    yup i'm actually alone.

    i sent difficult child to dad's and let go. hopefully he'll keep her hydrated i'll get her back tmrw. it is just a short overnight to say good bye.

    easy child went into the manhattan with her best friend my brother and his friend and is sleeping at my mom's..

    husband is at work and hopefully getting out early so we can go have a drink somewhere and just be together. last date we had i have no clue when that occured.

    i dropped girls at long island railroad, put difficult child in ex h's car and went shopping got a warm down jacket for oregon, a new pair of much larger jeans, been trying to fit my fat self into my old ones, and a cool sweater......

    than i went thru taco bell drive thru and got so much food and yup am home alone yay!! with all my taco bell and my larger jeans so i can fit into them tonight after eating all of it!

    i soooo needed this. going to watch a movie alone too...play wii, walk around the house and dance maybe lol. till he gets out and we go out for a bit.

    sleep late tmrw........ oh man such a beautiful thing had to share :)

    anyone else get some much needed alone time?? i can't survive without it

    It is so good to hear!!! You so needed this break!!! A time to let go and recharge!! Have a great time!!! :)

    p.s. I can't be alone. Have been snowed in since Thursday! Plow has gone through and our snow removal guy was here early this morning but it is too cold outside for difficult child to be outside for very long. I was happy just to have Diva home safely for the duration. We even had to deal with the stress of her work not accepting the fact that she was NOT going to drive 30 miles in a blizzard to work a minimum paying job. They finally let her off the hook but I think her boss should not have even put that pressure on her. The freeway going there was only open a short time during which she could not get out of our driveway. So, we both went through several hours agonizing over the fact she would loose a job she loved just because it was unsafe to get to work. I was so relieved when her boss came to her senses and helped out. She told Diva it was Diva's job to get her own replacement. I told Diva that once she has TRIED to do her job and still could not get it done, it is then her boss's job to make sure the shift is covered. Who wants to work New Year's Eve? Diva did EVERYTHING in her power to find someone but no one would answer their phone and when they did, it was all, "NO".

    Best bet is to find out if local bands have an online forum where they talk and advise their gigs.

    Wow. When I lived on the gulf coast there were live bands to be found any weekend night, even holidays. Might be some hole-in-the-wall place, but there was always something.
    Any place with sawdust on the floor and a jukebox in the corner?
