Yesterday they finally finished recording! Lately, he has been so busy with completing their album that I’ve had to go to a couple of friend and family things on my own. I have also spent a lot of time on my own at home. To be honest at times I can feel really lonely and plain bored at home by myself. It just goes to show that there is no way I could ever become a stay at home mom, that’s for sure.
It’s a weird adjustment when your other half is busy and you have to start going to things as a singleton. I found myself this past weekend really missing my other half. All of our friends are now married and so when I go to birthday parties or family dinners it can be a little weird that he isn’t there. But I guess this is what the life of a musician’s wife is, learning how to be independent again. I know for some ladies, this isn’t a big deal at all and it really isn’t for me either but it is an adjustment. I have been with my amazing man for nine years. Before marriage I was an independent woman but after being married for four and a half years I got use to always going to social gatherings as the Mr. and Mrs.
This summer I have learned a lot about what it takes to be a musician’s wife. It is true from the other blogs I have read, you have to learn to be independent. You have to be okay with doing things without your other half. You have to be okay with being a singleton sometimes. This summer I have definitely changed from the wife I use to be when he was in his old band. I was the wife that didn’t have that understanding yet of what it takes. Now I get it and I know what it takes and what it will take in the future.
