Yes, indeedy. The first time Mr. Rattus went off somewhere without me was a convention, somewhere around our tenth year together. My initial response was snivel, snivel, boo hoo, I'm going to miss you so much. Well, yes, I did miss him, but also enjoyed time to myself. The next time he went off was on his first yearly week-long visit to his mother out west. This time brought about an "I'll miss you, have a good time, see you in a week". Subsequent to that, I ended up taking a week of my vacation at the same time so I could spend an entire week every year in solitude. Oh, glorious, glorious days. Sadly, his mother moved here (sadly in more ways than one), so the week long marital vacations came to an end. Sigh. I love him deeply, I enjoy spending time with him, but sometimes I just want to be alone for a protracted period of time.Originally Posted by prhoshay;2944437;
I've offered many a time to go on a vacation by myself so he could have the house to himself for a week, but for some reason he doesn't want me to go. Fine by me - I don't really want to take a bus to, say, Nova Scotia by myself, but I'm a little surprised that he wouldn't want me out of his life for at least a brief period, unlike the rest of humanity.
