Single for a Weekend!

Well, when I heard the hubby was going to Denver for a business trip, I started making lists. Now most folks would be giddy over the aspect of: nights out with friends, hours of shopping, restaurants to sample. Not me. I was giddy over the aspect of having the house all to myself. Now don't get me wrong. I love, love my husband, but I have never lived alone, and so when I am offered 3 full days of alone, only me, okay maybe the cat, time, I do my happy dance and pull out the paper and pen. First on the list? A trip to the store for some food favorites that do not have to be cooked! A treat or two. A pampering session with my hair dresser, with the result of a shorter sassier hair-do, which goes so well with my present state of mind. Add a new series that I just received from Netflix. "The Buccaneer's!" adapted from the Edith Wharton book. What my hubby would definitely call a chick flick and would definitely not want to see. I sprinkled in some much needed little chores that have been nagging me for some time and it feels so good to have them finally done. I ate only when I felt like it, went to bed later than usual (Oooo, I am such a renegade!...LOL) and woke early with the whole day ahead of me. As I write, the soundtrack from "When Harry met Sally" is blasting away and it is urging me to come and vacuum, before I settle down on the couch, Garlic bagel in hand to watch some great football. Oh, it is going to be such a lovely day! Always, Kit

Sometimes it's just great to have some time to yourself. I think we all need it. I love your Halloweenie blog. Diane

Hi Kit, oooh, your days alone sound just great!!! I love Jack too, but cherish some of the days when it is just ME and Tessy to do whatever I want, whenever I want, and eat whatever I want!!! Sounds like you had a fabulous time... can't wait to see your new "sassy do"!... xoxo Julie Marie

what bliss! I understand completely! That is why I like my Mondays off work so much - a few hours completely to myself! Selfish? no way! We all need time to be ourselves.
I hope you enjoyed your 3 days. Have a wonderful week.

I'm sure it was a lovely, indulgent time! We all need time to be alone in our own home. I've been longing to see The Buccaneers - one of these days!
