Am I ok?

During breaks from school, I like to hang at the house. Somedays, I watch movies, plan on the computer, pitter around doing house things..but, others I just hang read and watch movies. I go days without leaving my 'pajamas'. Every few days, I go out to store, hang with a friend, or visit my mom. But, I love to be home. DH is home alot, too. Doing basically the things I am, but with a male twisit. It seems everyone else is out doing and going. According to Facebook people are non stop shopping, cooking for parties, traveling, visiting oodles and oodles of family. Makes me feel like a looser at home. But i want to be

Break

I could have written your exact same post. Winter break is just that for me, a break! I've been at my parents house for a week doing absolutely nothing!! I've been spending my days napping, playing with my nephew, cooking, and lounging around. It's almost 1 o'clock here and I'm still in my PJs. I'm getting ready to watch football with my Dad and I'll probably take a nap this afternoon. I went shopping with my Mom on the 26th and went to dinner and a movie with a friend last night. I'll head home tomorrow and do the same at my house until I go back to work on Wednesday. I feel incredibly rested and ready to return to work. I'm glad that you enjoyed your break your style

Except, I don't wear pj's unless I am sick which I have been nearly the entire Break!
I like to stay at home most of the time. I don't know if that will change when I retire or not. I figure the enjoyment is a good thing because owning this house is why I am working the extra 5 years. (Not that 5 years extra is enough to pay for it or anything. )

Right there with you!!!

I LOVE it! To me, it's one of the perks of being a teacher. I seriously need my down time. Without it, I would not be rejuvinated enough to return to work.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Your vacation sounds like heaven to me. I am a homebody and an introvert at heart. I have kids and they're the ones that force me out of the house. My perfect vacation would be time at home by myself. I love my family, but cherish my alone time.

I could be a hermit very easily...well, as long as I had internet, TV and/or books...not necessarily all three are required. I gave in and went to town yesterday but it was just to get another thing of yarn for my mock knitting...

Isn't that what breaks are for??? If not, I've been confused for quite some time
Is it wrong that I'm dreading having to get dressed and go to the doctor tomorrow? Well, the doctor part, but not the 'going to Michaels to buy a loom' part!!

I'll shut up now. I posted the first time just over a week ago and now several are doing this or are at least interested. I've answered all my private messages and just did a kind of compilation post for ♥theColts. I knew I was out of control so I was kinda glad missvicki77 got on board so quickly too. I am loving it but really don't have anything new to add yet.

Then, again, I only know two stitches so far and haven't finished my cinch bag yet.

If anyone needs more info though, please feel free to post again or PM.

I'm with ya! I did my fair share of holiday baking and prep, and the rest of the week has been for rejuvenating and trying to "get ahead" of my household chores. I haven't gotten out of my PJs today, and I like it that way!

Just got home from church, put on my sweats and told DH the only thing I have planned for today is playing on the computer and reading a new book!! Normally I would be working late, going to watch DD cheer, other DD run or play soccer, DS swim meets OR taking him to practice a couple times a week in the next town over (30 mins away)!! I love just being home. With no visitors !! I may even slip in a nap today

I call it being a homebody. I haven't felt well at all so I have more of an excuse than usual, but just think about how much you pay in rent or mortgage, heat, electricity, taxes etc. These homes cost us a lot and we should feel free to enjoy them when we can! JMHO

I haven't been out of bed before 9 (usually closer to 10!) the entire break. At first I was a little upset b/c DH took off the break too, and I was afraid he'd ruin my 'break' time. He usually likes to go nonstop. However, after 15 years of me trying to teach him to relax, he's actually had a couple of pajama days too. He won't admit to enjoying them, but I know he secretly did!

that we live in a society that makes people question themselves for enjoying their homes and families.

I often think about how ironic it is that so many people spend loads of money on beautiful homes only to be out and about constantly.

I hope you have a restful break and do not worry about this again.

I'm a member of that club too! I love sitting around doing nothing all day..or week. I feel that I give 200% to school so when I'm on break it's "down time" for me. My DS goes back to school on Wednesday so I'll have total alone "down time"

I've been home since December 14, the gate has been closed, and I haven't been off the property. DH has gone to the grocery twice, but for the most part he's been home too.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying being home. We don't need to go somewhere else...here is perfect. We don't need to see anything else...everything I want to see is right here. If I want something, UPS will bring it to me. I have plenty of toys, plenty of computers, and my best friend to play with. I'm just fine right here.

It was go go go till Christmas day. Since then I've left the house twice once to get cat litter and a couple groceries and yesterday I did a little shopping with a friend, saw a movie, and went to dinner.

I was super excited to get back in sweats and hit the couch!

As for today... I'm thinking about doing some grading or lesson plans but also planning some new recipes and hit the grocery store so I won't have to leave again for the next week!

when I am not working I like to stay home too. I am tired of talking and being around people so I enjoy just staying home with my dogs and relaxing. I've gone to the grocery store 3 times, shopping twice, the vet, and to visit my mom once during my break.

