my s/o drove down for his station christmas party, however, half way there he had to put it in 4WD. it started snowing shortly after he left here. it wasn't the amount of snow, as it was freezing when it hit the ground. he made it there okay, but half the guys had to leave early to go into work, so he opted to head to his parents' house for the night, since it was closer, and he wouldn't have to drive over the mountain to get back home. so it's just me and the dog here tonight, watching christmas movies. staying warm and probably won't get much sleep, i usually don't sleep well when i'm home alone. so, is anyone else home alone tonight? how are you spening your saturday night? so it's just me

Well, I was visiting Houston for the weekend so I was not only not alone, but I was visiting people I don't often get to see, many of them I haven't seen in several years. I had a great time and a lovely visit with friends.

It was fun, and the weather was beautiful - we're supposed to get a front today (Tuesday) later on, yesterday (the 8th) was warm, humid and very windy.

Yes there is more of us home alone. My husband is in Louisiana where he has been since July 29th, and is trying to get home. The first month I didn't sleep at all. I went to bed when the sun came up. Then I started sleeping on the couch. Now I just go to my bed and sleep, I have the dog here with me and he will let me know if anyone is around. I live on a quiet street and I know the windows and door is secure, so that is not a problem. It just get boring here with no one to talk to. The dog has yet to answer me, some nights I have my grandson here, he is 21, and I guess just knowing that someone is in the house besides me makes it better. I stay up pretty late to play on the computer and respond to the discussions here. But will truly be glad when hubby gets back. I have to look to find something on the tv that is decent to watch. I know the family channel is showing christmas movies, sometimes I just get me a cup of International Coffe and curl up on the couch with my comforter. So be safe and know that there are others out there in the same shape. You said the roads was bad, so are ours, we had snow all day. It was good that he went to his parents and is safe it will be easier when day light comes to get back.

yes, i'm very thankful that his station is only blocks from his parents' home. this time of year i would rather know he is safe than out on the roads. hope your husband makes it home soon.

Well, it's just me and my 2 year old son at home tonight. I'm playing a game on moola and he is watching a Wiggles movie, so it's quiet at the moment. I hope you can manage to get some rest even though you are home alone. Have a great night!

You should have gone with him. I remember the fun times we had when we went to the sheriff dept. Christmas parties. No not home alone unless hubby gets called out to work but it is doubtful. We have been watching college football and it is not looking good for the team we wanted to win. Hope you sleep good tonight, you don't have anything to worry about since you have your watch dog with you.

it's actually a good thing i didn't go, no one here to let the dog out til whatever time he is able to get home tomorrow. and you're right, she is on duty whenever he's not home. i will probably head off to bed in a few minutes, it was a rough night last night, due to cast, finally got to sleep bout 4 this morning, and was up around 8.

I was at home alone on last Friday night. My husband went for a wedding dinner of his colleague, and I stayed at home alone until 11:30pm. I thought I'd have plenty of time doing my own stuffs, it ended up I kept surfing net, and spending time in mylot. I am spending a lot of time in mylot recently.

Currently I am never alone. I have a five year old and a 3 week old. When my hubby works late on a Saturday, I still have the kids to occupy my time. I generally wait for my hubby to come home to go to bed. Like you I don't sleep well alone.
