Solitude

Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to be alone? and I mean for ALL Day.

Today, I am having one of those days. I would be totally okay with holing myself up in our bedroom, snuggled up under the covers, doing a variety of {alone} activities.

Napping

Reading

Watching endless hours of 24

Blogging on the laptop

Crafting

Folding Laundry

I seriously wish I could have done that all day today. I'm not really in a talking kind of mood. I just wish to sit and be quiet for awhile.

Unfortunately, Saturday means college football. Don't get me wrong. I am a huge college football fan. More specifically SEC football fan. Even more specifically, a Florida Gator's fan. But in our house, college football doesn't just mean 1 or two games. Saturday means that we all sit around in the family room/loft all. day.

Together.

So, when you are looking for a little solitude, I wouldn't count on it on a Football Saturday.

{if, like me, you desperately need some alone time, you too will get good at sneaking away, avoiding all contact, and silencing your phone. Even if it is only during halftime.}

Ahhhhhh, sweet silence.

I do need a little alone time every now and then, but after a couple hours I'm usually ready for human contact! But I know what you mean, I love just reading or napping, or zoning out with the TV for a while. Sometimes you just need some down time to do nothing and let your mind rest.

I love those days when I'm actually able to get the day to myself. Crafting and napping and watching movies and just... breathing. So nice!

I totally know what you mean. I am an introvert and can be a homebody, and I just like being by myself sometimes! Sorry it was football day so you probably didn't get much alone time! Maybe today you will since it's Monday :-)
