Bored and Lonely....

Now that I Finally have the house to myself, I am bored and lonely!

I sound like a spoiled child whining!  I laugh at my childlike behavior.

I am sooo thankful, relieved, compassionate, humbled as I gripe.

I am reminded of the children of Israel so I will keep this session short.

Trying to remedy my boredom, I ventured out to the chiro.  It felt good to drive again (with hand controls)

I drove the van that was pronounced DEAD by several mechanics.  It is running good for now.

Remember I am learning this "One day at a time" even with the old van.

What am I complaining about?  I need to clean house, ebay, amazon, pay bills, talk on the phone, watch TV, go to the store, Blogging also :)

ps.  After posting this, I have been very busy today doing the list above.   Be careful what you wish for!

You could always travel several hundred miles north and have some tea with me while we watch the snow!!
Peace,

Hi Kim,
Me too, bored and lonely since Hubbers returned to work on Monday. He was driving me crazy while he was laid off. Guess you don't know what you've got til it's gone. Ebay, now there's an idea ;)

Cheers

I used to feel that way a lot too when I wasn't working and hadn't started school yet. That's when I got into blogging more. It really did help because I "met" so many people!

I used to try to find an errand to run a couple of times a week just to get out of the house. Like one day I'd go to the store and buy milk. A few days later I'd stop by the post office for stamps. I could've done both things in one day but it made me get out a bit and I found it made me feel better on the days I did that.

Any change in daily routine takes some getting used to. Don't be too hard on yourself as you adjust!

Hey, you are still so very thankful, and you remember the bible story! So all is cool, you feel what you feel! We can't help our feelings, but we can our thoughts, and yours are all thankful and good!

Yep, I've done that! I've looked forward to having the house to myself and then when it happens I have no idea what to do. Hehehehe.

I'm happy for you that your van is running again. It helps to be able to get out of the house, though in the end you got a lot accomplished.

I get like that sometimes myself... But on the other side of the coin I also like to be alone at home occasionally.
