I'm home alone this weekend.....

  1. ...and loving every minute of it. Hubby went to Philly with some freinds, my son is away on business, and my daughter took the kids for two days. So I am sitting here at the computer at midnight in my comfy old robe that my husband threatens to throw away every time he sees me in it. I had pizza delivered for supper, and didn't do any dishes. I get a weekend like this two or three times a year, and I really look forward to them. I love my family, and am glad to see them when they come home, but times like this really help me recharge. Even as a child, I liked to have time away from everybody else. I just really appreciate my solitude.

    That sounds incredibly relaxing. I totally understand about the robe. I had a pink mu-mu from college that was soooo comfortable! I still miss it!

    Enjoy your day, you deserve it!!

    oh enjoy yourself! I too love the family, BUT also look forward to the two times a year when I have the house completely to myself for a week.
    I get to eat when I want to, eat what I want, no answering to anybody but myself. Enjoy being a hermit while you can.

    I have always enjoyed solitude. Gives you a chance to think and reflect on your life. It's nice to just do what you want to do...isn't it?

    I agree with Kayzee! I am not afforded that opportunity so I drive to school alone. I could car pool, but that hour each way is good for my soul.

    I am going to D.C., NYC, Boston, Maine, and Niagara Falls with my best friend in May...can't wait to get away from my family!!!! (sorry family, love you to death, but....)

    Like others here, I love my family dearly....but need my personal space....I would love to have a weekend with no responsibilities and just to watch out for myself.....

    My husband has a hard time relating to this concept. Not that he is a big people person, but since he pretty much works alone in his job (farmer) he doesn't understand that when I get home I want peace and quiet. After dealing with people for 12 non-stop hours, I need my space. It is like my brain needs to have a time-out and reorganize itself before I can deal with people again....
