Home Alone

Hallelujah! I'm alone! In the house by myself!

Auburn Guy went back this afternoon...I cried. I got over it.

'Bama Girl is at a friend's house...impromptu get-together with other 'Bama friends.

Don't get me wrong, I love both my kids with all my heart, but I've gotten used to having my alone time. I'm used to eating when I want, using all the hot water I want, not having to do laundry or dishes but once a week! And, since they've both lived on their own, they have gotten used to doing what they please...they've also forgotten what it's like to live with other people.

I got to finish all the painting in the master bath. Tomorrow I have to see if the tile I ordered came in (I'm afraid they're going to say it's not in stock anymore). If not, I'll have to go shopping for more.

I changed the color of the 'alcove' in the bath, mainly because I just didn't like the first. Brown and blue were my first choice anyway.

Kinda looks like chocolate milk!

My ...'s are getting out of control! So are my !'s. I think I'm going to change the !'s to ?'s. Then I'll sound like a teenager? All my sentences will end on an upnote? Hmmm...maybe not! There I go again. Maybe there's a 12 step program I can join. Punctuation anonymous? Punctuation Abusers? Rehab for the punctuation addict? Hi, my name is Debbie and I'm a punctuation addict.

Well, 'Bama Girl should be rolling in soon, I think I'll go take a bath before she gets here and so I can have hot water.




  1. Hope you enjoyed your time alone and had lots of hot water.

  2. I love the brown and blue! Last year Miss Priss wanted her bedroom brown and pink and we painted it Hot Chocolate. Looking at it in the can I was a little worried that it was going to be a mistake but it turned out nice. Enjoy your alone time. :)

  3. Thank you for visiting me. I've been painting, too and my brain sort of stopped working. Maybe it was paint fumes even though I use water based paint. I had no witty comments or fun places I had been to write about. I felt boring. But I was reading all you other inspiring bloggers.

    Anyway, I'm back, and I'll try to write something more often.

    Hugs, Susan

  4. All the hot water you want-sounds like heaven!

  5. I CRAVE my alone time and I don't think that it is a bad reflection of me or my kiddos. It just is what it is! Like the way the paint looks. Pretty shade of blue!

    Be blessed.


    Oh, and I would cry if I were sending my kid off to Auburn too!


  6. I understand what you mean about alone time. My hubbie travels 250 miles every weekend to go fishing and I stay home and enjoy the quiet for 2 days! That is my vacation.

    Oh, and I love the brown and blue paint together.

  7. One of the things I enjoying when I am home alone is a nice hot long bubble bath!
