Living the Single Life

I will be the first to admit that I do not enjoy living the single life. I hate going out, cooking for one, hanging at the house by myself, and being alone for long periods of time. 
I married my best friend for a reason. I love cooking with him or cooking for him. I enjoy going to parties with my husband because I always know that if I am needing someone to talk to or someone to laugh with he is always there. I love having "date night" at home, or going hiking with my husband. We do things together that I could not (or would not) do by myself. Even if we spend the whole day at our house doing nothing, it is till better than doing nothing by myself. 

And now I am a military wife. 

I know that my husband is going to deploy. I know that he will spend long periods of time away from home even if he is not deployed. And even though I am new to this and really have only a slight clue about what is going on, I know for sure that I will spend a fair amount of our marriage by myself. 

Am I ready for this? Well ready or not here it comes. 

Will I learn to love cooking for 1? Will I be able to get off of my couch and do something on weekends or evenings? I know that I will make friends, but what do you do to keep busy? Do you have a hobby? 
For now, I will be thankful that I have a husband coming home in a few days. And hopefully I will have ample time to think about what hobbies I could take up while he is gone. 

I love you Favorite, and I can't wait for you to be home.

Maybe I'll make my Mom happy and take up knitting! =)

It's like you're in my head!! :) I feel the same way. Being on my own (for training now, sans-deployment looming over us) has been waaaaaaaaay harder than I thought it would be. We've been apart more than we've been together since getting married last year - and we still have another year to go. But I find strength (and distraction) with this awesome blog community of other strong women going through the same thing (ish). We can do it sister-friend!!
