What to do?
What do you do when your DH, DW, girlfriend, boyfriend, SO, etc. is gone for a few days? Nick is away for a parade and change of command in Quebec City until Friday night, I just dropped him off. I plan on watching a few movies and playing some computer games, then tomorrow once my legs are better from the 7 hours of biking we did yesterday, I'll go shopping for some clothes (Haven't done that since January!). Other than that, any ideas? It's his birthday on Monday, and Monday is my first day of work in Ontario so I won't be here. Should I have a cake ready for when he gets home?

I've never made a cake before.. sorry I am rambling, but I am just trying to get ideas for what to do! Making a cake would definately be on the bill for Friday though!

Edit.. he turns the big 3-0! lol

Rearrange the furniture and toss one of the desks.

How about doing what I love to do - curl up with a good book.

When my hunney bunney is out of town....

I cook!

Big surprise, huh? LOL

It is when I either make a dish I like that she doesn't, like spare ribs and kraut,
or I attempt new stuff, with a back up Take N Bake pizza in the fridge, just in

Otherwise, why not make a spa-at-home day of it? Soft music, hot bath, indulgent
snacks, phone off the hook (or not), post the results of the furniture re-arrangement..

Eat dinner while standing over the sink.

:rofl: I wish!!!!!! I'm moving my things to Ontario next month so I won't bother with that.. lol... plus I need one of these desks to take with me!!

I think I might just cook, great idea ( who would have ever thought?!?!?)

I'm going to make a spinach artichoke dip that I absolutely LOVE. Not sure what else I can make, any suggestions? I kind of want to make a cake for him but I think I'd be better off buying one... !

I'm looking at snack foods to make. I already have 4 steaks in the fridge that I'm going to marinate and slice up for asian stir fry.

Because that's what people do when they are by themselves. LOL Steaks are a tad difficult though.

The only thing I've eaten over the sink on my own is a mango. I ate it like an apple and had juice dripping everywhere on my face, neck, hands. lol

In addition to the hot artichoke and spinach dip I might just get a nice cheese and some bread.
