How do you deal with being alone?


I'm not one for the night life like I was some time ago. I'm currently focusing on work (two jobs) and volunteering while my friend and I keep in touch and see each other at church once a week while she's dealing with school and raising her three kids.

My dilemma? I get a little lonely during down time even though I do get out for errands and I read once in awhile too. I don't have the guy crew around because they're all out of town.

Do you have any ideas on how to battle those lonely moments?
