Cures for the lonely-hearted

Ways to treat yourself when you're feeling lonely:

1) A big bowl of ice cream
2) A hot bath
3) An evening with a funny juvenile novel

After an afternoon (and part of an evening) of reading and hanging out with the dogs, I was finally starting to feel a little less depressed about being alone in the house. Then Michael called as he was getting ready for bed, and the tears started all over again. Frankly, I'm surprised at myself -- I'm not usually this weepy, and I had no idea being without Michael for a few days would make me this miserable.

Anyway, to try to get back to feeling semi-okay about the whole thing, I had a bowl of ice cream, took a hot bath by candlelight, and started to read The Higher Power of Lucky, a challenged children's chapter book that I blogged about a few months ago. I'm starting to feel a little better again, but I'm not going to try to work tonight -- I'll just continue reading until I go to bed.
