I'm not the happiest camper. I don't mind evenings without Le Husband every now and then. Whenever he traveled each month I used the time to get extra catch up time with my girls and my trashy shows, haha. While I enjoy a bit of ME time here and there, I'm an extrovert by nature so being around people is my happy place.
As you can imagine a weekend when I'm all alone is not my favorite. Le Husband spent the weekend with friends in Denver and my extended family headed to North Carolina for a wedding and beach trip early Saturday morning. So this weekend it was just me myself and I. In Tennessee. With none of my gaggle of friends or family. I know there are many women [especially mamas] out there who would relish a weekend alone, however without my normal home base I felt a lil bit lonely. Clearly with everything going on in the world being lonely is peanuts, but this blog is my reality.
This weekend alone I...
... spent evenings sitting on the deck watching the sun set.
... spent Saturday morning subbing a BODYPUMP class at a new gym.
... did another thirty minutes swimming and stretching. Time in the gym was time away from an empty house.
... listened to multiple podcasts of MY FAVORITE MURDER which is my NEW FAVORITE podcast.
... caught up on my silly reality television shows while vegging on the couch when it rained.
... scheduled a massage for Monday because my five BODYPUMP classes last week were killer.
... cleaned up our room and reorganized things.
... watch a live kickball stream on the porch. #checkoutthesunset
... slept way better than expected in an empty home that isn't mine.
... woke up bright and early to try out two new churches in the area.
... came home changed into my bathing suit and headed down to the lake.
... went on a ninety minute SUP excursion and dodge many a boat on the water. #everyonewasouttoplay
... attempted, rocked and DOCUMENTED the headstand on a SUP. #yesifellonce
... listened to more podcasts while doing chores around the house.
... ate sushi and binged on Disney movies for dinner. OH EM GEE Home Alone 2 came on afterwards and I was soooooo stinking excited. It's almost CHRISTMAS IN JULY, friends!
... ate my token ice cream and snapped the token picture for National Ice Cream day. #sogood!
... prepped this post [GO ME], did some reading then headed to bed.
I think for my first weekend all alone in a new city I did pretty well. I hope next time to have a group of friends to call or a some girl dinner dates scheduled. Looking forward to finding my squad down here for sure. I'm picking Le Husband today after my massage and before my last minute BODYPUMP sub request. I hope everyone has a great start to the week!
