Jimmy was away on a guys’ trip to Wisconsin from Thursday until Sunday and man did I miss him! It was my first time being alone in our house overnight and thankfully I was safe and nothing crazy happened.
I felt so loved by the people in my life while my other half was gone. From texts, calls, and spending time with loved ones, I felt cared for physically and emotionally.
On Thursday night, my father-in-law and his girlfriend came over to have dinner with me and keep me, Malcolm, and Lola company. We had a nice time talking, watching Malcolm goof off, and sharing a meal with each other.
Most of Friday was spent with my family. My mom and I worked on wedding and bridal shower things for Hannah’s upcoming big day. We practiced making chocolate covered pretzels as favors for the wedding and they came out great!
We ended up in a craft store late at night and got a little crazy. Dancing, laughing, and trying on bumble bee hats. All signs of a fun time.
I also received a lesson from Hannah on how to take someone’s blood pressure. She’s loving nursing school and had ordered a blood pressure cuff that came in the mail the day I was there. My mom, dad, and I all took turns getting our blood pressure taken.
I didn’t get to hang out with Hannah too long because she had to leave for work. She’s currently working in a urologist’s office!
My mom admitted her deepest darkest secret, which is her addiction to peppermint mocha coffee creamer. We popped into Target at one point in the day and she grabbed a bottle to add to her stash. She’s convinced her favorite flavor isn’t around all year, so she’s become a hoarder 🙂
Saturday was spent soaking up the sun. It was in the 60s in Pittsburgh, so I took Lola and Malcolm for a walk. Lola on her leash and Malcolm in his stroller, of course. I also watched a documentary on female chefs and gender inequality called Hungry. It was very intriguing and eye-opening.
On Sunday morning I went to church and then did some household chores until Jimmy came home in the early evening! He had time for a quick shower, and then we were off to evening church. We spent the whole ride there catching up, and it was amazing to just talk in person.
Being home alone for a few days wasn’t bad at all, but I’m so glad to have Jimmy back!
