I am the type of person who doesn’t like to be myself. Even if Wes is in the other room working on something and I am watching TV, it’s just nice to have someone there, it feels less lonely. So, when he bought a plane ticket to Michigan to see his friends for 5 days, I was less than excited to spend those 5 days at home, alone.
Luckily for me my parents decided that they needed to see my uncle’s new farm that same weekend! They came down late Friday night and stayed Saturday night after our adventure to the farm and left very early Sunday morning. This left me with Thursday night, most of Friday night, Sunday, and Monday all to myself. The first night, I will admit, I was lonely. Sophie and I cuddled up and watched Harry Potter in bed. Every creaky noise I heard freaked me out and I slept with the TV on all night. I did not like it. Friday and Saturday night my parents were here with me so I didn’t feel so alone. But, by late Sunday night I had kind of settled in to the quiet. I may have even learned a little bit about myself…maybe being alone wasn’t nearly as bad as I had imagined.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am SO glad I have a husband. It’s nice to have someone to come home to after a hard days work and to have someone to cuddle up with to watch a movie. It’s nice to fall asleep beside the one you love…but I did enjoy a little alone time. As much as I thought I hated it, it can actually be a little bit nice. I read, I watched what I wanted to on TV, I went to sleep when I wanted to, I listened to my country music and I listened to it loudly…I got to have a little me time. I even took some blog pictures of myself (see above)….I kind of had the single girl life for a couple of days.
I guess the moral of my story is that being alone can seem scary, but I think that every once in a while it is good for you. I had a chance to really think about things and do things that I like, but don’t always do when there are people there. I felt “free as a bird”, if you will. (See how I tied that in there? That whole bird thing? Like the shirt….(PS: I also wore this shirt here in an entirely different way….)
Well, as free as I might have felt, I am still SO glad Wes came home last night. It’s nice to have another person around…Are you the type who always has to be around someone or do you enjoy your alone time?
