Well, I had the evening to myself tonight. First in a long, long, long time. Well, maybe ever actually...at least since I've been married. If my hubs was ever going to be out-of-town, I just would go over to my parents for the night. Anyway, my hubs did come home for dinner at the normal time. But then after we ate and chatted a bit, he went back to the lab to get more work done. I was fine with that, except the silly spring weather in Colorado had me on edge the whole time he was gone...well...in fact he's not quite back yet...but will be any minute! :)
Anyway, I made my "Brick oven style pizzas" for dinner tonight. And they turned out really well. (Which is always nice right?!?) Then I decided to make some bread for the weekend tonight. So I used my Honey Wheat Oat Bread recipe and it also turned out well. (Again, love it when things go well in the kitchen!) So, it was about 8 o'clock at this point and that's about the time that my hubby and I would normally sit down on a Friday night and watch a movie. Well, since he wasn't here, I wasn't going to watch one by myself...although maybe I should have. :)
I did go ahead and make the popcorn though. I have one of those Stir-Crazy popcorn poppers. I love it. The popcorn always turns out perfectly and it doesn't require much oil at all. Hm...how my family has always loved popcorn. And my hubby and I definitely keep up the tradition. Which I'm sure we'll pass down the generations too...hehe I do love popcorn. Although, I realized it's not the best thing to eat while home alone. It's very choke-able. Luckily I only had one big choke and it didn't require any dialing of any three numbers. So, note to self--next time hubby is gone for the evening...don't make popcorn! :)
Oh, and if you are wondering. I am self sufficient. I can do things alone. I can do things without my husband. But, I like to spend time with him. You know, God put us together for a reason. So, I'm going to go with God's idea and spend time with my hubby. Plus, we are not two, but one. So, really it's just like spending time with the rest of myself. :) That said...I was actually lonely tonight. Mostly because...I don't think I have spent an evening at home without him since we got married. Anyway...I am ranting.... It's just interesting.
PS I am pretty much terrified of tornadoes....and the dark....so that's pretty bad combo on a night like tonight. :( Good thing my husband will be home very soon. :)
