Things We Won't Tell My Husband: Episode 1

I thought I would start a new column called Things We Won't Tell My Husband. This is all in pure fun because I would tell my husband any of these things if he asked, but for the sake of keeping my life simple and to keep him from worrying, let's just keep these things between us. My husband isn't one to read my blog, so I know my secrets are safe here. Harhar. And let's be honest MILSOs you've probably done more than one of these things during deployment too, right? I know I'm not alone.. 

1. That for the first week he was gone I pretty much drank homemade fresh peach and fresh strawberry milkshakes for meals. I was too stressed to eat real food and they hit the spot.

2. That for a long time after he left I stayed up until four, five or six in the morning working on projects around the house. I couldn't sleep so I figured I might as well get some things done.

3. In the first few months he was gone there were a few days where I never got dressed and didn't leave the house or talk to another living soul (other than via computer). This was before Clementine came to live with me at the beginning of 2013 of course.

4. That I didn't wash his car quite as often as he wanted me to. But I did wash it regularly enough.

5.  That I once made a batch of his favorite chocolate chip cookie dough and ate all the dough over the course of three or four days.

6. That I slept on the couch for at least a month worth of nights, falling asleep with the TV on.

7. That I lost the same 10 pounds four times in the first few months he was gone.

8. That I did throw away a couple of his things, but mostly just things that were way long past their expiration date. Nothing I knew mattered to him. I wouldn't dare do that.

9. How much it totally stresses me out to have to relay to him any kind of bad news or unexpected large financial costs.

10. That sometimes I do not crush the milk cartons before I throw them in the trash, just because I don't have to when he's not here to police that. I've always done that anyway, but it's my little rebellion lately not to on rare occasions because I know no one will be the wiser.

So those are my big confessions. Okay, what do you have to add? What have you done that your husband just doesn't need to know...and keep it in the realms of moral, legal behavior please. Harhar.


  1. Oh gosh there are so many things I have done that he didn't need to know. Goes back to the saying that ignorance is bliss. :)

  2. Whew! I am so glad I am not the only one. lol.


Hearing from you makes my day. Thanks for your comments.
