My husband has a social activity for his section tonight – so, the question for the evening is, “What should I do?”
I’m getting used to finding weeknight activities for myself. And, honestly, much of the time, I don’t have to “find” an activity. Instead, I have one foisted upon me, as anyone who works in PR and tries to be involved in the community will certainly understand. For example, next week I have a dinner to attend on Monday, a JL meeting on Tuesday and a “just-for-fun” outing with some friends on Wednesday.
But coming up with Friday night plans that don’t include a bottle of wine and catching up on Project Runway (and the newest episode of The Office) are a very different thing. I have to work Saturday this week because we have a community event. So, late late late night plans are not part of the equation.
So, what should I do? Clean? Bake? Go to a movie? Paint pottery? Beg a friend to take pity on me? What do you other law wives and girlfriends do when you have extra, unexpected alone time on your hands?
On the upside, if my husband comes home before going out, I’ll have the computer and I have a very long, photo-intensive post to write so I can wow you with my repair-woman ingenuity. So, get excited for that (little tiny bit of sarcastic inflection here).
