10 on tuesday (1)

Yeah, on Wednesday. How did I miss Tuesday? I was awake for almost its entirety. Anyway, this week's topic is:

10 Things You Like to Do Alone

  1. Read
  2. Drive
  3. Travel
  4. Watch embarrassingly cheesy reality TV shows
  5. Craft
  6. Paint (walls, furniture, canvases)
  7. Eat a full order of dessert
  8. Go to the museum
  9. Take pictures
  10. Sit on the porch

Some of these things I like to do with other people, too. Probably the thing I enjoy the most on that list is #8. I love going to the Museum of Fine Arts in the middle of a workday. I don't get the opportunity to do that very often but maybe I should try to work it in. I like it because of all the beautiful art, because it's always the perfect temperature and humidity, and because it's quiet. I love the sound of only my feet hitting the wood floors. I love turning the corners through the maze of walls only to find yet another empty room. I love the sneakiness of not being "productive" during a workday. It's great.

I must say that when I saw this topic it made me think of Sex and the City and secret single behavior. I'll have you know that I do not stare at my pores for an hour every night. Wow, would that make me depressed. What do you like to do alone?

Whenever Bryan goes out of town and I have the place to myself, I always give myself a pedicure. I don't know why. It's not like he restricts me from doing it when he's here, but it just seems like a girly alone-time thing to do.

That, and clean. Cuz I know it will still be clean when I wake up in the morning! And when I get home from work! Amazing, really. So is the boring life of a married gal. Sigh.

I was going to try to post a "Ten on Tuesday" list on my blog this week, but I could only come up with a few things I like to do alone: 1) nap, 2) bathe, and 3) poop. I guess I just don't do much by myself....and when I am by myself, I'm usually doing one of those three things!

I love to go to the movies alone. Which I don't get to do too often...

I will refrain from taking your nice, sweet blog straight into the gutter

Thank you, anonymous. I filter out the non-nice, non-sweet parts because sometimes older people and family members read this.
