eep. while I can understand your hesitation (I am also a queen of getting social cold-feet last minute and backing out of things) I definitely would not back out. As someone who vacations and depends on a sitter for my dog, I’d be devastated and really stressed if I had to find a replacement last minute.

I would just see if your Fiance or sister or a friend would stay with you. Even if your Fiance is working nights, you could watch movies or something.

When I’m freaked out at night, I turn on lots of lights and music and tvs. LOL. not economical or environmentally friendly, but what can ya do.

I had to do this two years ago. I agreed to house sit for a family member while they were out of town for a week. Well, I ended up finally getting a full time night shift job. Their house was a good 45 minutes from where I was working and because it was night shift my Fiance and I would miss seeing eachother for the whole week.

But, I committed to house sitting. So house sit I did! They ended up coming home early because of an illness; so I didn’t get paid all the money promised (which sucks) but I understand it. 

My main point is. You committed to doing this. Take a few books, DVDs w/laptop and some ear plugs (for the train). It might be terrible; it might not be that bad. Either way you committed yourself to doing it.

as you have already agreed to house sit i think you should follow through and do it – its only for  a week or so im guessing, so its not forever
