My husband went out to a party tonight for the first time ever....

leaving me at home, alone with the baby asleep. I am THRILLED! I don't know what to do with myself. I can't decide if I should read a book, take a bath or just goof off! Is this normal for me to feel like this?

  • I like to read a book while soaking in the tub and sipping a glass of wine. YES, it's normal. Enjoy it. You need quite time, he needs a break to socialize, everyone is happy.
