Party Time! Sort Of… ๐Ÿ˜

Note: I’ve post-dated this entry because I didn’t want to be so blatant about being home alone while I was actually home alone. Christopher comes back today so now I’m okay posting about it.

Christopher left his morning on a four day business trip. It’s always the same –I’m very excited the day he leaves, excited to eat lots of garbage, go to bed really late, and maybe take an Uber to and back from a favorite store (that’s how I party). In reality, I eat UberEats once, go to bed late because I do more housework than usual, and spend my nights in terror because I hate being home alone at night. Lol.

Anyway, as usual, I asked Christopher if I could order takeout just once at some point during his business trip (he said yes) and did it literally as he was pulling out of the driveway… ๐Ÿ˜… Oops. That counts, right? He’d technically already left.

After working on art for a while, I went grocery shopping for the week (after, of course, a super indulgent “Little” outing –Goodwill and Five Below). I got my favorite, popcorn chicken, at Publix, and even had a soda with it! A real treat, so I took out the fancy china.

As if that weren’t enough I had milk and cookies for dessert… I told you I’m partying.

Part of the reason for the “Little” shopping outing was sleepover snacks. I’m having a sleepover with my new friend in the middle of the LAN. She likes gummies like me so I got a lot of those, among other stuff…

At Goodwill I found a cute Golden Book to use for scrapbooking. At Five Below I got a Grogu sticker for my water bottle, a Pound Puppies bag clip, some “affirmation cards” (very cute and positive, these are also for scrapbooking) and two coloring books for the sleepover. ๐Ÿฅฐ

Here’s the sticker on my water bottle, it looks pretty nice:

Something else you can see in the other photo is my new Mandalorian sticker set. It’s one of those Amazon sticker sets from China that have a TON of stickers… looking at them, I think a lot are stolen art. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ I should have known better. But others are… um… I don’t even know how to put it. I’m just going to share some of my favorites and also some of the most “peculiar” ones below. The rest of the 60 sticker pack was more mundane. Cute, just not unusually so, or not unusually wtf, unlike, well, some of these:

In the evening, after some housework, I tried to make kale chips. It’s maybe the third time I try. Even though they were a bit too oily and salty, I finally managed to get them nice and crispy! So I’m excited to try again in the future.

Since Christopher isn’t home I decided to let Tomoyo sleep with me. She’s usually too poorly behaved to be allowed upstairs at night. She was happy, though.

And that’s it… that was my first, indulgent day, but really one that comes before what I know will be an incredibly busy week. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ฆ Goodnight, everyone!

๐ŸŒˆ Part 4: I dunno man, just snells. ๐ŸŒˆ

๐ŸŒˆ Part 6: A General Overview ๐ŸŒˆ

Fun fact: the romaine lettuce is a minimal part of their diet. After the photos, for darkness, humidity and obviously nutrition, they get covered in dark leafy greens. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
