  • Oh no! I hate being alone, but when it happens I try to take advantage by getting in a nice bubble bath and pampering myself in peace and quiet. :) Try to enjoy!

  • I used to keep the tv on till I couldn't stay awake any more. I also make sure the house is locked up tight. It'll be ok. Sometimes I get like that when my dh goes to work at 5 am and it's still dark out. I either go back to sleep or stay up and watch a movie.

  • I read until I can't stay awake anymore. A friend of mind sleeps on the sofa when her husband goes out of town. I also keep my cell phone on and by my side. And I have a can of hornet spray (sprays a distance) by the bed. I sleep pretty well.

  • With my husband going on so many deployments and TDYs, I have a hard time sleeping when he's beside me!

    Five days isn't very long. Just think, it'll be over before you know it! *Hugs* and try to enjoy yourself and not miss him too much ;)

  • Watch some good movies. Comedys. Keep the tv on. Eat what you want. Take a nice bath. Or just veg in front of the tv til you fall asleep.
