Do you have "quiet times" when you don't really care what's up, just shut the whole world out? :):):)

Other than my OnlyMaster and O/our lil mutt I often do so, and it is incredibly relaxing...

Absolutely. I have to get away from drama sometimes or I'll go nuts. Lots of people that I know like to spend their time yapping at each other about stuff that doesn't really matter. I can't stand it.

I sure wish I could find some time like that.... it seems like there is never a moment when someone or another doesn't need something from me. I forgot what quite sounds like, lol!!!

Yes I do, sometimes it will last all day long and I just do not want to be around any people.
Yes. I don't need it that often but sometimes, yes.

I have to - as an introvert, everyday situations, people, and interactions completely drain my energy, so I have to escape into a small space without much stimulus except for what I want to have (usually a pen and notebook).

Yep, we sure do that sometimes.

I'd love to, but have a toddler and a 1 year old stop that from happening until bed time. Then I have so much other stuff to do.

I think it's a great idea and it helps when I get the chance - but don't often get the chance to.

I think everybody needs Downtime.

I was raised an Only Child, so I was used to spending a lot of time alone. My husband had a brother (passed away), but they were almost 8 years apart, so he spent a lot of time alone as a kid, too.

I need my alone time. Although I loved raising my babies, it was difficult at first, because they need you all the time! Add that to our first baby being very colicky and needing to be held all the time, I was getting very depressed. (Add a difficult labor and an unwanted C Section and you have a recipe for PPD, which I had.) But, I kept at it, because I knew she needed me more than I even needed my alone time. We got through it, and it got easier with each kid.

But, I still need my alone time. Sometimes I LOVE company, or to spend time with my kids and my man. But, sometimes not. I'm OTR right now, and my middle daughter came into my room all sunny and talkative this morning (both our dogs were howling at the Tuesday morning sirens and she wanted to talk about it) and after a few minutes, I was getting fidgety and really wanted to be alone. But, I stuck with her for about a half and hour and then let her know my head was hurting and I had cramps, so she moved on to other things.

Our youngest has Aspergers and usually wants to be alone. We often have to prod her to socialize. Of course when she wants company, it's a different story.
