    I hate going to bed alone every night.

    I hate sitting in this house day after day watching my husband play his stupid games or watch his movies. I numb myself. I numb myself with mindless online games and Facebook. I have become a vacant shell.

    About 95% of the time Im alone. Meaning without him. Im always with my kids, but not much time with what's supposed to be the, "other half". Amputation please! I guess I should add here that we are past the fixing stage and now we both know we are best apart.
