Home Alone

Home alone.  (clutching my face and screaming AAAHHHH!)

I was home alone today for 2 glorious hours.  I cannot remember when that happened last, well, unless I was sick and didn't realize I was home alone.

Here's what I didn't do:

  • I didn't do laundry- I purposely put away our laundry yesterday to avoid the temptation.
  • I didn't do dishes- I did that before they left this morning.
  • I didn't cook lunch for everyone- I did that before they left this morning.
  • I didn't clean or pick up anything.
  • I didn't grade anyone's math sitting on the dining room table.
  • I didn't entertain my dog. (I made JP put him outside on the way out the door)
Here's what I did do:

  • Listened to my playlist very loud without competing with anyone else's music/talking/playing/barking.
  • I put English Muffins in the bread machine.
  • Sat down to eat banana raisin bread with real butter and hot blueberry tea. ( and I didn't share with anyone)
  • I searched out some sandwich bread recipes.
  • I worked on a Christmas craft post I'll be submitting.
  • I put my kids' new school picture in a frame.
  • Read my Bible.
Well, my two hours went by fast, but it was very nice!  I turned down my music and put lunch in the oven and hear the key in the door!

  1. Nice! Sounds like you made your two hours really count! I probably wouldn't have gotten past sitting and eating. :)

  2. Usually I don't either...I just made a plan this time. JP told me when he got home that I needed to learn to relax. But although I wore myself out, it was in a way relaxing.
