Home alone

So last night I decided to watch Julie and Julia on demand. I haven't ordered anything on TV in a long time but I was feeling kind of down and there was nothing on regular TV. Anyway, I love in the movie how Julie is feeling lost and decides to blog about cooking her way through Julia Child's masterpiece Mastering the Art of French Cooking. That got me to thinking about the path my life has taken, and how I, like Julie, sometimes feel a little lost. I also tend to procrastinate and not finish things so I am making a goal similar to Julie's. This year is a big one for me and I'm going to try to chronicle it.

This is the first time in my life I have ever lived alone. It's been a few months now but with this being the beginning of the year I'm going to start from here. I won't be alone for the entire year because, I assume, my son will be home from college in the summer but I'll deal with that when it gets here. The other thing I realize when I say I'm home alone is that I'm not really alone. The dog is here. Juneau is a year and half old pure bred Siberian Husky. She belongs to my son but due to circumstances that I don't really fully understand, she is with me...only temporarily, I hope. So maybe this should be called Home Alone with Dog.

And so the story begins...
