In December, my boyfriend’s work schedule gets crazy. Like work-30-some-hours-in-one-weekend crazy. To keep myself from getting bummed about not seeing him as much, I remind myself that it’s only temporary, and then try to make the most of the extra alone time. Here are some things I do while he’s out there a’hustlin’.
♥ Thrift. (Duh.)
♥ Finish books I’ve been chipping away at for ages. One example, Dogfight: A Love Story, by Matt Burgess. Matt’s an incredible storyteller and I really loved his book.
♥ Go to bed early. Get up early. Boring, but true.
♥ Have chill girls nights at home. Like the mini baby shower/nacho night we had for Jamie last Saturday.
♥ Work on my pom-pom garland. One of these nights I’ll finish it, I swear! (This pretty one, clearly, isn’t mine.)
♥ Sort out the mess that is my studio. I have big plans for the space and can’t wait to have it be more functional. You know, instead of just being a place to pile clothes, books and boxes.
♥ Other things I’ve been up to…working on my list of goals for 2011, watching way too much of this show (why can’t I turn it off?? WHY?) and eating air-popped popcorn with Sriracha & a smidge of butter. Yum.
