Do you have a dog? I have felt so much more comfortable be home alone now that we have a dog. I used to spook being alone at night when my kids were younger and my hubby worked night shift.
I even called the police one night because I got so spooked.
I like Nanners idea too..........have a slumber party.
Keep your cell phone close to you. I will keep mine on the bedstand when I am home alone.
Remember when the sun comes up you will be fine so keep telling yourself you will be ok. You can call your hubby in the middle of the night just for reassurance.
