    Voted 'not much you can do about it'.

    Accept your fate. Expect nothing from the universe and you shall have all.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    When my wife went to CA to be with her dying mother for a couple months, I survived but it became clear that the single life was not for me.

    I did it for 5 years and it sucked.

    About every other year my wife and my son go to spend a month with her family. Being that I am an introvert, I find the first two weeks of alone time to be blissful. Being able to do what I want. Eat what I want. Go to bed when I want. And silence. Hours and hours of quiet reflection and solitude.

    Then I start to miss them. By the time they get back I am thankful they are back and thankful for the time I got to decompress alone.

    I'm sorry for the living solo thing. I know I couldn't do it. Who would I hug? The kid at Subway? Somebody on the bus?

    You hang in there LP. I can't imagine it's fun.

    I voted "whatever" because this is transitional and things will work out. Yes, it is the suxxor right now, but it won't last and that's what matters. I know you have a goal -- even if you can't yet define it -- but you are working toward it and it will come. Stay the course and get to your goal. It will be worth it for everybody.

    It sucks when you have a family but hopefully it's not a long lasting arrangement. Staring down at an empty nest, I got a cat. Now I have a baby and man lol.

    8 months sucked. Weekends I didn't drive 7 hours home were incredibly long.

    I only did about 30 days last summer without the familly. But I still saw them every weekend. I enjoyed the small break.
