Jen's Thoughts

I know you all have been dying for me to reveal my inner most thoughts. So I decided to reveal what I was thinking last night and this morning.



My sister called me last night about 8:30/9pm. She was going to pick up my niece from an activity. What was i doing? I was already in bed reading a book about to fall asleep. Life can not get any more boring and mundane than that. So I got to thinking about myself and and my life. I decided something.........ready for my epiphany..........it is ground breaking..........

I am a boring person with no excitement/drama in my life AND I think I really like it that way. Shocking I know. I have no desire to be out and about at 9am. No late night Starbucks for me. I enjoy the peace and quiet of my household at night when the kiddies are asleep. I wonder if I will like this much quietness when all my children have left the house and I am alone ALWAYS. I may seek out the night life at Starbucks. But for now......know that I can be found in bed, reading and enjoying my time.....night after night after night.

Another thing I like is to putter around my house and never leave it for days. I have no problem with this. I have no desire to adventure into the world(aka. Town), meet and greet people and be social. My house is like my refuge. Am I weird , depressed, antisocial or just have a mundane life? I guess it doesn't matter. I like my boring, old self.

I think wanting to stay home, enjoy the quietness after sending 3 boys to school, homework and all the other household responsibilities you have is rewarding. You should definitely reward yourself and enjoy yourself in a calming environment. Some people like to be out and about a lot, and some people can do without it. I think both are fine. Not to compare, but I have a SIL who homeschools and quite honestly, I wonder how she does it since she is never home. She is frazzled all the time and really uses outside pleasures, shopping, socializing, etc as a way to escape. But here you are with yourself. How wonderful that is that you can take the time for yourself and come to these thoughts. To be quite honest, I might do a dinner now and then, but by 9:30ish I'm in bed with a book. There is never a moment that a book is not not my nightstand. Unfortunately for me, I am up at 5:00 and by time I lay down to read, the lids start to fall and lose that time...Good for you Jen!! (I had always said you were one of the wisest people I knew!)

I love the quiet and being alone. I have gone a week at a time without leaving my house, and it doesn't bother me one bit. Of course, once I go out, I enjoy that, too.

I definitely don't think you are boring!!! Maybe when our kids are teenagers, we'll meet up at Starbucks at 9pm - let's face it, we won't be able to sleep that early because we'll be too worried about what they are doing! Might as well follow them around town and stop in for a latte while we're at it!! LOL

I'm the same way...I love my peace when my Monkeys are all in bed. There is nothing better than curling up in bed with a good book!
