Babysitters, or HoMD #49

Monday, February 18th, 2008

The Husband left this morning for a business trip to Hawaii (feel free to share your thoughts on this obvious boondoggle), and I’m left to my own devices for the week.

I pictured a lonely week of junk food, video games, and talking to the cats, but so far not so pathetic.

One of my good friends had the day off for President’s Day and invited me to join her and her husband for lunch at our local Indian spot. Socializing in the middle of the day? Sign me up! The food was delicious and the conversation was even better.

Then, knowing of my lonely state, the lovely couple invited me over for a tasty supper of Chicken Tortilla Soup.

Not only am I well-fed, I’m decidedly less lonely than I feared when The Husband left this morning.

Heaven bless good friends.
