No, I'm not feeling down and out. I'm just physically alone...for the whole weekend. See, its race weekend here...and fever has been bubbling in my small town. We're approximately 10 miles (if that) from the speedway and all I've seen today is RVs heading east towards the raceway. Now, the actual race isn't until tomorrow, but I dropped hubby off at 6:45 this morning with his buddies. They will be RVing at the speedway until Sunday. Luckily, the also have tickets to get into the race, so as long as the weather cooperates, they'll be trackside. It's not often that I'm home alone for long. I actually don't like being home by myself at night. Now, I know I have my 2 trusty canines to keep me company, but it will be strange not having hubby in the bed next to me. But I'll make the most of it.

I'm working from home today (missed my train b/c I dropped DH off) and tomorrow I'm supposed to spend the day with a girlfriend who just moved back into the area with her DH. Should be an interesting day. Sunday, I have plans with my mom...going to breakfast, shopping, and pedis. Lord knows I NEED A PEDI SO BAD! I'm embarrassed to take my socks off!

Anyway, that's about all I have for now...except that my meds should arrive tomorrow. Yippee! I'll post the obligatory med photo, but most likely not until Sunday as DH took the camera with him!

I don't like being home alone either. I like it for the first couple of hours and then I get lonely with no one to talk to.

For about a year, I was on dayshift while my husband worked nights. I HATED it. I feel ya.

I am jealous of your hubby too! I would love to see the race!

I hate spending the night alone (in fact, I think I've only done it once or twice), but I love having time to myself in the day time to do "me" things that DH isn't interested in.

Sounds like you have a busy weekend planned, so you hopefully you won't be feeling too alone. Enjoy your "me" time. :)
