On My Own

Sing the title out with all of your Les Mis goodness...

Sidenote 1: is it just me or is the singing voice in your head much more talented and less pitchy than the one coming out in your throat? Yeah, I thought it was just me.

I have a lot of free alone time on my hands with K-dubs being in Georgia. And I have found some non-creative but all together lovely ways of filling them.

1.) Watching pointless TV and movies on Hulu (and the non-gov't sanctioned Hulu type sites), catching up with programs on their respectable network sites (I'm not trying to be illegal, I promise), and watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune with the roommates (can anyone tell me why the stupidest person always wins WOF?).

2.) Keeping my stuff clean so I do not let my roommates on to how big of a slob I am.

3.) Making dinner with and for the roommates (it is a lot of fun cooking for people who haven't eaten everything I make and aren't lactose intolerant).

4.) Went to the doctor for my last Ann Arbor check up. I got to hear the heartbeat and everything seems good.

5.) I have also been working out regularly. This is very good because I was worried I was gaining weight too quickly after my time with nausea that could only be calmed with hangover food. I have given up my tater tot ways and with my new energy have gotten myself back to the gym.

6.) I have also taken to reading...A TON! Right now I am working on the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde My sister in law got me into it, and they are so good. It is totally unlike any other book I have ever read. It is weird, and I had to suspend reality a bit when reading it. But the characters are so great and the plot is wonderful!

Also reading, Clive Cussler books with my nephew, Mikey
He is a really advanced reader but his mom doesn't want him to read stuff that is too advanced in content (sexuality or other themes). These books seem to be a perfect fit. A lot of action, some history, great characters, and fast plot. It also is wordy enough to slow him down a bit. He is like me in that he can gobble a 200 page book in a day.

If you have any other suggestions on what to do with some alone time, I would love to hear it. New books, activities? I have 10 more days alone, and I need to fill it up!
Sidenote 2: isn't that a much less whinier way of saying, "BLAGH! I AM WITHOUT KW FOR 10 MORE DAYS! WAHHHHHH!!!"

oh I love me some summer reading. And I'm amazed how fast I can get thru books when flyboy isnt around. I'm a reading machine dammit.

oh hey, I think I'm going to give up on using a picture. I played around taking some and I cant make my mess look like anything creative it just looks like a mess.
