Married Alone

When I travel without my husband I miss him so much I start to see him everywhere.

I consider myself to be an independent woman. I like to spend a lot of time alone and I have big ambitions for things I plan to accomplish. However after spending six days traveling and visiting with my family without the company of my husband has made me realize how much I miss him.

If you are a regular reader of this blog you might have a skewed point of view of my husband since I always seem to be complaining about him moving my stuff or interrupting my train of thought. Mostly this is because when something annoys me I find it satisfying to organize my thoughts by writing them down and as an introvert it is easy to become annoyed by sharing space with another person.

But on the other side of that coin it is nice for an introvert like me to have someone who is always there when I just need someone to keep me company or to cuddle up with. A pillow just isn’t the same. My sister and I had to share a bed in the hotel room in Indianapolis and she did not appreciate my snuggles.

So for all my complaint I hate being away from my husband. Besides when I travel by myself my life is not my own. The first day of this trip was my brothers birthday followed by my youngest sister’s graduation followed by mother’s day followed by my second sister’s wedding planning. I like that I can be involved in so many celebrations but I feel a bit like I have to winterize every other part of my life including work, running, practicing, and being married in order to do it.

Maybe I am just not a very efficient traveler. Maybe if I were more strict about keeping to my routine I would feel more up to speed with the rest of my life while I am on the road. Right now it seems that I can work or I can be on the road but not both. Does anyone have any suggestions on this? How to keep productive and connected while on the road?
