Preparing for loneliness ...

I'm REALLY not looking forward to next week. I mean really.

No, it doesn't help that we're going to sweat our guts out earning the "sweat equity" part of the addition. But that's a whole other dreaded topic ...

Three of my buddies have/are going to leave me. None of them told me I stink, but I'm starting to wonder.

Marilee used to come over once a week to scrapbook. Truth be told we really didn't get tons of scrapbooking done, but we got lots of talking time and "less stress" time. It was something to look forward to every week. And then Marilee's husband got a job in Virginia and off they moved ...

Hilary and her girls used to join us twice a week for dinner. Then came along baseball and our renovation, so we faded dinners out and planned to regroup once the addition is done. However, now Hilary has left me to go spend time with her husband in Wyoming for the month of July. Okay, so she'll get to see Lee everyday she's there, but why would anyone want to see their husband more than 2 days per month?

And my mom. :( She used to have Wednesdays and Fridays off of work, so those were our days together. Then she retired, and I could go down and spend any day with her that I wanted to. That was a fun/cool change. We had a scrapbooking marathon last weekend with her, my sister Rachel and me where we scrapbooked until midnight. But now she's leaving for her mission on Monday. Woe is me!

What will I do with all of my "spare" time? I'm going to have to convince Rachel to come to MY house to scrapbook to make sure we both actually do it. And maybe I'll actually get around to cleaning this mess I call home (but don't hold your breath). Anyone have a tissue?

Wow, sorry you will be so lonely. Don't worry though I think they all still like you. :) If you ever want to call to chat to take up some of that "time" I'm here. :)

What do you guys have to do for the sweat part of your remodle?

I don't have any tissue, but I'd be happy to lend you my nice orange shop rag! :) If it helps, all of us who left you lonely will also be missing you!!
