Remote Wars

#37

Never having to fight over the TV remote.

No one comes in and says something rude like “OMG you aren’t really watching THIS are you?”

No one picks up the remote during your show, or favorite commercial and changes the channel.

No need to hide the remote or remove the batteries.

It’s all yours!

I could only find the photo, not the place to actually order this adorable, universal remote. But I want one!

Quality

#36

Your quality of life is your own to determine. As the quote below says, no one to lean on, rely on or blame.

I like that the most right now about being single, it is MY life.  All about ME.

I make no apologies to anyone anymore.

I no longer have to make excuses to anyone for who and what I am.

It is my life, and right now it is amazing as I discover who I am beneath all the layers of what others thought I should be.

And I am pretty darn special!

Scheduling Conflicts

#35

Never having to get back to anyone after you chase down your S/O to find out if you are available for parties, showers, movies, whatever it is that needs to be done.

No one bitches because you have to work late, conveniently, on the night of your mother-in-law’s birthday extravaganza…the one that you’d rather have a root canal without the benefit of numbing medications than attend.

It’s YOUR schedule, you fill it in or leave open space as you see fit.

Song Slaughter

#34

Driving down the road, your favorite song comes on.

The S/O changes the channel.

Or worse…

They purposely start singing and CHANGING the lyrics.

They butcher them, purposely, into something insane or obscene.

It sticks in your brain, and every time you hear the song you hear the ‘new’ words in your head.

And they think they are funny.

NOT FUNNY!

Don’t screw with a girl’s favorites.

No S/O means NO song slaughter!

SHOWER

#33

If you are male, there are possibly a grand total of 3 products in the shower: shampoo, soap/body wash, shaving gel/cream.

If you are female…the number is infinite at best!

Because we are in a different mood every morning, and our mood dictates the scent we want to wear, there are countless possibilities for body wash.

We have different shampoo for different reasons as well.

Male or female…if single, the shower is YOUR domain, as much or as few products as you please will grace your tub and shelves.

And it is always just as you like it, NO complaints!

NO this is not our bathroom. It is from Ugly House Photos, click photo to go there!

Coffee – IS Good To The Last Drop

#32

No one takes the last cup of coffee, or ‘almost’ last cup, and leaves a swallow or an empty pot behind.

Nothing sucks like wanting a cup and discovering the last person (and only other person in the house that drinks coffee) took it all and didn’t make more.

Hot coffee, you always know exactly how much is left!

Mood Swings

#31

Mood swings…they suck

You never see it coming, then suddenly “BAAM” you get your head bit off.

Or your significant other is in the kitchen banging stuff around pissed off (do people do that when when are happy? NO!).

You ask, “What’s wrong?”

Them:  “NOTHING”

Yeah whatever dorfwad.

Being single means only dealing with your own moodiness.

(and believe me MEN do have mood swings!)

TIME IS ON MY SIDE

#30

Time is the one thing of value that we cannot make more of, find more of, discover etc.

We’re given one life and a limited amount of time to live it.

Being single means I have more freedom with my time to do things I need or want to do.

Like building my business.

Juggling a relationship (2 since starting Avon) made it hard to devote enough time to keep the relationship and the business growing at the rate necessary.

The business is my money, my livelihood.  Getting it to where it can support me is critical.

I was married 2x, the first just 3 years, the second, 22 years.  I know what kind of time and commitment that takes.

I don’t have time for a friend with benefits let alone a relationship.

Being single….Time…it is all mine and on MY side right now.

#28 & #29 ~ 365 Reasons Being Single Rocks!

DRAMA!

#28

It happens, this thing called Drama.

For some of us simply waking up means there it is, waiting for our eyes to open.

Others…well they have to try harder I suppose.

Drama is going to happen in a relationship.

Be it with friends of his/hers, family, whatever or whoever, drama will occur.

Unless of course you are single.

No drama with his mama….

or sister, or niece, or whoever.

AHHH!

Holidays

#29

Holidays are stressful enough without trying to split them down the middle.

His parents want you at their house, her parents want you around their table.

No one wants to give, especially the couple, when it comes to traditions.

Our family always does….

Thankfully, when it is just you, there is no need to worry about where  you will spend a holiday or if it can be split in such a way as to make everyone (except the two of you) happy.

Toilet Seat

#27

One nice thing about being single, male or female:

The toilet seat is always just as you left it!

Leave it up, it stays put.

Leave it down, and there it will be next time you use the bathroom.

Personally, I prefer to keep the lid closed, keeps cats from drinking from it and from knocking things IN to the commode.
