What Do You Do When You are Home Alone?

United States
June 9, 2021 9:57am CST
Today I am home alone all day. My husband just left for a dentist appointment at a specialized dentist that is 1 hour away. He has to go get fitted for a replacement tooth, then wait around for 3 to 4 hours before it is ready and then get it put in. Then it's another 1-hour drive home. I have been almost giddy with excitement thinking about all I can do while he is gone. Crazy huh? We both work from home so we spend a lot of time together. I was tempted to go out and visit some thrift stores. But I have to wait here at home for a new vacuum to be delivered. Here is what I hope to get accomplished while he is gone: Take a nice hot shower Dust the first floor of the house Put away all of the clutter in our bedroom (I have too many magazines and books) Do 1 load of laundry Write out 2 cards to send to people I know who need cheering up Take the dog for a walk in our neighborhood Start to organize my office Oh yes, and eat a healthy lunch! What do you do when you're home alone and have the house to yourself?

A lot of the time I play my guitar and mess around with my recording, either working on covers or something original. It is something that I really enjoy, and sometimes the wife is just to pestery for me to be able to enjoy it as much when she is around. Especially if I am recording and she turns on the washer or dryer which is right outside my man room. My condenser mic picks all that up. lol

@Kouponkaren It is of course an entirely made up word. But I have no dibs on it. Use it as you wish. But I also am very willing to offer my PayPal account if you want to send some royalties. lol

I dont enjoy cleaning but find it easier to do when my husband isn't here, so that's why I am doing a lot of cleaning today.

@CuriousGab Well, my husband always falls asleep when we watch movies together. Our kids are grown so it is just him and me and the dog! Maybe I will plan a movie night just for myself and watch a movie on my computer.

I would probably watch movies also if I wasn't always so far behind on my house cleaning!

I think it will be the busy schedule if I live in a house alone. I will always try to clean up the rooms and walls. I don't like if my surroundings are filthy. I read books and then I cook some specials for my self everyday. And I di gardening and lot more stuff.

I like to garden too, but right now I only have flowers, not vegetables. Because it has been raining for 2 days, I didn't have to water my flowers as part of my to-do list today.

@Kouponkaren It's been cloudy in our area since morning but no rain.

It feels like I’m having the best part of my life having the house to myself. I listen to music all day long. I watch videos without anyone judging me. I blast the AC in the other room and it feels great to feel comfortable. I have no one to answer to. Nobody is being nosy of why I’m on the internet too much.

My routine when I'm alone at home, I clean the room, living room, family room, windows, the most important thing is to cook, make donuts, or brownies.
