I think one of the things I dislike the most about the long-distance relationship is the adjustment to alone status.
It isn't that I'm lonely --- I'm perfectly happy to be home alone. It is just that there is kind of a shock that happens after he's here and then he's not... that is what I don't like.
If I could flip from "hubby's home" to "happily home alone" status, it would be fine. I just don't like having to make the change, although I should be better at this than I am.
I don't have the adjustment problem when I visit Red State -- because I'm the one coming and going... and when I get home the place doesn't seem empty.
Maybe I just need to put it on the Law & Order channell and pretend he's home...
