I Might Be A Hermit

Ok, first of all (she said defensively), I don't feel like I owe it to
my friends, family or the public in general to date, fuck or marry
someone on anyone else's schedule, if EVER. I mean, the fucking
thing I will do in the future at various points and times because
lets face it, I'm not going to spend the rest of my life celibate. But
as for the rest of it, I'm getting just a little bit tired of people acting
strange when all I do during the weekend is stay home, in my house.

First of all, I paid damn good money for this house. It has a view
of the lake for God's sake. I never thought I'd be able to afford a
house like this. It's a house worth spending some time in. Secondly,
for some reason, I just haven't felt like going out lately. It might
have something to do with the ungodly amount of extra bullshit I've
been having to do since Dylan started school. You know, band mom,
help with school projects and the like. A lot of times by the time
I finally get to go home, I don't even want to answer the damn phone.
So you know, I don't. (The photos below of the view from my window
were taken when it was almost dark and hardly do the view justice,
but you get the idea.)

And would you like to know what really annoys me? I hope so, cuz
I'm gonna tell you. What really annoys me is that the same people
cluck clucking their tongues over my lack of weekend activity are
the very people who told me, lo only a very short few months past
not to go looking for romance, that IT would find ME. So which is
it boys and girls? Or are you just not happy with ANYTHING I do?
And come to think of it, who asked you anyway?

I've heard it all before. Let's face it....even if you were ready and willing to up and get married rightthisverymoment, there are so few 'quality' spousal candidates out there. And that I know, because I didn't think I would ever get married again. It's not something you can or should rush.

Hey, if I had a house on the lake, I'd probably never go anywhere either! My aunt and uncle have a house on the lake, and I swear, every time I go over there I never want to leave! Tell the peanut gallery to f*** off!

Thanks for letting me see out your window. If I had a view like that I would never go out. Beautiful. As far as going out or staying in that is your business and no one elses.

Hey Syd. Found you and am enjoying your blog here. Nice to see you again. Took me forever to figure out how to get to comment on the blog. Hope this works.

God bless,

I'm not sure if I'll ever get married again, my first marriage was such a dismal failure... I'm not even looking right now, I enjoy my time by myself to much at this point.

But who knows? Maybe later...

39 isn't too old to feel like a kid again, you know?

Hi Syd,
I got your really long email, but I'm still figuring out what to do. I'll write to you soon about it. Some things have changed. I don't have a lot of time tonight, but maybe this weekend I'll fill you in.
