Day 1 on my own (now with pics)

August 9th, 2011 at 10:07 am

Well, I've been family free for about 24 hours now. It's very strange. I used to be at home alone all the time before marriage and kids, and it was never weird, but once you are used to a housefull of people, it's very strange!

In that time, I've managed to get a little bit of freelance work done. I painted a road construction themed mural in my 3 year old's room (putting finishing touches on it now), and just have to move the furniture back. I'm putting the third coat of paint on the kitchen. (it's red, so it requires lots of coats, ) so that should be done soon.

Hopefully, I'll be able to wrap up some freelance projects today, finish painting, and start on the ocean themed mural in my youngest room today.

Then tomorrow, off to New Orleans to visit friends. Lots to do!Here are some pics, as you requested. I haven't added the trucks, cars, and construction equipment to son's mural yet, but you get the idea!

    Living with DH for 8 years I am hardly ever alone, and I know it sounds mean but I have always fantasised about living by myself! Of course I wouldn't trade what I have for the world, but it's nice to imagine a parralel universe....
    I do enjoy my time alone when he goes away for a weekend, but I'm also happy to see him when he returns.

    I lived alone from 20 to 26, and I loved it. The serenity! How I miss peace and quiet. Oh well, only 15 more years until the kids go to college!

    I would have to get my HotWheels and Matchbox cars and drive them down the road on the wall. Vroom. Veeeerrrrroooommm! Errrk! (chipmunk on road)
