Eric's back in the States for a few weeks visiting his family. This will be the longest I've gone without seeing him since March, when I went on R&R. I have a friend staying with me this week, but he's out dancing, and I'm at home because I'm still fighting off strep throat.
So I spent the evening catching up on Google Reader (apparently I've read 1800+ items in the last 24 hours), contemplating Christmas presents for friends (Turkish coffee and spices, I think), and reading (Hunger Games trilogy, again). It's eerily quiet in this house - even the cats are passed out asleep.
What to do with my three weeks of empty nesting?
