Ok...I knew the deal when I married my wife almost 15 years ago that if I didn't join in with her "quality of life" that I would be left behind....:yes:

Now I don't mind looking at her from behind ;) but I do like to "communicate" with her from time to time....:gossip:

there's that 4-letter man word...communicate....HEY! :mad: I do.....

now where was I....:chin:

Oh yeah....

Anyway since we married I have done many a :running: 5K....walked a bazillion miles with her and the dogs around the neighborhood, the :beach:beach and down and back to :coffee2: Starbucks...sometimes around :bunny2: Bunny Poo park when we have time...

and she has always done stretching :exercise: exercises and :yoga: yoga at home or the gym....but...

about a year ago she got her :yoga: teaching degree :yoga:

something that I am very proud of her for :hug: she spent many days and hours earning it :carrot:

She teaches 2 classes at church of around 20 people....last Friday she taught a class at one of the local yoga studios and brought in 14 people at 5:30....including my ex-wife :)

I happened to do some work for the studio owner on Monday and she said she was amazed at how many Angie brought in for a Friday night...

so...bottom line...Friday night was :love: date night :love: (and I was well taken care of over the week-end :carrot:)...

but here it is Tuesday night...her night to cook :chef: and I sit here :hungry: hungry as all get out and no dinner in sight....:no:

EDIT ~ I forgot to mention she is training for a 10K she is going to run with my daughter/her step-d for a mother/daughter run....and she is doing a 10K mud run with my daughter and our daughter in law in a few months...which means more alone :( time for me :(

Poor Gary....;)

What's a yoga widower to do? Are any of you widows/widowers? Do any of you have a similar :( sad story? ;)

Well when I was first married I was a volleyball widow...and funny thing that is just what I called it! My dh was a volleyball official or referee and with the start of Labor Day he was gone every Tuesday and Thursday and then every weekend for tournaments! BUT as the story goes,,,my dh got older and his knees couldn't handle it anymore... and I am NO longer a volleyball widow!

I'm a yoga widow. The boyfriend really got into it over the last couple of months. I enjoy it, but because of my class schedule go at different times. I also I'm not nearly as dedicated about it as he is. I use my free time to eat food he doesn't like, and watch TV shows that he hates. But I miss him :(. Wish we could go together, but until then I remain a widow.

LOL...I love it gals....

I do enjoy my "me" time too!

You all know I am very proud of my wife...who by the way came home after her yoga class...brought a rotisserie chicken (I had beans, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, cheese and onion ready) for soft chicken tacos...then off to church for a women's meeting....

gave me time to catch up with my son and daughter by way of text/phone calls....

~that's food sounded delightful by the way~YUMMY!

That was the "fast food" for my family when the kids were here and we had track meets/cross country races/tennis/soccer matches/basketball/softball/baseball games/church youth group/scouts/dance...back to school/orientations....LIFE!

We always had cheese/tomatoes/lettuce/onions/beans-re fried-pinto-black/salsa/tortillas corn-flour/sour cream/avocados on hand....

that way at anytime we could pick up a rotisserie chicken or fry up some hamburger or turkey and have TACOS....or BURRITOS...or TOSTADAS...quick!

and who doesn't like that!

Oh hunny I hear you. Oh boy do I ever.
Let me tell you, being ignored for a computer game hurts sometimes.

So I have made him a Swimming Widower! hah!
Sometimes he doesn't even get dinner before I go. He knows how to use the microwave. lol
Fair play right?
