Absolutely. Kinda hard to phrase to FI though.

hell YES, i love having nights alone. i can watch all the foreign films i want without being interrupted, i don’t have to cook dinner, i can spend my time working on my projects in peace, and i love talking to my mom on the phone when i have the house alone. i can gossip, vent, and just be silly with her without my FI hearing every word. i love spending time alone but i do NOT like sleeping alone.

I’m enjoying an evening alone right now… DH just left to play hockey. I’m the same way in that I love spending time with him and miss him when he’s gone, but I sure do LOVE my alone time. (I grew up with 6 brothers and sisters… alone time didn’t exist for me until I went to college!) I’m watching bad tv, eating ice cream for dinner, and hanging out on weddingbee. It’s glorious. But I do look forward to when he comes home and kisses me goodnight 🙂

Sigh what is alone time?  Even if DH is gone like he was this past weekend for a golf tournament, I had our son. I don’t recall a time here in the last year that I actually had the house for more than a few hours to myself.

I do too. My FI understands though because I love to scrapbook and he loves to play video game and do guy things like airsoft. We like the time apart because its activities the other person doesn’t enjoy. We enjoy doing things like movies and stuff that aren’t fun without each other too though. Its all about balance 🙂

I’m all alone right now… sitting in a dark living room, watching netflix and browsing the bee and it is sooooo peaceful.   I love the few minutes I get of quiet like this. 


But with that said, I just recently got custody of my niece.  So went from not having my own kids to being a full time “parent” to a teenage girl.  yap yap yap blah blah blah

And FI and I are together ALL the time!  So this is heaven!!!

I love a bit of alone time.  I get to watch whatever I want and treat myself to a junky dinner if I’m lucky.

I love it too! I can talk to my friends for hours without being interrupted or feeling like I have to include DH. I can eat badly. I can watch trashy TV.

The weird thing is DH is so easy going that he doesn’t care if I do any of this stuff. It’s just the feeling being completely selfish that’s nice every now and then.

Ofcourse…are there people who don’t???

I think it’s both healthy and necessary. You can’t be tied to the hip 24/7.
