  • Have a glass of wine, catch up on some YOU time. Or read a book. Go to bed early. Miss him

  • celebrate! stock up on AA's! walk around naked without being assumed you want sex! throw your clothes/shoes on the floor! eat all the ice cream! watch HGTV or america top model!
    in other words, do whatever the heck you want!!

    then, you'll be able to give him the homecoming you want.

  • Just soak every minute up and when he comes back in a week you will be so happy that it will be just you all just got together again. I would sleep watch whatever I wanted and read a book clean my house and hae a girls night also. Have fun and enjoy yourself.

  • My husband was gone for two days and it drove me insane. We would have phone sex when he could other then that I just tried to stay busy and stay out of the house.

  • Stay busy, try to get stuff done and spend time with yourself and maybe some friends.

    It IS just a week.

  • kissOMIGoodness...honey it is not the end of the world. lol I suggest YOU DO YOU so that when he returns home YOU can SHARE with HIM what YOU have LEARNED while he was away. Trust me when I say he may not admit (or maybe he will) but he will appreciate YOU more and YOU might even GIve him a few pointers. :) Not to mention the fact, absence makes the heart grow fonder; if it is this difficult for you when he is away for a week just imagine all the FONDNESS you will have to catch up on between breaks. ;)

  • Like missinviting said; it's not the end of the world hun. Absence is a good thing to a relationship...of course, I mean short absences. You had a life before you got with your man and you should still be able to stand on your own two feet and have a life without him for a week. It's not a long time. Take this time to catch up on things that you like to do without your man. In order for the relationship to be healthy you need to know that you have another side to that is different from the one glued to him. Have great phone calls with him every day and miss him...just find something else to do with your time that has "ME TIME" written all over it! Good luck!
