Thinkin out loud

Woke up extra early today for work. Usually my wife is there getting ready for work to. So i have to wait to use the bathroom. 6:00am to be exact. These days theres no one to take up the bathroom use. Its just me. No kiss good morning , no txt saying what are we eating for dinner? No random txt about anything at all. The void is driving me insane. My how routine is based about my wife n daughter. Now im hanging around work longer theres no reason to get home. Theres nobody there at all...

My husband has shared (when things have gotten bad in our marriage) about me at times not getting out of bed to get ready with him. I have struggled with overwhelmingness of responsibilities in my life. The husband has his own the wife her own. Maybe ask her if things are going ok with her, is she's overwhelmed or struggling in some way? Share that her getting up and ready for work with you means a lot to you. Don't let this create distance between you. I hope you can communicate and find out and maybe share if she has a need and your need for that closeness and in what way.

Nothing like an empty house is there, know exactly how you feel.

Other married men always quipping ""aint you lucky!!no one you've got no one to answer to""go out, and come in whenever you like"".

but the truth is--its not like that at all..coming home to an empty house is a

real pain ,compred to knowing there was always a welcome cheery voice ready

to greet you..

How I miss my wife.. nearly 3 years now,and the pain is still harsh..

nothing you can put on it ,to ease it..
