When I last checked in, I was going to do a daily update of my “time alone.” Well, after Day 2, the whole rest of the week went by and I never even checked in with you. Turns out… I was so busy I didn’t even have time to be lonely. I hung out with friends, saw Mamma Mia, twice…. and sat around the house and watched a few more movies. (Plus, as I’m up at 4:00 every morning to haul my tired bones downstairs to work, I pretty much have to go to sleep when the street lights come on, so there’s not a lot of night life going on).
And remember those big knitting ambitions? Um… yeah, I got two rows knit on Hanami, not two repeats. Sad, I know. But, I did finish the toe of my sock (even kitchenered since this picture!
So, what was different about being alone? The glaring notables….
Well, I only ran the dishwasher once ALL week, instead of once a day, and that wasn’t even a full load.
The kitchen counter was always clean and dirty-dish-free. The towels were always hang on the towel rod in the bathroom…. and, dum-da-da-da!!!….. the toilet paper was always ON the holder! – not living on the counter with the empty rolls! Just as I always suspected – THEY are the culprits – the messy ones! Documented proof.
Well, truth be told, my smug victory and clean living surfaces are not really as fun as having the family around and I did look forward to them all coming home.
But, I have to admit, it was nice.
