Homecoming

Leland gets home at noon today and I am so excited. We haven't really been able to talk all week because he has been so busy, and I miss my best friend. And I miss having a man in the house.

I have never lived alone. I moved out of my parents house and into the house I share with Leland. I think because I have never lived alone I now get a little nervous being at home alone when he is out of town. I know, call me crazy (you wouldn't be the first), but when I am spending a significant amount of time at home alone I feel like there is a large neon sign in the front yard telling murderers and rapists that there is a woman alone in the house.

This is why I got a dog. Bacchus has been doing a great job protecting me this week, though it turns out I really didn't need protecting. Every night he would pace the hallway for a while before he went to his closet to sleep. He would stand at the hallway window and growl, what he was growling at I have no idea. But since he never does this when Leland is home, it was actually making me nervous. I thought there might actually be someone outside, drawn in by the large neon sign.

I spent my week working, cleaning and taking walks with the dog. I ate healthy and took care of myself and Leland will be coming home today to a (finally!) healthy wife.

You have sex with your husband?!?!?!

So weird.

The Step In Mom. . . said...

What a horrible person you are! Some people are just ridiculous. I think your challenge is a great idea, not to mention they say having sex frequently with your spouse helps keep you guys connected ect.

I feel the same way being home alone. I moved from my parents and in with Hubby. It doesn't help that I have an over active imagination either....

michelleFFTL said...

i'm exactly the same when im home alone. i feel like whenever the lights are on and i stand in front of a window, i'm attracting the murderers and rapists even more hah.
but at least you have a big dog to take care of you.. my dog is tiny :p

and as for the person that leaves nasty comments about you.. they really must be quite pathetic ha.

Ian said...

All ready to talk about something else and then I read that someone called you a whore?

WHO

Email me the link, I need to see this shit and straighten this out.

Dollface said...

I cant believe they called you that, thats so wrong!!! Im sorry... Im glad he is coming home today though, xxxooo

The Redheaded Stepchild said...

I'm glad your man is coming home. As for the rude comment...WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE SEX & ENJOY IT WITH OUR HUSBAND????? I'm sooo going to hell. Damn it all.

;)

MommyLovesStilettos said...

Someone called you a whore? WOW. People are so stupid. Whoever it was - she was probably just jealous of your sex life :)

Aphrodite's Mortal Friend (ME) said...

Oh please- whomever left that comment is probably celebate NOT by choice! Hey- Happy Friday Follow- Stop by my place when you can :-)

Much More Than Mommy said...

So happy to hear you're healthy, so happy to hear he's home, and happy you have a good guard dog! When The Husband is out of town, I have a Yorkie to protect me... Yeah. (And a kick butt alarm system.)

As for the ugly comment... Well, if that's the case, I guess I'm a whore too! OH NO! I HAVE SEX WITH MY HUSBAND! And I'm Baptist even!!!!

TheSingleGirl said...

Yay! You survived!

And, sweets...you know YOU weren't being called a whore, right? The person who left that comment on the blog in question was just making a funny that you took personally because it SEEMED to line up with your last post. The person who left that comment didn't even read YOUR blog, it was just an unfortunate coinky-dink. I can see how you would think it was directed at you. It totally wasn't. She was just trying her hand at a crude joke in relation to the post she commented on.

Does that make sense? I wanted to clear that up for ya. Le Dramaz gives me much anxiety, internet or not. I really wanted to stay out because I'm not personally involved, but I ain't gonna let you think you got called a whore.

Go read the comments again. See how everyone was making fun because the post was about TMI? That's what happened.

randomblogette said...

I cannot believe that someone called you a whore because you have sex with your husband. I think that if more people had sex more often they would be so much happier (preferably monogamous sex but whatevs). You know that bitch who left that comment probably hasn't gotten laid in forever and is just jealous. I will go and get em for you! I HEART You too!

On an other note, I have never lived alone either. I went from my parents' house to a sorority house (don't judge) to an apartment with a roommate to living with my man after a month of dating. I don't know if I could ever live alone. Hopefully I will never have to worry about that!

Elle said...

