Home Alone

Sometimes I don't know whether to be thrilled or sad that I'm home alone. I suppose I could make my own plans to go somewhere, but frankly, I do like being home, and even, home alone. Nick wanted to go to his friend's house so Marty took him over before going out to a city about 45 minutes away in order to meet up with some friends for photography. Marty will be gone most of the afternoon and Nick probably until after a youth group meeting this evening at the church near his friend's house. He's been enjoying going to the meetings lately.

I'd be more pleased with myself being home alone, if I could focus on a single thing and accomplish getting it done or at least making significant progress. Our home is 'lived in' and more often than not looks rather frazzled with clutter and stuff. And since our vacation in July and my subsequent health issues (the appendectomy and the fall injuring my wrist) it seems things are in greater disarray than normal and I'm a bit overwhelmed as to where to start, and when I have attempted to start, I've gotten side-tracked and seeming to not make any headway at all!! Maybe what I need is a good list of things that need to be done daily, and then a list of other things that need to be done but have no real deadline. Do I see Jan. 1st on the not so distant horizon....yeah, but I never make New Year's Resolutions...they always get broken!

  1. I understand completely -- I enjoy my home alone time. I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues, too -- and again, feel empathy! I know that when I'm able, I'm going to have to spend a week or two putting things back where they belong. I best not think about it yet, though! :)
