If I had time to MYSELF I would...

What would you do, if you had time to yourself?

This occurred to me for the first time ever in my memory of the past 10+ years, last night.

I was by myself.

What is a girl to do by herself???

I filled my alone time appropriately with favorite friends for an evening of lasagna and girl talk.
It was only after the girls left that I realized I was alone.

All by myself.

It is amazing how ice dropping at 2 am is SCARY!

I was terrified when I finally climbed in to bed knowing the house was secure and I breathed a sigh of relief and then the freezer decided to break the silence with ice falling.

I made it through the night and finally fell asleep after 1 episode of Zack and Cody and 1 episode of Hannah Montana.

I know silly.

Now hopefully I will be prepared for the next time I am ALONE.....

In another 10 years!!!

I bet Mr. JPSMOM is getting a big hug and welcome home. Good thing he protects you from the scary ice. :)

I'm not sure I've ever been alone in my house without kids or husband, but those sounds are more prominent when Rich is not around!

It's funny how you don't notice the normal noises until you are by yourself! That happens to me every time my hubby travels!

I wasn't completely alone on Sat. night, but without my husband. It just feels so strange without him here. I put Ginger, our Yorkie, in the bed with me..haha! I just liked having something else moving around in the bed with me during the night.
We say we want the time then don't know what to do with it!
