If I Lived Alone

March 14, 2012

I would turn lights on in the morning, instead of using my phone as a flashlight for fear of waking up a still sleeping boyfriend.

I would blast the Beatles iheartradio station at 6 AM.

I would leave the ironing board out in the middle of the living room.

I would almost never turn the TV on.

I would gladly allow my mom to cook dinner for me every night and maybe even take me out to breakfast on Sunday.

I would not consult my financial situation before spending money on frivolous things.  My sister and I needed these.


If I lived alone.

I wouldn’t have anyone to share sunset owl-seeing runs with.

I wouldn’t be able to show off my wacko dance moves.

I would wake up several times a night because I accidentally rolled onto the freezing empty side of the bed.

I would kinda feel like sleeping with the light on.

My apartment would be just a little too quiet when I came home at night.

And I would laugh a lot less while I was there.

It’s been nice having my apartment to myself for the past few days, but.

I’m really glad Joey is back home.

    Nice whale shirt!

    My bf is leaving for a 2.5 day interview in a few days and it’ll be really weird! He’s been unemployed so I’m used to him being home 24/7.

    When I first saw the title of your post, I instantly started singing “If I were a boy” by Beyonce. And then continued to read your post to the beat of that song. Now I’ll probably have that song stuck in me head the rest of the day.

    Oh I can totally relate to this. I have moments when I wish I could have things they way they were when I was single/kidless just for some peace. Then when I do have the rare hubby and kids gone weekend I am soooo bored! The quiet is really nice the first day/night, and I take a nice long bath, read a good book for hours, grab sushi, etc., but by the next day I am really wishing that someone would come home 🙂

    Hi! I just found your blog and I really connected with your about me page! I live alone now, but I’m moving in with two other girls in April and I can’t wait! It’s been way too lonely living alone, even if sometimes it’s really nice to do exactly what you want 🙂

    Aww, this is too sweet! It’s funny how much of a difference having another person around the house can be…the bf usually comes over on Friday night and stays until Monday morning, but we don’t exactly live close enough or have predictable enough work schedules to see each other during the week. It definitely makes the weeks go by slow and the weekends fast tho!

    Love the rings!
