All By Myself

Filed under: family, life, parenting — Wizus @ 11:07 pm

Great title, no?  Now I have that song stuck in my head, here are the lyrics (by Eric Carmen) so you can sing it with me: 

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin alone
I think of all the friends Ive known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobodys home

All by myself
Dont wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Dont wanna live
All by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Dont wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Dont wanna live
All by myself anymore

If you made it this far…thank you for sticking it out with me. You see, I am actually all by myself!  In my house!  I know, that sounds like a weird thing to get excited about but for us moms this is a strange and rare occurrence.  I have been a mom for 22 years, more than half my life, and I am not used to this at all!

So far, I watched grown-up TV shows during primetime. I had rootbeer and Doritos for dinner (without having to share!).  I picked up all the toys around the house and nothing took its place.

I tried to take a nice long bubblebath but the animals keep sticking their paws under the door…so I let them in and the cats sat on the toilet staring at me and the dog kept peeking over the tub’s rim to check on me.  That was a bust.

I hate to say this out loud but…I am kinda bored.
