Well, my parents have been gone for 6 days now, and I think that I am finally getting used to being in this big house by myself. This dreary weather has put me in a somber mood and it's made it easier to be more easy going about the whole thing. On top of which I have gotten some great support from my beloved friends! It's amazing how much an email or picture message can mean to you when you're all alone (that's for you Justin and Chris, in case you read this)!!!
So, I think this has been a good experience overall.
Of course, I don't really ever want to do it again. I've still got three more nights to get through!
