We have had company for the last week. The kind of company that is there when you get home from work, until late at night. Don't get me wrong, I like company. But, I LOVE my alone time. I'm not what people would call a hermit or anything like that. Me and Hubby like to have a little fun now and then, but we can't do it 24/7. We like to visit people, but, I like to go home after a while. I don't want to have to "entertain" all the time. I feel like I have to be "on" when I'm around people. There are times that I just run out of things to say. (don't believe that one, do you? It's true.) Then what? I don't want to sit and stare at someone. To me, that's uncomfortable. Maybe that's where I think I need to come up with something to say, hence, the "entertaining."
Another thing I don't like, is going to someone's house and they are watching tv instead of having a conversation with you. If I wanted to watch tv, I would watch it at my house. The art of visiting is lost. A visit is just that, a visit. If I haven't seen you for a while, please have the manners to talk to me. But, if you come to my house and after 4 days of talking I finally run out of something to say, it might just be time for you to go home.
I'm sorry this sounds like I'm complaining. I don't mean it to. I really like people. But after so long, I need a break to rejuvenate myself. Just a small one. Then I'll be fine. I use to think that everyone had to be an extrovert, always out going, always having to have people around you. As I got older I realize it's okay to not really want people around you all the time.Maybe that means I'm growing up. NNNAAAAAAAAAAA
