I am normally a social butterfly and I was invited out with friends tonight – they had no plan.. just hanging out – but I said I was busy. But really I just wanted to stay home, have a glass of wine, and watch SYTTD…
I feel like I am becoming more of a homebody since I have been engaged… and I am having a hard time accepting thats okay. need Bees words of wisdom.
PS. Dont get me wrong.. I still love the girl time but does it have to be every weekend?

You are not bad . It is important to make time for yourself and still take time for your friends – make sure you keep a balance

Yes, you are bad…….
for even thinking you might be bad! LOL
Sometimes you just don’t feel like going out. And you are busy- you are having a glass of wine, on the bee, and watching SYTTD.

Nothing wrong… I think that it’s pretty natural to start shifting your balance when you’re preparing for marriage.. b/c well that takes time… and you still need time for YOU. <– taking care of you is important to be able to take care of a marriage & later family… along with friends, work, and just life as a whole.
I think it’s just like when married couples have kids that they make a monthly date night so they still are able to have that but still be able to take care of the family like it needs.
I do think that every weekend going out would definitley become straining and that maybe bi-weekly or even as things get really hectic in planning and re-adjusting to married life monthly would be appropriate.
Don’t beat yourself up for needing downtime 😉

PFFT I am, at this very moment, blowing off a girl’s night to have the world’s biggest glass of champagne/pear vodka, watch girly movies, and cook myself a fabulous dinner while my husband is on a camping trip with the boys.
Sometimes, you just need some pamper time to yourself to indulge and have some space. And there’s nothing wrong with that! 🙂

@Mrs.Candi: I had to laugh when I read this, because I am doing the exact same thing right now! I am watching SYTTD and am holding a glass of wine as we speak. Fiance is on a business trip and I had plans with a girlfriend but she’s sick so she had to take a rain check.
I’ve been exhausted this last week–it’s nice to have a little me-time and just relax. Everybody needs time to themselves! I like to have some time to recharge and then make some plans to look forward to next week. That way I can just chill out now, but I don’t have to feel like I’m being anticsocial!

Well, I’m a homebody in general, so I don’t think you’re bad! 🙂 I think everyone needs some time to yourself. During the week, you probably stay home because you’re at work all day. So the weekends are when you can relax. There’s no problem having some weekends to yourself. But if I do that, I usually just tell my friends, “eh I’m going to stay home tonight. Come here if you wanna watch a movie or somethng… but I’m not going out!” 🙂
