Now I could have gone with Stephen to meet his friend from high school, but I did not feel like it. When he asked if it was all right if he went for an hour or so I said "sure". This gave me the opportunity to relax and have some alone time for the evening.
Instead of embracing this time in a positive way and taking the opportunity to engage in doing whatever I wanted, I became angry. This is quite funny now as I write about it because how ridiculous is it that I was craving the alone time yet was pissed off to be alone!
The fact that Stephen left to hang out with a buddy instead of hanging out with me, even though I wanted to be alone, only enraged me further. What I should have done was sit outside with a drink and my book listening to some music. Instead of taking part in an activity I would have immensely enjoyed I chose to lay on my bed watching a tv series on Netflix.
Since this is not what I had initially planned to do with my free time I only became angry with myself for not taking advantage of what I could have been doing. Needless to say, when Stephen came home I was not in the best of moods. He thought I was mad at him and decided he should sleep on the couch to give me my space. All this ended up causing was for me to call him a "drama queen" and that he had better sleep in bed if he knew what was good for him!
For someone who wanted her alone time, I certainly did not deal with that time in the best of ways!
