When I have to empty the vacuum bin after using the vacuum as my bug elimination system.

...that's about it though.

Lol! Pretty funny.

I'm sure I'll miss mine once I get a yard and have to mow it. :)

How poetic. This has so many ways it could be used as a joke.

I miss having a husband when I have to lift something heavy. That's about it.

My INSTANT thought at this title?

NEVER. So I thought about it some more....

Nope, going with NEVER.

I'd rather have a bath in the contents myself.

The ONLY thing I miss is waking up with a lump in my back. Embarrassing but true. Its the only think I'm wistful about. Although I have found its not too difficult to replace - if I can stand the 'complications'.

I guess we can tick off the first item on my list of 'must haves' of my ideal guy eh?

I'm a deep thinker, I am.

Bah! I couldn't even say that; I was the vermin eliminator in our house--especially mice. He was deathly afraid. I'm talking about a man who weighed 270 lbs and stood 6'2". I walked into the room one day and he was standing on a chair--there was a mouse in the lovebird's cage (free-standing on the floor) I don't know who was yelling louder--the X or the bird!

monster is afraid of the dark (6", over 100kgs/220lb). Ironic, no?

There were spirits in our old house that used to 'harass' him. He would have to leave rooms sometimes. He hated them. My babies and I loved them - I felt comforted by their presence. I had forgotten about that until just now.

I miss my husband when I have to scoop the dog poop.

It was the one thing he would do. I hate scooping dog shit.

I hate being the one to kill the spiders/bugs now that it's just me and the kids.

One day the kids found a spider on the stairs. DS4 thought it was pretty cool....and I seriously considered having him kill it and put it in the garbage. I decided to suck it up and kill it myself. haha

I missed XWH#1 because he could fix anything, not that he would mind you, but he had the know how to..

Got STBXWH#2 and he can't do anything that a normal man can do... Came from the city to live with me on my farm, so you can guess what a fiasco this has been. Damnit now I have to learn how to cut the grass again with that weird lawnmower we just had to have. I want a steering wheel, not two levers to try and control. Should be real interesting.

The only thing I could NOT do after he left was back the camper up onto the pad on the side of the house.

After a several hours and few escapades in getting the camper situated. I found a neighbor to do it for me.

That's it. all the yard work, I already knew how to do. All the home repairs, I figured out thanks to youtube. Electrical issues.. took care of them. Vehicles - I did those too. Well made the appts and took the car in.

Last year I sold the camper, this year I got rid of the van that towed the camper. The camper pad is quickly becoming my staging area for my gardening fetish.

Not missing him at all ... just his paycheck.

I miss having someone to hold down the couch while I go to work every day....

That's about it. Everything else, I call my brother or just write a check. So much less drama.

As I recently told my vet, I miss that he would grind the dogs nails weekly, because I can't do it, and I have to take them in constantly. I also miss the poop scooping.

He wasn't much for house repair - we always called someone.

So, I guess that's it.

My ex did the dishes. It was kind of a zen thing for him. He loaded the dishwasher horribly, only removed enough to put in the next batch of dirty dishes, and never scrubbed the scrambled eggs off anything (so it went 20 rounds in the dishwasher).

I hate doing dishes. HATE. I miss having an empty sink at all times. Seriously. That is about it for what I miss. So sad, really.

I don't miss having MY (ex) husband.... just anyone who I could make empty the bug bin would do, really.

I miss having a husband when I have to....


wait a minute....

got it!

filing taxes! don't you get more deductions if you are married??

CharlieFoxtrot posted 4/28/2013 07:34 AM

Good grief, I don't think he ever did a darn thing I could miss... I just have one less person's clothing and dishes to deal with!!

LadyQ posted 4/28/2013 07:46 AM

I'm with Charlie Foxtrot on this one. I'm finding it hard to miss anything. He was deployed a lot and even when he was home, he was not very involved. I'd have to say he spends more time with the kids on his eow now than he ever did. And my momma raised me not to "need" a man. I even change my own oil!

I'd have to go with -when lifting something heavy. But that's it.

I did the housekeeping, yard work when he "couldn't get to it", plumbing, catch n' release of bugs (I'm spider friendly), raising of kids. All of it. Now I just have one less big messy child to watch after.