I spent Christmas Day with two different groups of family members. This past week I have been vegging out. I will spend NYE and New Year's Day with family but in between those days I have read, lounged, watched stuff on Netflix, napped, done things around my house and gone to the gym. I enjoy the down time and if you enjoy it, then it's fine.

Yesterday I stayed in PJs all day. Then took my bath last night and changed into clean PJs. It was a glorious day!

I read, watched movies, napped, played online, enjoyed my dog...

I did get three loads of laundry washed and a new shower curtain hung. That was my big accomplishment for the day.

I used to love shopping. Not any more. I just shop when I need to.

Holiday time needs to be enjoyed in any way you choose. That's what makes it a holiday.

Reading this post has helped me, because I feel so guilty when I sit around and do nothing on break. I feel like I should be cooking, shopping, or cleaning. I've been sick with a bad cold and don't really feel like doing anything. Why do we kick ourselves for resting?

I especially appreciated chickpea's words!

Wow! I feel like a have company..my own team. I feel the need to tell you that I do love, love to go to work. When I am on...I am super on. I am extremly social and often the 'life of the party' for kids and coworkers. I have many friends at school and we laugh a lot. But, when I have a break....I really take a break.

Just wondered if I was 'not right'.. Thanks for making me feel ok to just enjoy what I enjoy..

You just described me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE to be home. We almost never have weekend plans either. We run so much during the week with work, activities, working out, etc...that I need some down time. My DH doesn't understand how I can spend so much time at home. My kids are the same way. In fact, it's almost 4 pm and DS and I are still in our PJs!

I need my downtime at home to be a good mom, wife, and teacher. This is what makes me a positive and happy person in other areas of my life!

I've always been a homebody. If I don't need to go somewhere, I don't go. I was home Thursday, Friday, and Saturday except for a couple of hours Friday when I drove 3 miles to my mom's house for supper.

The longest I've ever stayed home was two weeks. We had snow, and I just stayed put.

You are not a loser! You are a winner! You are comfortable with yourself and enjoy your own company, that's a good thing. I love being home alone in my pjs. If people want to be social. They should be. Teachers are "on" all day. When I am on vacation, I like to turn it "off" and just be. My favorite days are spent in bed watching tv, maybe reading, going on PT and seeing what's happening. It makes me feel great!
Good for you! Enjoy your quiet. Happy New Year!

I prefer to stay home and only go out when I feel the need. I enjoy being home and doing whatever I feel like. I've been doing much the same as other people. Playing on the computer, reading, watching tv and generally doing little things around the house. I have been doing alot of looking at ideas for my craft space and hope to start fixing it up soon. I pretty much feel like if I'm not going anywhere I don't need to get dressed and I'm starting to feel like I should purchase some more lounging around clothing, it may be more important than work clothing.

There is nothing wrong with liking to relax. Our jobs are very high stress and we go, go, go for weeks and months on end! I have been sleeping really late every morning and am usually in my nightie by 8 PM every night since we got out of school. Keep in mind too that some of those FB posts, no, a lot of those FB posts, are exaggerations!

Alone, not lonely

Nice to know I'm not alone, so to speak. Since spending Christmas with family, I have been in since Wednesday, except to go to a pre-scheduled dental cleaning appointment on Friday.

I have been catching up on things at home, like TV, PT, FB, WWF. I even cooked real dinners two nights, now that the leftovers are running low.

I finally did a little schoolwork today, but have plenty more left for tomorrow, and the next day. MAYBE I'll go out for a while tomorrow, maybe not.

I go back to reality on Wednesday morning!

I'm exactly the same way. I prefer to be home with a book, the Internet, or sometimes a project or craft. I talk to one of my sisters every day and sometimes multiple times a day, but other than that, I don't really even feel the need to communicated verbally with anyone unless I choose to. I can't recall ever being bored.
I usually feel like the oddball, because most of my friends say that if they don't get out of the house and have something to do every day, they go stir crazy. Not my style at all. Glad to hear I'm in good company!

I have found MY PEOPLE! I love to be at home! Unfortunately, I'm not very good at relaxing, but there's plenty to do so I never get bored. I consider myself my own best company. I went for a walk today to the store because it was sunny, which it hasn't been here for awhile. That was it.

I had to run some errands last Saturday. After my third stop I thought to myself, "I can't wait to get home!" I looked at the clock and I had just been out of the house for an hour and 15 minutes. That's a shame!

You're okay.

I went to Fabricland today with a friend and realized it was the first time I had been outside since about 8 PM Christmas night.

Reading all of the posts this evening. I so feel like that I belong now. I will only go out for a few minutes tomorrow to pick up some munchies. We will stay home tomorrow night for food, games and movies. It is just three of us in my house . My DD,DH,and myself we call ourselves the three amigos on days like these. We enjoy going out and traveling however we cherish our times at home.

I've been in a pair of sweat pants... I am almost embarrassed to say I've even worn them several days at a time between washings. I have changed underthings and shirts but kept the same sweats.,
