Stages of Reactions When Your Spouse / Partner Takes a Trip

  1. Day 1
    Yay. I get to watch what I want. I get to listen to what I want. I get to have a popcorn and wine dinner
  2. Day 2
    This is fun, but I really should eat right. Still, I can watch Pride & Prejudice for the thousandth time
  3. Day 3
    Hummm -- another evening to myself. Maybe I should be productive . . . or not. Women's night out??
  4. Day 4
    Crap. I have to do all the chores by myself. Why isn't he around to help?
  5. Day 5
    Okay, enough already. I miss his company
  6. Day 6
    Yay. He's home!
