This weekend Nick and I went to the Ducks Unlimited Banquet in our town. I used to bartend for Ducks Unlimited when I was in college and I always have fun attending banquets.
I bid on and won a Jill Strickland painting at the banquet. This was the first time I've ever gotten anything in an auction. I gave a friend a Jill Strickland for her birthday one year, and I've always wanted one of my own. When I saw one in the auction, I said it had to come home with me.
Nick travels for work and is usually gone Monday through Friday, so I spend a lot of time alone when I'm not at work. I work a 9-5 type job, so I'm usually solo at night when he's not home.
Sometimes I get sad and lonely when he leaves, but lately I've really been making an effort to find things to keep myself occupied. Saturday I went to Hob Lob and got supplies for a new spring wreath. I made it yesterday evening after he left so I would have something to do. Its not my best, but I think it will do for a while (until I get tired of looking at it).
Does anyone else have a significant other that travels?
I'm also making an effort to make plans with friends during the week, instead of sitting at home alone. Last semester I was in school (just one class) in addition to working (I eventually want to change careers), so I didn't really have free time. Since I'm not in school right now, I have a friend I meet at the gym every Monday, another friend Tuesday, and I'm trying Pure Barre for the first time on Thursday.
More about Pure Barre later. I hope I will love it!
Hope y'all have a good Monday!
