Finding it hard as well to miss anything. Hired a cleaning guy and crew, a yard guy and crew for the hard stuff and a handyman for all the little things that need to be fixed.
As my friend said: "you are paying, but now you are actually getting something in return."

Maybe I miss having an adult male in the house for heavy lifting, but even then, we were pretty evenly matched. It's more that I sometimes need a second person to help (like when putting a window AC unit in). Fortunately, I have strong brothers who are willing to come out a couple times a year to help me if I feed them.
STBX couldn't do anything in terms of fixing or other house-related chores any better than I could. I can call the fix-it guys and drop the car at the shop as competently as he can!

I miss having a husband.
Just not the husband I had.

I miss having someone with whom I can share really great news, in detail.
Of course, I didn't have that for most of my marriage since he'd always put me down and minimize anything good compared to him, but that is one thing I look forward to in my next relationship.
Until then, I just journal.
Me: BW, divorced, now fabulous and happy!
Married: 11 years, no kids

..not so much a husband as just another set of hands...when I need to zip up the back of my dress. Nothing worse than when the kids are gone, I am in a rush and I can't get the zipper past my bra-line (damn, should have stuck with yoga!)
I end up having to run (half naked) across the street to my widowed neighbor and hope she is home to finish dressing me.
Don't waste your whole life trying to get back what was taken away.

I am in the box-lifting, jar-opening camp. I am in an apartment instead of a rental house purposely so I don't have to worry about lawns.
I also miss a husband (although not necessarily *my* husband) when DS6 loses his shit. He is over 4 feet tall and 50 lbs.

If mine had acted like a husband maybe I would have missed having one. I am told though, there are plenty of good men out there, so maybe I will be lucky enough to find a good man so I know what I was missing.
