Home Alone

I am so rarely alone that it's hard to know what to do with myself.

T is at the Flight of the Conchords concert. Cam only had one ticket, and I figured he would enjoy it immensely. But that lives me at home alone with no car and suddenly all the chores I need to do (thank you notes, dishes) or exercising I could do seem very unappetizing.

Between T and sharing an office at work, the only time I am alone is in the car, and I usually like to be on the phone or have the radio blasting.

It leaves me wondering if I'm shallow or just uninteresting on my own. I already watched a movie and posted on FB. Now I'm tempted to shower and put on my jams, and it's not even 10 pm!

I feel like I should be doing some deep thinking or introspection. Instead I'm bored. And writing boring blog posts. Lucky you!

I hear you loud and clear, L. Even though I have SOOOO much that I should be doing, sometimes I just sit and feel blah. And go to bed at 9:45. dh and I didn't even spend every waking minute hanging out before he left, but I just can't seem to organize my thoughts enough to decide what I feel like doing when I have leisure time. So every night it's the same routine: mini eclairs, Frasier (2 episodes), bath, Newsweek, scriptures, prayer, bed. Probably more boring than you. At least you have Rock Band 2.

I do it too! I've never been good about sitting still or being content with alone time. I always feel like I need some kind of hobby or need to try some kind of craft - something I'm passionate about doing so that I can be productive. Maybe we're just too type a for our own good. Last night after the OC and while Tom was at a meeting I caught up on TiVo'ed shows. Guess I am pretty boring too! :)
