Aloneness can be so nice at times. Enjoy the foods you like. And don't wait until the day before SO is supposed to be home before cleaning - do it a day earlier. What would you do if she came home a day early?
I ain't coming over to help clean! I hardly do it at home.
Once we moved to MA Himself didn't travel for business anymore. I liked having him gone a week here and three days there. He really was home more than he was gone, but it was nice to cook for just me on occasion. Now he's around always. Love him lots, but love him from a distance more at times.
