I wish I had my own room

Most of my growing up years, I had my own room. I spent most of my time in my room listening to music, reading, doing puzzles, and of course homework.

I wish I had that now(my own room, not the homework). I'm an early riser and these days I get up at 5:30 to go exercise. So, to make sure I don't disturb Hubby, I have my clothes out in the living room and I sleep on my alarm clock so I don't disturb him when it goes off.

I'm often back from exercising before he wakes up. I would love to go shower, but I don't want to go in to the bedroom and make noise while he is sleeping. I don't think that is very nice of me to do. So, I wait and by the time he gets up, all the kids are up and I'm in full swing mom-mode. So, often, showers either don't happen or they happen at odd hours.

My Hubby's computer is in our bedroom. The kids play their games on it most of the day during the summer time. So, there is always a kid or two in my room. (Another reason it's hard to shower any time of the day.)

So, I don't get to shower when I need to or when it is convenient for me. I work around everyone else. I don't have a place to go be alone any time of the day or night. No where to read quietly, write in my journal, or get dressed. I wish I had my own room. It doesn't have to be big or fancy just a place to call my own with nothing in it that would attract the others.

Oh well. In that dream house of mine, I'll have my little room. My own little room.

I just read a book where the husband built a new house and built a little bedroom just for his wife, he called it a room for a Lady. I thought that would be nice. I know how you feel though, our room is still a part of the main house. Funny how things work out. Someday... we'll have the perfect house.;)

Move your computer. And shower while he's sleeping. Put your clothes in the bathroom before hand. I doubt he worries about waking you up in the morning.

He never needs to worry about waking me up. I usually get up several hours before him. :)

I just need to be better about setting out clothes so I can use the kids bathroom in the morning.

To set the record straight, I tell her to shower whenever she wants to. Don't worry about bothering me. Feel free to dress in our room. Kick the kids out whenever she wants to- she doesn't even need a reason to. Heck, don't even let them in if you don't want to.. It's her room not the kids'. One thing she won't do, however, is do what I suggest.
