Things Jack learned about himself this last week – he does not like to be alone and gets lonely quite easily.
It’s been a weird old week with Lucy at her sister’s and Samantha at work. Samantha’s gone again today – to bring Lucy home – and they’ll be back later this afternoon and I am at a loss of things to do. The house is quiet and empty. I’ve not enjoyed rattling around it in on my own all week and I don’t know how Lucy did it all day, every day.
I ended up spending the latter half of the week out – at the library or at a coffee shop mostly… anywhere where there was human contact to be had. I thought about looking into volunteering opportunities. I may even have snuck into one or two of Samantha’s classes.
I always knew I was an extrovert and thrived on the company of other people but I had no idea how miserable it would make me to be on my own. I hope this is not an experience to be repeated anytime soon!
