I have been home alone for a week now. With the exception of the blog, I have basically taken that week off.
I’ve done some laundry. I’ve cooked for myself and cleaned up from that. I have done little else besides reading, watching football, and taking walks. It was nice, but also very lonely. It was actually lonelier the two times I left the house and went somewhere where there were other people. That also made me question why I go to a place where no one talks to me, but that is a post for another day.
I have a plan in my head for what I need to do this week. It’s fun stuff like mowing, cleaning bathrooms, and vacuuming. I also need to go to two libraries to pick up books. A grocery store run is possible.
It all starts with that first step. One problem – I’ve been awake since 4am. By the time it seems like a reasonable time to take that step I already feel done with the day.
My motivation will be tested this week. Hopefully, I will pass that test.
