On My Own

It's funny how quickly a person can get used to something. I lived alone for almost a decade; well, alone with Camilla, that is. Todd and I have lived together for only a few months and already I feel out of sorts now that he's out of town. He left earlier today for luxurious Dayton, Ohio for work, and I feel like I'm rattling around here on my own.

After he left for LaGuardia, I read A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge, a graphic novel Todd bought recently. I watched disc one of the second season of Mad Men. And now I'm watching my first ever episode of Hoarders on A&E, which I keep hearing about but hadn't seen until tonight. Camilla and I are hanging out as we did many nights on our own over the years, but now it's not as much fun.

I'm looking forward to Todd's return.

That show is horrifying! I have to clean the house after every episode I see. I feel so bad for those people they profile.

Hope you survive on your own all week :) Will he be back by your b-day?

I washed the dishes and tidied up as soon as it was over--the show is a warning call to anyone with rat pack tendencies, that's for sure.

Todd will be back on Friday night, so he'll be here to ring in my new year with me.

Awwww. I love this post.

I've never heard of that show, but it kinda scares me now.

I'm just glad he'll be back from glamourous Dayton in time to celebrate your B-day with you.
