Am I A Bad Girlfriend?
It's that time of year. Baseball season. It's a time of year where any time spent with my honey is few and far between as most of his time is spent at the field, whether it be practicing or playing games. This weekend kicked off the baseball season with the team traveling to somewhere far warmer and sunnier than here- San Diego, CA. Since I am new at my job I was unable to take vacation time off and therefore held down the fort here in Kentucky. Was I bummed that I couldn't go? Yes, very. Did I miss him and my friends that traveled with the team while they were gone? So much. Did I have a few moments of jealousy that I wasn't there too? I'll admit that I did. Did I get bored? Ummm, just for like 5 minutes.
Being someone that was mostly single during my early 20's I have gotten used to, and actually didn't hate the independent, single-lady lifestyle. I did what I wanted whenever I wanted. I watched whatever I wanted to on TV. I read whenever I felt like it. And, the biggest adjustment of all-- I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted! Living with someone else other than my old girl roommates has been a learning experience, and for me the biggest adjustment has been meals. Before, I never had to consider that what I wanted to eat might not be what someone else wants to eat. Now, I would feel a little bit guilty if I made some food and didn't offer any to my honey. With girl roommates you just kind of fend for yourself, and if you're feeling super nice and generous you would sometimes offer to share with your roomies.
Being the cook in the house, I didn't really need to consider if someone else was hungry until now. This is different though. Guys eat a lot! We aren't always hungry at the same time or for the same thing, and his cravings and favorites aren't always the same as mine. So, this weekend was kind of fun in the fact that I ate like a single lady again. One night I had a salad from Trader Joe's and it was SO good. It was just enough for me, and I had no dishes to do afterwards! The next night I had the weirdest combination of all-- scrambled eggs loaded with veggies, a side of fruit, and a glass (or two) of red wine. What?! Sounds like an odd combination, but my heart was happy as could be. Being someone that loves breakfast at all times of the day I also had French Toast for supper two nights in a row. It. Was. Wonderful.
With all that said, does that make me a bad girlfriend? I vote no. I think that is what makes us a good pair. I'm used to being independent and sometimes enjoy some solo time at home, and with a coach's schedule I'm not sure if they could have their "person" be any other way. Now, has the six days of solo time gotten a bit long? Yup! I am ready for some company in this house. And, I'm ready to start making some yummy meals for someone more than myself too. We'll probably do some catching up about the trip over a big bowl of my guy's favorite, and something that I am happy to make, Chili. I am so excited for the good food and even better company!

I think I would be the same way! It is so nice that you are independent and enjoy some alone time. Any career in sports has huge variables in the amount of free time. (Another reason P.J. is lucky to have you!) Don't let him off the hook as far as cooking goes, just because I didn't teach him much of that :) It's never too late to add to his repertoire of meals he can make for you both! Maybe after the baseball season.....haha. Hope your snowstorm melts soon!!

He did make breakfast the other day, so there's some potential! Once the snow melts and we can get the grill out, then he will be in his cooking comfort zone! :)
