ChiliSpouse is gone one weekend a month (occasionally two) doing his high-performance driving instruction and beating the crap out of his track car on the track. He leaves around noon on Friday and returns about 9:30 Sunday night.

Heaven. Heaven, I tell you.

I grew up essentially alone until grade school and even then I spent a lot of time alone. It developed into a love affair with peace and quiet. I can party to an extent and I have lifelong friends and a few new ones that I hold dear, but alone time is precious to me.

But when CS is gone for the weekend, I revel in a silent house and a good book.

So, if you wanted to play poker until 2 a.m. once a month and sleep all day the next and that was the only time I could be alone, I'd encourage it heartily.
