Question Weekend Getaway without him

Hey ladies,

I was at work today and my co-workers were planning a weekend getaway to Miami and they invited me along as it does get stressful. I know my man would tell me to go and have fun (he trust me so no worries there) but he would just tell me to make sure my money and everything is in order. I plan on booking the flight on Wednesday when we hopefully get our big bonus at work (this place can be so stressful at times). His been locked up for 6 months now and a part of me feels bad because we always say we wanted to go to miami together but i am going with other people first.

My question to you ladies is have you ever taken a weekend getaway while your man is locked up? How did he feel? Did you feel awkard knowing he was locked up?

Give me your feedback and tell me your side of the story.

I do it all the time! My husband is constantly telling me to go and have an awesome time and then share it with him through our letters so that he will feel as though he went there with me. I take pictures of the places I go as well as the people I go with to help him visualize where I was.

Have an awesome time!!!!

Have a wonderful time, take a million pictures (make sure to have your friends take a few of you in a swimsuit holding some ornate umbrella drink), send him 2 postcards a day... and don't think of it as "going without him", think of it as a "scouting expedition"... now you'll know a little bit when the two of you go together.

me and my man (plus the kids) were planning a trip to disney world and three days before we were scheduled to leave is when he got locked up. at first i wasn't going to go but he told me that i had to. To make a long story short i went and had the time of my life. I also took 300 plus pictures so he was able to visualize some of it.

Absolutely - GO! You have to have a life out here; you will strangle and die if you don't, and it will make the relationship much harder. Just share everything you do with him, by letter, by card, by phone, whatever.

Default I made up my mind..

Thanks ladies for all of your feedback. I have made up my mind and if all goes well, I will be booking my ticket tomorrow. All of you are absolutely right. I can share everything with him and that will take his mind off of all the bull that is happening around him.

It will make him more excited to go when he finally comes home.

I usually go up to Northern Arizona one weekend out of the month to see my dad, its basically a get away for me, go and relax, hit the casino up there, spend time with dad and all. Pooky encourages me all the time to get out and relax and take some ME time. He is always pushing that one me.

How did he feel? Lonely, cause he knew I was further away from him

Did I feel awkward? Of course but If I don't take care of me I cant take care of him

I won an award through my job and the award ceremony was in Cabo San Lucas Mexico and was a 4 night/4 day all expenses paid trip... it was a great time, but with every experience, there was a piece of me missing... him. Honestly, I can't imagine taking much of a "vacation" until he get's home. Maybe a little something here or there, but it's just not the same without him. But you are right, this life is stressfull... have a wonderful time!
