Good morning all!
I closed up the library and headed out for my 3 day weekend, not any too pleased with what I thought lay ahead.
Lorn moved out while I was at work. I knew that Max would be there for a bit before taking off to enjoy his friends for a few days up in the town to the left. Bear would be picking up the car that I'd been using all week to trade it in on a nice Outback. I'd be back to hoofing it.
I had time to shop and get supplies for the weekend. Saw the new car and said good-byes to Max and Bear. Then there it was... 3 days alone. I had no clue what I was going to do with myself all that time other than clean house and do laundry. Oh the thrill of that!
The house felt strange and empty of sound. I purposely turned out every light but the one in my room. I did not want company. Not the kind that drops in here anyway.
My house was quiet but the pond was loud and DH and I did our usual email thing. I had a couple of nice phone calls from two different frogs. Time passed much more quickly that I thought it would and I was certainly not lonely.
Today I have a lunch date with a frog I have only talked with on the computer who does not live too far away. He has one of those names that cracks you up... like Ted Bear, or my friend, Mary Jane Stoner. As usual all the information on him (verified by eharmony) has been sent to the bear, who will call me mid-date to see if I am chunked up in glad bags yet.
I'm still nervous. No matter how careful you are, you're still flying blind. This time I am not sure what we are going to do, but I like a good mystery.
Tomorrow if things go right, I'm off on a bus or by car...I'm kind of doubting the car borrowing this time. Down to sanctuary for a couple of days with one night.
Very cool beans.
So much for a lonely 3 day weekend and being totally alone. I'm glad it worked out this way. I know there will be plenty of time alone now. But I didn't really want to have a weekend of listening to the clock tick.
