Home Alone!!!

I found myself home alone today at 1:30 in the afternoon!!!  Al The Tile Guy finished grouting…Mike The Contractor stopped by to check up on us…and by early afternoon…Lucy and I were all alone. 
I had no clue what to do.
It was strangely oddly quiet.
No footsteps on the stairs.
No front door opening and closing.
I forgot how it felt to be alone.
Saturday was not a free day.  Al The Tile Guy wanted to tile.
Sunday was not really a free day.
The cupboards were bare.
Lucy had no food.
My little zebra finches…Jake and Jack…had no food.
Patty and Dennis had no food.
So Sunday was spent gathering and foraging.
Actually the gathering was done at Fresh Market and the Farmer’s Market.
The foraging, too.
My bad.
Lest I forget where this is going.
Here is what I did with my freedom.
I fell asleep.
Sound asleep.
For about an hour.
And…in case you were wondering what my future holds?
Tommy The Plumber will be here tomorrow and so will Al The Tile Guy and Mike The Contractor and I get to meet a new guy…Brian The Shower Door Guy!!!
Oh…and since my husband has a doctor’s appointment he will be home for lunch.
When will my life come back to me?

    Patty…when your life comes back it won't be the same….so enjoy the nap and the foraging and newness of the tile guy and the grout and solitude for the afternoon!
