Day 22 - Alone Time Behaviour

31 Day Blog Challenge - March


What I Do When I'm Alone

When Nick and I lived in an apartment together I was alone quite often. He worked crazy hours, Sidney was still napping twice a day and all through the night, and I didn't have many friends near by. Most of the time I absolutely loved it. 

Now I live at my mom's house and it seems like I am never ever home alone. It bothers me a lot sometimes. I miss being able to crank my music, cleaning without someone around, watching my favourite movies and TV shows uninterrupted and laying in my sunny bed reading books and magazines. 

Because of my lack of alone time I feel like I'm going crazy. I'm always tired, I get really irritable and generally just unhappy. Hopefully one day soon I will get one full day just to myself with no one in the house.

I actually wrote a post a while back about being an introvert and a parent on January 17, 2013.

 Other Favourite Alone Time Activities:

  • Going for walks, just to think
  • Writing in my journals
  • Blogging and surfing the internet
  • Cruising the library by myself, without someone nagging me to hurry up
  • And just doing nothing and thinking
What are your hobbies?

  1. When I am alone I am usually fixing my website/blog, on pinterest or maybe reading. I love going for walks but it has been a very loooong winter...
    Stopping by from the Fun Friday Blog hop :)

    1. I know what you mean about it being a long winter! Last year around this time we were out in sweaters, but it's freezing right now.

      Blogging, pinterest and reading are three of my favourite pastimes too!

  2. Hi Cole! Just hopped over and I actually work at home so I'm alone a lot. Although it feels like I don't get 'me' time despite being technically 'alone' a lot. I'm still working so I like your suggestion on going on a walk. I might try and do that more often. PS - Sidney is a doll and I hope you'll link up with my Easter Basket Showcase link party coming up on March 28th. I'd love to have you!

    1. Hello!

      Thank you :)

      Walking is a great way to clear my head, especially for a break from working.

  3. Found your blog from the blog hop and am following now. :) I'm a brand new mama to an 11 month old and it's so hard to find alone time.. I agree. :) I also love the idea of just doing.. nothing!

    1. Doing nothing can be great if you can find the time! I know that lately I haven't been able to.

  5. Me time? I am still waiting. It can be difficult at times with a full house but I think over all there are more pros than cons. I love having Sidney here to play with Faith. Right now they are running in circles giggling and just being plain silly. They are so cute. I have you to keep me company and do things together and share in the household chores.

    1. There are definitely more pros to a full house. Perhaps in the summer time when everyone is more eager to go out.


I truly enjoy reading all of your comments! I read every one of them, and do my best to reply to each of you!
