Tomorrow Beau leaves for his bachelor party cruise [[copy cat!]] and although I will miss him like craaaazy...I'm happy for him to spend 5 days cruising the deep blue sea with 9 of his best friends. The rowdiest of best friends, that is.
Even though I know I'll have a difficult time going to bed by myself, I know it's important for any healthy couple to spend time away from one another. (Sidenote-it's amazing how quick you get used to falling asleep next to someone every night.)
Did we agree on a phone call or single text message? No. We didn't do it for mine so I don't want to put any "rules" on him. He did send a few sweet texts to me while I was on my bachelorette cruise and I ended up calling him 2 or 3 times (which may or may not have cost me an extra $30 on our cell phone bill) but I don't want him to feel obligated to call me.
I've had a lot of people tell me I'm absolutely nuts about "letting" Beau go on a cruise for his bachelor party during spring break. Well guess what? A) I'm not "letting" him go. He wants to go and I'm not going to be the one to tell him no and B) I'm not "nuts". I'm just secure in our relationship, who we are and what we have. I think girls are absolutely out of their minds for wanting to have a joint bachelor/bachelorette party. really?? Do you not trust your significant other that much to the point that you have to be there for his bachelor party?? Maybe it's just me but I would never want to make Beau feel like I needed to babysit him at his own bachelor party. He's a grown man and can make his own decisions. The last thing he needs is a naggy bachelorette up his ass.
((stephanie-you can now step down from your soap box))
Anyways-don't you worry about me...me and all the wives/girlfriends of the bachelor party attendees will be soakin' up the sun on the riverbanks of the good ol' Frio River, where the weather's always warm and the drinks are always flowin'! Can I get a hell ya?!
PS-can you tell I'm totally on weekend mode and it's only Wednesday night?? ;)
