Today's Topic: What do you do when you're home all alone?
It really depends on for how long and why. If just for an hour or two, than I keep doing whatever I was doing. So usually this means dinking around on the internet. If it's for the whole day, the dollars to donuts I'm sick. In which case, I'm lying on the couch with saltine crackers, gatorade, my laptop, and the tv remote. And more likely than not, I'm asleep under a couple of cats.
On the rare occasion where I am home for a day by myself, with no commitments, and I'm healthy, I tend to over-plan. I always figure I can do it all. Sew AND read AND do blog updates AND bake AND do laundry, and, and, and. I tend to actually do one of those (most likely sewing), plus some cleaning. There is something about being home by myself, during the day, that makes me want to clean. I don't get it either, but I can tell you this--if I wasn't at work most afternoons, our house would be a lot cleaner.
One thing I don't really do is cook. There is something so uninspiring about cooking for one. Instead I tend to just forage for odds and ends. A can of corn? Lunch. A handful of pretzels, an apple, one package of string cheese and some candy? Dinner. When the hubby went out of town for a business trip last summer, I texted him pictures to prove I was eating real food. (I cheated though, we had lots of leftovers for me to live on.)
