The family is out for a short time

I passed on the chance to go.

Work all day, most of it on my feet,

besides I need my time alone.

I use to spend alot of time with just me.

And I have to say I liked it, maybe too much.

Now I have someone around all the time.

That is the hardest part I think.

For those of you that don't know,

I had a stalker last year and moved.

Started a new life, everything strange

getting to know new people, finding a job.

Things that I thought I was ready for

and still know that I made the right choice.

There are times that I wonder..........

well here I am finally all alone.

Awwwwwwwwww this feels so good

music playing with out head phones.

Writting what ever I want to write

don't have to feel guilty at all.

I don't do guilty all that well

as you may have already figured out.

Wow..... this feels really good

I am glad that I have this time.

I hope to kick out some really good work.

My mind can just sort of float

stopping on a topic here

maybe a topic there..... what ever I want to do.

Oh, yes! Space and time to yourself is so important. I have the opposite problem..I never see my sweetie :( But, I do enjoy my time. Just relax and enjoy it!

Renee, This is so true! As much as Andy and I love each other and enjoy spending time together, I'm always ready for him to go back to work and let me have some time alone at the end of him having a week's vacation or shut-down at work. Which reminds me, his two week holiday shut-down is coming up. EEEEK! Thank God he'll have band rehearsals then I can write without him peeking over my shoulder and making me NERVOUS! LOL Thanks for posting this one.

Thanks for sharing your feelings. I know how much it means to be able to have that quiet time alone. It's really nice to have a safe and loving place where one can hang one's hat. I hope you never regret the decision that you ade last year when you gave up everything you had to find a lace where you can feel safe. Keep writing and sharing with all who visit this great site.
