8 things you can do to help you miss your significant other less when they travel

  1. Go ahead and get that not necessarily shameful or dirty, but certainly “intimate” grooming ritual out of the way. As in, get on those toenails pronto. Don’t even really worry about sweeping them up because, pssht, whateva, can I just LIVE?! And naturally-coifed black beauties, wash/protective-style your hair for the entire three-and-a-half hours the process takes, guilt-free. And while you’re at it, see #2.
  2. Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime television shows or movies that your other does not enjoy. Fall asleep in front of the TV. TV loves you, baby.

But G. was lucky enough to get a gift certificate to use at Hill & Dale, so we decided to be indulgent and I can safely say it was one of the best decisions we have ever made, either jointly or individually.
