The family decided to abandon me for two weeks and journey to the South. I remain here guarding the home from whatever mischief might arise (which, let’s be honest, considering I live in the Goshen. could be any number of things).
After five days, let me observify:
- I never really enjoyed being single when I was single. It’s even worse being single when I’m married.
- Do you think my mother would be annoyed if I brought her my laundry?
- This is the longest I’ve gone without being around the Gem. Sad. (Don’t worry, I have tissues right here).
- I eat a lot of junk food when the Mrs. is around. Double that when she’s gone.
On a positive note, there is something exciting about being free to do
whatever I want. (Actually, the excitement wore off about three and
half days ago, but it was nice while it lasted).
still trying to figure out what I’m going to do for meals for the next
nine days. I mean, I love McDonald’s and all, but three times a day for

around, I think he’s more than content giving up the occasional bedtime
- No but really, what do I do if my mom won’t do my laundry?
Another observation: This Mrs. thinks I don’t like to be told what to
do, which is true on the surface. However, this week I’ve realized that
deep down I do like to be told what to do, otherwise I just walk around
the house eating candy and wondering what I should do next.
- I sure do miss them.
