    Not the movie...

    My wife and two daughters are away camping this week. They all left Saturday morning just after I left for work. I was re-hired at my old job in the spring but by then the holiday schedule was already posted so I had last pick for time off. I could have bumped someone but the only p[erson i couldn't bump had the same 2 weeks booked as my wife.

    So, I wasn't able to take the time off to go on holidays with my wife and kids this year. I guess it sorta works out because I did manage to book the time off to go to Moab in October but I have to say it's damn lonely at home right now.

    I thought I'd enjoy the peace and quiet but it actually sucks. My truck is too far away from home to easily go work on. I work afternoon shift so I'd have to drive almost an hour there in the morning, maybe get 2 1/2 hours in on it and then drive directly from there to work and work 10 hours. Not gonna happen, I hate going to work tired.

    Anyways, it's too damn quiet/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Wow! Home alone! No way to keep the truck at home while they're gone? Don't recall why it's where it is...

    Let's see... if I was alone, I'd run around the house nekkid for a while, then fix all the little stuff that needed fixing, have a movie marathon, drive up to the truck anyway, reorganize my garage... Hey! I AM alone! See ya! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have my truck about 30 miles from here tucked away in an old horse barn we call the "Bat Cave". It's not running and isn't insured at the moment so bringing it home isn't an option.

    Don't like it to much myself when the wife and kid leaves town. It seems OK for the first day or so but after that it is way to quite... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    You need to get out of that apartment and become a home owner! Then you'll ALWAYS have plenty of projects to keep you busy. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I find when the house is empty, the first few days are great (eat pizza, drink beer, work on Jimmy, finish up various projects), the next few days are so-so (running out of projects, running out of beer, tired of pizza), and last few days kind of suck (body is screaming for some sort of nutrition like fruit or a salad, projects are done, OD'd on porn). /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hang in there, Rene! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Still not running around nekkid...but it's on my to-do list/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Here is what I did last night, worked from 2:30 pm til 1 am...drove out to the 'bat cave' and worked on my tube doors for 3 hours and got home around 5 am. Slept til almost noon...

    I got one of the tube doors finished and painted, it looks pretty bling!

    I'd probably do the same again tonight but I have to in at work at 10:30 on Wednesday so I wouldn't be able to get enough sleep.

    Overall I guess when I say "some peace and quiet would be nice" I'm only talking about an hour or two, not a week. This is definitely too much of a good thing.

    Fridge is empty, I'm almost out of frosted cheerio's, the house is a mess and I am in desperate need of a shower...

    At least the cats and plants are still alive (for now)/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Pam, I now have this mental image of you running around your house nekkid, stopping once in a while to post on CK5.
