JB is away at Youth Conference this weekend. He doesn't enjoy being away from us and he really hates being alone. I don't know if it's the years of being single, but I kindof like being by myself every once in a while. I feel like I can do my own thing (within reason...I still have children). I can rent a chick flick and watch it TWICE, I can go to bed early or stay up late reading my dear friend, Harry Potter, and I can fix the kids breakfast for dinner and no one asks, "So...is...this what we're having for dinner?"
JB's parents are really funny. When his mom goes on a trip by herself, leaving his dad alone, he will always go buy a big, huge steak to BBQ. When his dad goes on a trip by himself, leaving his mom alone, she always buys a new outfit. I'm thinking that could get kindof expensive?
However, on the rare occasion that I'm flying solo, I tend to want to order pizza, eventhough I have food in the fridge. I also feel the need to drown my "lonely sorrows" in ice cream, eventhough I really don't need it. Why is that? Am I the only one who does this?
What are your favorite things to do when you are HOME ALONE?
