in my life. I guess it's because it took me a very long time to find the right man, and I got married in my thirties, rather than earlier. I feel sorry for all my singles girlfriends who are going through all these stupid dating games, the analyzing, the waiting, the hoping. Good grief, don't miss that at all and never will. So happy to be married.
