I am home alone today- for the whole day! You know how long it’s been since I have been in my own home, alone? Years! I’m serious. Since the pandemic hit definitely. I almost haven’t known what to do with myself today – almost. I am on no one’s schedule but my own. I can eat junk and no one will see me, or I can skip meals and no one is the wiser. Binge Netflix all day? Yep. No fear of feeling guilty for being lazy because there’s no one here but me! I love it!
And tomorrow I get another day of being home alone! My youngest is gone on a band trip until late Sunday night and my husband has to work this weekend, sooo, it’s all me. Aaahhh. It has been quite the treat. I did a little cleaning in my flower beds, a little shopping, a whole lot of music on my airpods. Don’t have to worry about not hearing anyone because it’s just me. Being home alone for me is another form of self care.
The reality is that come August, I am going to have more days home alone than I will probably want. Is that even possible? Our last son leaves for college in August and we will be empty nesters. I am kind of excited and ready for this phase of life, but I am also worried that it will seem lonely. I’m pretty good at filling my time, and I certainly like being alone so I feel fairly confident that it will be ok. It will still be an adjustment. However, all 3 boys are within a few hours time in the car so I can always go see them if I need to.
Enjoy the upcoming spring weather. I am on spring break this next week and I hope to get some post published so that I can catch up!
Until next time,
