Hiding from home

I'm sitting here at work, not because I still have work to do, but because sometimes, I just need a few moments to myself.  No traffic, no runs to the store because I forgot the fennel seed for tonight's recipe, no voices that say "hey babe" (DH) or "mommmmm" (DS, SD) and "woof woof" (the Shih Tzus).  I just want to sit here, play on the internet, consider hamburgers & french fries for dinner rather than that disht I'd planned on and chill. 

I just get tired sometimes, and today is one of those times. 

Don't get me wrong, I adore my family!  DH is the sweetest thing walking the earth, my DS and SD are great people, and my Shih Tzus, well they are downright FLUFFY.  I'm just venting...like we ALL do sometimes. 

As you were.

I joined a gym to get some alone time after work. Half the time I find myself going to the Starbucks next door to the gym to read my book and browse the Internet instead of working out.

Been there. Sometimes I'll take a drive when I can afford the extra gas for my gas guzzling SUV lol. I've also told DH you have the kids and locked our bedroom door and watched tv.

I wish I could do that too.  Seems like the only break I get is the drive to and from work.  I dont think their is nothing wrong with wanting alone time.

I know how you feel.  I found myself in a parking lot recently reading a book!

I'm guilty of taking the looong way home. I love my family dearly but sometimes I just want to put the windows down and listen to the wind rush through my soul on a country road...it feels so good!
