This is what I did when Hubs went away for 5 days:
Never did I realize how lonesome I would be if Hubs weren't here. So lonesome that I could almost complete a 1000-piece puzzle in the course of 5 days.
It was quiet. Ransom doesn't talk. I always had the TV on.
I also always had the lights on. One light in almost every room so that I could go through the house without walking into a dark room. It's just kinda freaky.
Now, I realize how much I need Hubs. He's my best friend. He's who I talk to everyday. He's who I depend on everyday. He's who I rely on.
