Am I the only one that LIKES (or at the very least doesn't mind) alone time when my OH is gone? I love him don't get me wrong but I have always had a loner streak in me and that streak strangely likes being alone.

It's him who has the aspersions anxiety lol.... Me? I'm kind of like a good dog I guess, happy when you come home but also I understand that sometimes you have to leave lol.

I like being alone...for SHORT amounts of time. Like hours during the day. Maybe a day or two wouldt be awful if we didnt a have kids (meaning its not like I would be getting a break and alone time and b I am a big chicken at night.

But 9-13 weeks, I would be a total and complete wreck. Well, I would make it work and ajust of course but would hate it.

Oh, yes, don't get me wrong...when he was here all the time it was awesome having an evening or part of a day all to myself. Or even a weekend if he was out of town. But he was gone for 10 weeks. Home for 12 days. Now another 9-13 weeks. There is even a (small) potential I may not see him in the flesh again until November of this year, although I'm really, really trying not to think about that.

Thus, a pity party for myself. I am so, so thankful he doesn't want to be career military. I couldn't do this for the rest of my life. Also entirely thankful for my family, friends, coworkers, and my dogs. Couldn't do this without them, either.

Ooooh no, I like it too. For short doses, like overnight. I love having the bed to myself (and the dogs, they come to bed when he's not in!!). I like lounging around the house. I don't sleep so well without him though, oddly.

But I love it when he comes back the next morning too

I really don't like being away from him away from home though, on the other hand.... I can't ever sleep when I'm away. Feels wrong.

I don't know, maybe I'm weird then? I don't mine being alone ay night (of course my parents are here so there are other people in the HOUSE at night and sometimes during the day ... my parents are 70 years old now so once every month or for a week or two I come home and help them care for the animals and what not). but even when they go on their trips and I stay here alone with just me and the dogs, I don't get freaked out, even when I watch something scary because 1) I have a gun, 2) I know my way around my property and my house far better then any intruder would 3) I have dogs that would at the very least would alert of someone strange in the vicinity. and 4) there is only one way on and off the property and it is locked with a bolt cutter proof lock.

Went over to the old apartment to sign the lease break and leave my last month of rent. Marley was SO excited to see me and so sad looking when I left a few minutes later. I miss that leash-reactive champion back talking snuggler.

So our DM apparently pulled BeAu to the side and was talking to him about dating and policies and such. Neither of us are managers, and because we both have the same last name we've been on opposite shifts forever now. And BECAUSE we have the same last name, I'm not sure how he deducted the idea that we were dating. But apparently it's now a problem and we can't work in the same store.

Supposedly he's talking to me tomorrow morning when I go in, which is a major PITA, I foresee. I'm going to get cornered into moving stores or quitting. Moving stores isn't a feasible option with the crappy pay/hours they give me. So I'll be forced into quitting and looking for another job.

Which means another job down the drain in less than 6 months.

And I was just talking about how much I LIKED this job, too.

I know it was time.
I move too much, they are heavy, most haven't been read in years, I am far too emotionally attached to all of them, I buy too many, they were beginning to just take up space and gather dust

I donated all my books to the library they were so happy to receive them. Lots of best sellers and popular books as well as a few they hadn't seen before and plenty for the kids section.

297 books. And they are all gone
I guess it's not a vent. It's bitter sweet really. I'm just a little sad. I just couldn't keep moving with all of them.

Bye bye books
