Home Alone on a Friday Night

Unbelievable! My house is completely silent tonight. I've found myself all alone on a Friday night. Adrienne and Leah have gone babysitting and Darren has taken Nathan and Sammie and their friends up to my Uncle Ted's ranch in Evanston, WY. We will join them tomorrow for snowshoeing, cross country skiing and sledding.

I survived my first week in the autism class. Not only did I survive, I thrived. I absolutely loved being at school for six hours a day this week. Need a cure for the January blues? Get a job, I tell you. It works wonders. I haven't functioned this well in January since the 80s. I am truly astounded at how much better I feel not being home all day. My little blue light box helps as well. The combination of the job and the light box seems to be working miracles with my mood! I'm so relieved. Only seven more days until January is over.

Let's see, what shall I do with three hours to myself? Watch a movie, GO to a movie, go to the library, go to the bookstore, work on my manuscript (nah)? Take a bath, file my fingernails, exercise (nah)? Read a book, clean the family room, (nah) pack for tomorrow? Drink hot cocoa while curled up in that super soft blanket? Look at the dings in the wall and the spots on the carpet? For sure I will crank the heat up now that Darren's not here to turn it down. It can actually be above 64 degrees tonight.

The possibilities are endless, but I'm leaning toward the library and Borders since I have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket.

What would you do on a Friday night that was all your own?