I have lived alone before, and I still get a little freaked out beign home alone when hubs is out of town. My guard dogs are a Pug and a Boston Terrier, so yeah...

It doesn't help that I freak myself out by watching all of those Forensic Evidence type shows on court TV. Then, I dream that I'm a victim in the show, and I try to remember what I need to do to collect evidence for the investigators so that they can solve my murder. Ummmm....so, I guess I'm kinda not smart about being home alone! LOL

From one hobag (yeah...I have the sex with my husband too) to another, my jaw is on the floor over the fact that someone called you such an awful thing, and on someone else's blog?! Since this person didn't even have the nerve to say it to your face (well, your blog at least), don't let it bother you. I know it's hard not to take it personally, but it's just not worth giving that awful person so much power over you.

heartinhand said...

I'm home alone so much thanks to night shifts. Tazzy always gets hyper vigilant when the hubby isn't home, it drives me nuts!

So a commenter made this comment on someone else's blog? Wow, that's real brave...

North West London Girl said...

Hi there, you may think being a Brit might mean I'm a little prudish, I think that may be how Brits are seen abroad. Well not in my house babe. I completely adore sex and I talk about it all the time with my girlfriends, and handsome husband and I get it in whenever and wherever we can. I haven't actually read the comments the other person left you - but I think if you don't like something just don't read it anymore. Very glad you popped by and I shall be sure to follow your exciting exploits xx

Little Ms Blogger said...

Someone really left a comment on another blog calling you a slut???? That's insane and rude.

Even if you weren't married and wanted to have sex with a bf or different partners, who cares as long as both parties are protected emotionally and physically.

I'm sorry there are mean people out there. They suck.

Btw...I totally understand the no sleep thing. While hubby is away, I stay up until I can no longer keep eyes open and am up at the crack of dawn.

foxy said...

Okay, first of all, I feel the same way when my hubby is gone and I'm the only one home. Like somehow all the killers out there get a memo telling them where there's an easy target. Maybe the dog was just trying to look mean with his growling - you know, boosting himself up and such.

And, secondly, why the hell would someone be so mean? I'm mad for you about that and will virtually kick their ass if you want me to. Just let me know.

MiMi said...

I'm SO glad you took care of yourself and are doing so well!! :)
Nasty comments are wrong. :(

wines constantly said...

I get paranoid when home alone, too. I tend to leave all the lights on, and the TV, and the radio...ComEd loves me.

Have fun this weekend "catching up" with Leland =)

Amy said...

It's unfortunate that someone called you that. I never understand why people feel the need to attack others in the blogesphere. I've been to several blogs that just weren't for me. But instead of ranting about what I didn't like I just clicked away and stopped visiting.

Pay no attention to the hate spewers, love! Have a great weekend with your husband;)

JenJen said...

Oh sweetie.....

we both know the poor ladies who can't talk/read about sex are simply members of an old, outdated generation. Age is just a number...the mind and internal evolution we each undergo is what makes us grow. These women choose not to grow....which is sad, considering most of them are past the point of no return!

Think about it....it 20 years, us open-minded chicks will still be hott and having regular orgasms and the 50's-like maidens will be wringing their fists about their SS check and Medicare coverage. Poor old dears. I wanna go out with a bang! Literally!

As for the rest of your post....please talk more about sex. Some readers find reality appealing. Thank you.

hurstburst said...

It makes me crazy when people put down other people's blogs. There's no need to spread hate. Calling you a name like that is completely unacceptable. Whomever wrote that should be grateful you are above calling them out. You're handling the situation with a lot of class; I'm not sure I could do the same thing.

Thanks for your comment on my post today; it was so sweet! Enjoy that homecoming! :-)

Gucci Mama said...

Who called you a whore? It's been awhile since I have had an opportunity to cut a bitch.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Say what?!

Someone called you a whore in someone else's comments? For real?

Who does that? No seriously. Who does that. I want to see who they are.

Krista said...

What the heck??? No way... I believe you but... I can't beLIEVE someone would be so rude. :o(

I'm sorry that happened. I don't think you're a whore, I think you're really really lucky. LOL!

