It's Friday night and here I sit, on my bed, with my laptop in my lap, writing a post for my blog. Does anyone see a problem with this? Could it be that I am home on yet another Friday night? Alone! Well Matthew's here but he's supposed to be sleeping. I hear him shifting around so I think he's likely up but that's par for the course with us. The whole Matthew and sleep or non-sleep, as the case usually is, is another post though.
So here's the current problem, the way I see it. I live part way between two towns. The closest of those towns is at least a 20 minute drive. So, say I take Matthew to the babysitter, get all dressed up, drive the 20 minutes to the town, then what? There is nothing to do unless I am into the bar scene which I'm not and have never been.
I could drive 30 minutes or so the other direction, get to the other town and again, go sit in a bar. But suppose I was feeling very adventurous. I could drive an hour to a large city where I could go to a movie but who wants to spend two hours driving to see a two hour movie? That could make for a long night and a really late one. I imagine there must be other things to do in the city on a Friday night but really it would work out too expensive, with the babysitter (and an overnight stay at that), gas and whatever it was I did.
Oh well, it's a good thing Matthew, the farm, and all the animals tired me out during the day. It's 10:30 pm and I am ready to go to sleep. Tomorrow is another day and my mother is coming home after being in Jamaica for two months!
Matthew and I can't wait to see her!
