Writer’s Workshop:What I Miss About Being Alone

Time © by Moyan_Brenn

It has been a long while since I really have time alone. Ever since the kids were born it has been really been difficult to get time alone. Every day I have to steal micro seconds out of the jam packed schedule just to get a breather. It is a real luxury to be able to sit back on the couch and watch a bit of television. Gone were the days where I could do what I like and set my own schedule.

Here is a list of things which I miss about being alone

  1.  I miss  being able to curl up in a chair and read a book from start to end.
  2. Getting enough sleep.
  3. Being able to enjoy a leisure meal.
  4. Getting to finish my meal on my own without sharing it with someone and  end up still hungry after an hour.
  5. Having the TV on AXN or FOX instead of Disney Junior or Cartoon Network all the time.
  6. Being able to shop for clothes  without rushing through the shop
  7. Enjoying the quiet. No shouting , screaming or whining in the background.
  8. Spending as much time as I want on my hobbies.
  9. Getting time to sit and relax.
  10. Not having to have loads of laundry or chores to be done daily.

Do you miss being alone? 

Do you prefer where you are now or rather be somewhere you were before?