I'm glad Leland is home now and glad that nothing bad happened to you while you were alone! :o)

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

first of all, eff the mean people. eff them.

second of all, the dog was prob just growling at spirits, so no biggie.

carma said...

Enjoy your weekend together and try to put all the other crap out of your mind.

Mayra Elisa & Pooh Bear said...

Hi there!! Thanks for stopping by. I'm your newest follower. =)

I want a puppy, do they protect?? hehhee...

As for that stupid rude comment, I'm sorry it happened to you. Was it a 70 year old lady??

Kelly @ The Startup Wife said...

Yikes. Sounds like someone's jealous!

I've never lived alone, either, and I too hate when I'm alone for the night. (Actually, usually I just go stay with my parents!) Your dog sounds like a terrific protector and companion though. :) I have a red-eared slider, which is not quite the same ....

Kate said...

Someone called you a whore that is awful. There seem to be a string of recent mean comments going around actually you aren't alone. Thought I would leave one saying what a great blog you have - hope that helps cancel the negative

Kate xx

RN Mama said...

Have a great weekend! I hope you have lots of lube handy;)

SquirrelQueen said...

Been reading some of your older posts and I like what I've read so far. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

I'll be back later to read more.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

I like living alone..dexter is plenty of company..although he could care less what is going on with lost or the american idol, no matter how much i tell him what's going on.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I've lived on my own before, but I've always had a dog. I love that your dog's name is Bacchus! :)

Glad you're feeling better - have fun 'catching up' this weekend! ;)

Happy Follow Friday! I'm following you now! :)

WhiteSockGirl aka The Fabulous Bitch said...

You have been called a whore? Why? Because you are sleeping with your husband and not someone else?

Interesting,...

Peeps just need to get a life, a sex life that is!

T!nK said...

YAYYY!!!!

I personally feel that is is disgusting and unnatural for a husband and wife to make whoopie as much as they can and enjoy it. I mean, its not SUPPOSED to be fun, and its ONLY so you can further the human race, DUH! Gosh. But I don't hate you, I just hate the sin. Kind of like loving water, but hating the fact that it's wet.

:-P


But for realsies its not just you. I live alone now and I am aways freaking out that there is going to be a zombie uprising or something and I'm just gonna be swarmed by zombies in my apartment.

chubskulit said...

aladdinsane12 said...

i just hate being alone because i don't know how to entertain myself!

i love that the bachman was a guard dog while lee was gone. he is the least intimidating dog ever.

Tracy said...

Glad you have your man back home, I don't like living alone either.

I wanted to tell you that I got the card! Thank you so much! That is the first time I have ever gotten something like that. Husband and I are going to the movies and then enjoying a latte afterwards tonight! Thank you again.

Intense Guy said...

I live alone - and have for many years - and at the moment without a pet too.

No one has murdered me or raped me (yet). I think the neon sign in front of my house is covered with splattered moths and other bugs and dim because of it.

I'm glad Leland is back! Time for you to ... enjoy your companion and the weekend!!!

Mrsblogalot said...

Yeah! healthy and ready to go! Enjoy...ahem...being busy my friend!!!! xoxoM

The Grasshoppa:Triplets Plus Two Momma said...

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

A week without hubby sucks!!!

I love to read your posts and then read your comments...It always makes me laugh!!

I've missed you!!

Jeve (aka John and Steve) said...

Glad he's back and that you have a super protective dog! Looking forward to reading more posts. Good to be back.

kristi said...

I don't like being home overnight or even if hubs has to work late. The kids are here but they are no help!

Eternally Distracted said...

Yay, happy homecoming! You can finally take down that neon sign ;)

Aunt Juicebox said...

Hope you've caught up with your goal! ;)

Traci said...

I totally understand. I have never lived alone either and whenever my husband has to work nights, I check the locks like twelve times. I know that it is completely irrational but I can't help myself!

Thanks for stopping by my place last week. I will be following your adventures.
:-)

He was probably doing it because you were nervous and he was wondering what you were upset about

Holly said...

My dog is always wacky when hubby is out of town...freaks me out. I will admit, I do love it when he goes (because it is not that often). I can stay up late crafting or blogging w/o any complaints!
