This Sunday we went to a small gathering at an old friend's house that included his wife (who I adore, she's just fab) and another couple and their three kids.

I've met the other couple a few times, usually T is hanging out with them (Softball players, and he helps them out with a charity tournament they sponsor each year). They are fun and down to earth but decidedly more T's people than mine.

It was fun. I was tired after, but what's really funny is at the end I was all "This was fun! I am glad I wasn't anti-social this time!" and the Old Friend said "That's what's funny - you are one of the most socialable people I know, and I whenever you are somewhere everyone is all 'OMG she's so much fun, why doesn't she come out more often!'" and his wife was all "because she's like me - once she's home, she's not leaving."

EXACTLY.

At any rate, I went out and peopled and it was fun but I'm probably good for another 6 months, thanks.

Glad you got your people fix. Now you have more time to stay home and post on your board. ;)

I keep seeing this quote attributed to Daniel Radcliffe, but haven't verified if he is the source. However, I have never read a more accurate description of how it feels to be me:

"Being an introvert is wanting to be invited but not wanting to go anywhere. Being lonely at home but not wanting anyone in your space unless you really like them. And even if you really like them, you want them to go home soon."

I've sort of suspected I might be an introvert. This describes me to a T.

I like to have company and especially enjoy planning for the visit, but when they arrive, I start counting the hours.

We finally hired a cleaning lady who we don't have come regularly. I'm always thrilled to see her, but after 15 minutes, I want her gone. Lovely woman, but she's in my space.

Re: cleaning service....

I have one come once a month or so, just to keep myself from living in total filth. I’ve learned to schedule when I’m out of town or at work. That way I’m not all nervous about them being in my space, and I done home to vacuum tracks created my someone who isn’t me.

I'm interviewing my 5th cleaning service now (over the past 5yrs). I am up to weekly service, so I can keep the dust & dog hair under control, even though we are down from a family of 6 at the most to now, just 2 of us and the German Shepherd.

I'm usually home when they are cleaning. Being an extrovert, my challenge is to not talk to them too much, so they can actually do the job! Once I find one I am comfortable with, they'll get a code so I won't have to be around.

Always ;-)
