I love our house, I love taking care of our house, I love our little angel...but it can get very boring around the neighborhood being the only person home. There are only 5 family's living on the block with 3 new homes on the market. Everyone works except the wonderful couple across the street who just had their first child on Sept. 2nd...he's in the Army on medical leave and she, well, just had a baby. There is only so much a person can do around the house until the exact same thing is done again.
I've cleaned up the living room just to have Olivia mess it up again...that's ok, it's her job. I've done a load of laundry every day this week. I clean the kitchen, vacuumed the floors (what little carpet we have), and check email several times a day. Ok, maybe there's other things I can do around the house, but knowing I can't go anywhere at anytime is starting to create cabin fever. Oh, it's still to hot to go outside with Olivia during the day.
So maybe I just need to sit down and read a book, something that is not on my school's reading list anywhere...it's been a while since I've read for pleasure, not purpose.
