Late-night ramblings of a married 22 year old without a husband.

When I had roommates, an evening with the apartment to myself was almost unheard of, and always cherished. Turns out being alone is overrated. Ben and I spend plenty of time apart. Everyday we’re apart for work or school, about a weekend a month one of us is off galavanting for a wedding, a school trip, or a family visit.

Confession: I was excited for these two weeks by myself in the apartment before Cincinnati. I’d have time to see all the people I wanted – tie up loose ends, you know? 
Well, after a week by myself I am attempting to figure how fast I can clean this apartment after the movers come to pass checkouts. Anyone in Provo who wants to help, I’ll buy you icecream šŸ˜› 
Oh and Ben started his new job in Cincy – and he loves it. And I love that he loves it. And wish that I could be there when he got home from work his first week. 
I also wish that all my professors took after the one who cancelled our final exam. 
But, as much as I dislike being away from Ben for long periods of time, its almost worth it just to get to see him for the first time in a long while. That rush when he kissed me those first few weeks of dating comes right back, and the little things become exciting again. I remember when a successful Friday night was an 1:3 ratio of rock climbing to kissing. Good times šŸ˜‰

I’m off to dominate my last two finals today, finish up a few papers, and get the last of my stuff packed for these movers get here.

P.S. Did you enter yesterday’s giveaway? Its my favorite yet. 


  1. Being apart is not fun…I have never been away from my husband for more than twenty-four hours since we began dating.

  2. i love cleaning, i will help!
    text me or something.
    lucky that you have movers.
    thats really nice.


  3. I can't believe how fast time seems to be going, I feel like you just announced that you were moving! Hopefully the next week without Ben will go just as fast and you'll be back by his side before you know it and listening to his stories in person!

  4. Being apart can be a great reminder of how great it is when you're together. I always love when I get that giddy feeling after not seeing my hubby for awhile. Good luck with finals! Love your blog šŸ™‚
