I so love this time of year! I love the holidays, the snow, even the fast pace life becomes.
So why this year am I hiding? Not wanting to be noticed. Even not visiting with my dearest friends. This is the first time I have let myself be noticed in days.
I ask myself what is going on. Is this because I am a new empty nester? Is it because life has changed so much the last few months? Is it due to my health issues?
The thing is I have had sever depression in the past, this is not like that.
I am enjoying the quite. I love sitting in my chair and just looking outside.
Is it wrong to enjoy the quiet so much that you have to adjust to someone coming home. One of my sons stopped in to visit today and it was all I could not to ask him to leave. I was so disappointed in myself for my reaction to his visit I had to call an apologize to him.

    • You know, this seems to be the norm lately. Almost everyone I know is in a funk of some kind. There have been several ladies blogging about it recently, I have said I believe it’s a sign of our times.
      With rampant unemployment, foreclosures, crime, it’s no wonder we are feeling melancholy.
      I know for me right now I’m not working and I so enjoy when I am home alone. I enjoy the peace and the background sounds, but I don’t have to make conversation with anyone. Maybe you are realizing how nice it is to have no one to answer to.

    • I wouldn’t stress about it right now, sit back and enjoy the peace. You know the world is just outside your door when your ready for more.
      I have felt that way too and for me it just meant a change was happening within.
      I am probably more at peace now than at any point in my life so who knows maybe your need to hide is just trying to find inner peace...
