this is partly why i got a husband.

what do you do when your husband is away at scout camp and you hear monsters in your apartment at 2 AM?

why… you turn on every light/ lamp/ night light in your little 450 sq ft place, make homemade rice pudding, check all Olympic updates on NBC (namely gymnastics), scrub the tub, download lots of new music, read the next 400 pages of your book and even though you’re exhausted- refuse to close your eyes until it’s bright outside again.  

not that i would know, but if it were me, that’s what i would do. 
  1. yum…rice pudding. I’ve had that feeling before…meanie monsters!

    Fact: Monsters Inc is my all time favorite movie! And, I love that you can admit to being scared of monsters on your blog. You truly are rockstar material. I should have known.

  5. My hub is off to camp this week too. And what do I do? Get the flu. Grrr.

  6. like you didn’t know Dan was at camp – see, my brain must have been flushed down the toilet.

  7. marci, blame it on the blueberries. now that i’m thinking about last night– i bet they gave you the flu.

  8. I scrubbed the tub last night as well. I also made caramel popcorn (ate all of it too) and watched the Olympics. Dan had a late night at work but luckily was home to protect by my bedtime. Hope they didn’t eat you all up. When does the husband head home?

  9. And what book are you reading? I think I might have a hunch…..

  10. This is also why I got a husband and good for you for being so productive. I would have huddled on the couch with a movie or called and made someone stay on the phone with me. Productive is much better.

    My husband also left me this week for scout camp… night time feedings are all me this week and it sucks, so that’s what I have been doing all night long. Luckily my little monster is so dang cute it’s hard to be mad at him…

  12. i get to join the club also, my husband went out of town last week for work. i had a mental freak out when my neurotic brain told me that the noise i heard was someone coming into my house to get me.
    i think i need a cat or a puppy when he’s away… or rice pudding.
