I Just Want to Be Alone

If you have been reading this blog the past few weeks, you know how much I like my husband. I’ve been pretty sentimental lately, which is even starting to annoy me. I feel like now is a good time to remind you all that while I dig him the most, my husband can be super irritating sometimes. I’m not ready to trade him in or anything, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows up in here.

If you are in a relationship, I’m sure you understand. The people we love the most are the ones who can crawl under our skin easily. I appreciate the man I chose to build a life with, but I do not appreciate the way his teeth touch his fork or how he puts the contents of his pockets on the kitchen counter in a pile that grows and grows until the tower of receipts and loose change threatens to kill us.

I know he gets it. The complaints he has logged against me are lengthy, and mostly warranted. That’s the thing about being in a safe and strong relationship. We can dislike the way the other does things and it won’t impact our love. Thank the Lord, because my faults are not few and far between, and neither are his.

This topic is so common, so prevalent, it could fill a book.

And now it does!

I Just Want to Be Alone, the second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series is here!

Don’t get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It’s just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on the floor on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?

  1. One of the main reasons I contributed to this book is so we can do another book signing together and hopefully watch other people’s kids again. GAWD that was fun. Love you girl, mean it. xo DG

    1. We are outstanding when it comes to having fun together and signing books, but we are truly terrible at watching other people’s kids. Unless we’re watching them run away to the neighbor’s house. Then we’re amazing. Love your face and I’m so glad we helped birth another book together.
