For 15 years or so I lived alone. I liked living alone. I wondered how well it would work - after all those years of bachelorette living - to actually live with someone again.
Yesterday W had to be out of the house by 8:30 and wouldn't be home till sometime after dinner (it turned out to be 11:30 p.m.) I had planned my day.... wow a whole day of "freedom".
Yeah right........... so before W had even left I got this lump in my stomach - alone for hours....... alone... home alone.
I decided the best thing to do was get busy - as his car pulled out of the driveway. So I vacuumed the house - got dressed - and went shopping. (yeah well shopping may not have been the best plan to fill my day seeing how much I HATE it....... but I did have stuff to buy)
I surprised myself by purchasing an outfit that is SO not me - but hey maybe I am getting adventuresome in my old age. ummmmmmmmm how to describe it..... I bought black leather-like leggings that actually fit quite nicely. Then I found a black see-through long shirt with leather-like collar and cuffs to match. I now have an outfit to wear to a party we are going to on Saturday!
Oh and I bought the necessary items - the ones actually on the shopping list as well - a pair of black dress pants and a pair of grey ones. and a new bra. (are you all excited ?? wasn't that fun??!!! cheeky grin)
Then I came home. It was 1:00 p.m.
What to do with the rest of my day..................
So like a kid left alone to their own devices.. I started playing with nail polish - creating fashion statements?? on my nails. I tried painting them all white and adding black ghost faces. They looked like white nails with polka dots........ then I tried white nails with black stripes. Problem was the stripes were different widths - and I couldn't seem to control that.
Finally I settled on half the nail white and half the nail black..... which sorta kinda worked. But by that point I was bored with painting my nails - AND - more importantly - my nails were drying out from all the nail polisher remover!! So black and white nails it is.............
Then I had a lonely dinner............ watched the football game on W's big television (now that was nice!!) talked to youngest daughter... fought to keep my eyes open.......... until W finally arrived home at 11:30.
and then I was no longer home alone - and all was right with the world again!!
