Home Alone

Good Morning True Campaigners

I haven't forgotten about you, but my post on True-ism: Acceptance will be postponed until next week.

On top of an already (overly) full week, I have done lots of reading and research on a project I am working on right now. Last week I read five non-fiction books.  Whew! I didn't even know I could do such a thing!

Anyway, I hope to have a nice True-ism post next week. So stay tuned.

On another topic, I did something last night that I haven't ever done in my life: I stayed home alone. Like, without my husband, or kids.  

The Mister was out of town this weekend, and the kids were at sleepovers. At first I wasn't sure how I would make it through the afternoon and evening without all my peeps, but you know what? It was actually nice!

I wouldn't want to do it very often, but it was nice to do what I wanted, when I wanted, watching movies I wanted! Plus, I did some cleaning and preparation for the Big Move, and organized a ton of paperwork that must be done before the end of the week.

I made myself a nice dinner-for-one (even though my normal "alone" fare would've been Cheerios and milk) and enjoyed the solitude.

You know what makes being alone so fabulous? Knowing that my family would be home soon!

After a week like last week, and knowing what the next few weeks will look like, I was glad to have 19 hours of time to myself. I feel recharged! I highly recommend it!

I hope you have had a great weekend, and have a terrific start to your week!

La Vida Dulce!

I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be home alone. I'm glad you made the most of your time. Wow, 5 books that is impressive!

Sounds like such a nice evening, only when it isn't the norm! Hope you're getting a lot done as you prepare for the move and it isn't too stressful!

I am so glad you had such wonderful time alone. I so love it when my husband takes the children out for awhile and the house is mine, all mine. It is really nice. I have never done the overnight thing though. I CAN'T believe you read 5 books in ONE WEEK!!! That is amazing. You deserve a gold metal for reading all of that in one week:)
