In case you missed the sappy good bye Instagrams, Mr Suger is away at the moment. He’s having a great Aussie adventure of epic proportions fishing in the Northern Territory. It’s absolutely his thing. It’s pretty much entirely not mine. So I’m here at home and enjoying the peace and quiet that is an empty house. I read something about fire signs and enjoying their own company, alone time, and it’s the truth. One hundred and fifty percent correct.
And then this week, it sort of isn’t.
At night, when I finally pack away my laptop, the quiet is lonely. And lonely isn’t something I’ve ever really done in my life. Large family, close siblings, all that jazz. I’ve never been lonely in the quiet. But this week, there have been times that I have been. Don’t tell Liv. I find myself heading to bed early to read and escape the quiet. I miss him. What can I say?
Somewhere along the way, the people I know, the lives shared, they got to me. And yes, part of me wonders if this is a ramble produced from wine and watching the new Annie movie. It’s weird, they were right, Jamie Foxe is adorable, though. But it’s true. Tough exterior well and truly gone. Replaced with a giant cuddly bear apparently.
So yes, I miss my husband when he’s gone, but I am loving the space, the quiet and the room to pull together the fifty million projects I have on the go at the moment. Between my upcoming Instagram workshop, a retreat I’m attending (more on that soon), the Leave Home Blog’s 21 Days of Student Meals Challenge AND new website and social media clients, having a relationship to maintain was going to be inconvenient if I’m honest.
Relationships take work. Businesses and blogs take work. Sometimes it’s almost impossible to juggle the two. So Mr Suger’s timing it perfect. Now in the quiet of our new home, this place we built together, I enjoy this time to myself. I work hard and I sleep lots. Then when that husband person of mine comes home I will welcome him with open arms. Work done. Mind clear. And longing for some company. And that, my friends, will be a good day.
But thank goodness it’s a week or so away yet.
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
I’m a fire sign and enjoy my own company as well, but only for so long. I think it helps that hubby and I have a dog, so I get her company when he’s not there. Hope you get all your projects done 🙂
Thank you, fingers crossed I get there in the end. Haha. And maybe a dog would be a perfect compromise, then even after Mr Suger gets home, him and the dog can go and play while I work. Haha. 😉
I am the same… crave some peace and quiet then after about two days I miss my hubby! My problem though is I use the alone time to watch tv instead of working on productive things! lol
Haha. Netflix and I are like BFFs at this point.
Awwwww! And after all that shit you gave me…… I could totally pull some out some burn lines! But I won’t, because it sucks and I know it. We will be there next weekend, all night chats and giggles I promise. And in the mean time, Skype sex 😜😘😘
Haha. I was wondering if you’d read this one. LOL. And no Skype anything dude, no reception. I literally got CUT OFF cold turkey. Le sigh. Next weekend is going to be awesome. I hope I remember how to actually be with people, I might have turned into a hermit by then. Haha.
