Q: What does I can go home at a decent time. mean?
A: Decent means reasonable in this case. When placed with time--that is "decent time"--a decent time usually means the earliest (or maybe convenient) time or the time you are willing to stay until.

Getting home at a decent (or reasonable) time.
I'd like to leave at a decent time.
From now on, I want to go to bed at a decent time.

For example, for you, going home at 8 PM is going home at a decent time, as opposed to going home at 10 PM, which is not. In that case, going home at 10 PM is something that you wouldn't like to do.

For some people going to bed at a decent time is important because they want to get a full night's rest. A decent time for them could also be a range of times and not a specific time. Let's say anywhere between 7-9 PM is a decent time for them to go to bed. Any time after 9 PM is just an inconvenience, and therefore, not a decent time.
Q: What does "back home" in 808 mean?

Based on your description these two seem the most fitting.
You can replace "in a while" and "for a while" with "in/for a long time" or "in/for ages"

If you want to sound more exclamatory you could also say:

If you specifically mean meeting with friends "socialize" is also a good verb:
It's been so long since I last socialized with friends.

Other questions about "Home"

Is this sentence natural?
A: I left home 30 minutes earlier than usual this morning.
Thanks to that, I could study English at the park near my office before work.

It felt so nice to be able to do what I wanted to do today.

"What I have to do" is what you are obliged to do... what you must do. So the third sentence is probably about what you "wanted" to do.

Q: Which do you think is more common.
--------
1. I must[have to] go home before midnight.
2. I must[have to] get home before midnight.
3. I must[have to] be home before midnight.
----------
Thanks.
A: For one thing, it is absolutely so much more common to say "have to" than "must" here. I don't think I'd ever use "must" in this sense of "have to" unless I was being very formal or emphatic in specific ways. I only use "must" with 'be' or 'have been' to kind of describe an assumption I think is certain, like "That must have been very hard for you" or "There must be some kind of accident up ahead" or even "You must be out of your mind."
To try to actually answer your question, 1 is slightly different than 2 and 3 and 2 is very slightly different than 3. 1 = I have to leave before midnight. 2 and 3 = I have to arrive at home before midnight. In my opinion, even though 2 and 3 are almost identical, 3 implies you want to arrive home earlier than 2 does because to "be" somewhere is a longer, more continuous action than to "get" there. So I think these are expressing different curfews (12:30, 12:00, 11:30), but adjusted for that, 2 is the most common construction, 3 is almost as common, 1 is not as common.
But if I tell my kid "be home before midnight," it's technically fine if she rolls in at 11:58, but I'm really expecting her closer to 11:30, 11:35, 11:40.

Q: I stayed at home all day expect to go to the grocery store. I spent time cooking and doing embroidery. Then I take a nap for one and a half hours maybe because I was tired from walking a lot yesterday. Does this sound natural?
