The numbers so far:
As of yesterday, spent a total of three hours, maybe four, out of the house... a whopping 20 minutes last week alone - bank & car wash run. Three weeks in, most days spent in pajamas; last week, 6 1/2 days in p.j.s.
Laundry loads last week: 3 (normal is 15+ per week).
Meals prepared last week: Too embarrassed to admit; maybe, one. Five days of ramen noodles lunch.
More 2012 numbers: About 30 minutes on phone; last week's total, about 5 minutes saying hi to mom. Five minutes first week with someone from Anderson show , and 15 minutes spilling my guts to the hub's best friend in week two.
