Away from home (whine)

I am away from home for 9 weeks. Away from the SO, the cats, the dogs, and the horse. It has been all of three days and I am already bored out of my mind! In my "free time" I usually clean, cook, organize, play with the dogs, watch a show with the SO, go out and ride the horse, move hay, muck stalls or cuddle the cats.

Now I am sitting in a hotel room with a TV and an internet connection and constantly refreshing HF in hopes of something interesting catching my eye. Help! Any good websites or TV shows you love? I do have HULU.

Thank you!

Eh, I'm Army, so 9 weeks isn't bad, not compared to what it could be. I'm not even being sent somewhere sandy, just classroom training, so it's pretty posh all things considered. I've got a knee bothering me though, so physical stuff is out of the question until I get the all clear from the MDs... probably part of why I'm so bored! :)

I may have to see if there's a rent-a-horse facility anywhere around me. It's been four days since my last ride and I'm getting twitchy!

To top it off, my guy, who has NEVER had any issues in the 14 months I've had him, broke with diarrhea yesterday. No other problems, so I have my trusted friend keeping an eye on him. We can't think of anything, and the only difference is that I'm out of town so he's had several days off, but that's never been an issue when I've been out of town before, so it's a wait-and-see for now.

Maybe I need a new book series.

In The Army, so I guess extra jogging is out of the question

A book or surely there is something on Hulu

9 weeks is long enough to find out what recreation facilities are available where you are now. Try something that you might not usually try at home, or maybe isn't available. For me it would be indoor water activities I would want to spend extra time at.
