The Positives Of Being a Single Woman At Boomer Age

When something is eating at me then I like to write about it.  In my Bio I wrote that I am 62, single and I like to work on having a positive attitude.  Lately something has been eating at me.  I look in the computer for deals, news, blogs and read a lot about couples.  Now I have been a couple and that is good.  I almost got to feeling sorry for myself but no way can I go there so I am turning this negative into a positive right here and now.  Don’t get me wrong, it is wonderful to have that special someone but there are positives to being single so therefore I am going to list a few.

  1. You don’t have to answer to anyone in your house but yourself.
  2. You can take a nap and not be bothered.
  3. If you don’t feel like cooking then the heck with it.
  4. You don’t have to worry about the toilet seat being left up and falling in when you sit down.
  5. The candy wrappers, empty soda cans and etc. on the coffee table are yours not HIS.
  6. The under wear in the laundry feels nicer.
  7. The thermostat can be set in your living area that is pleasing ONLY  to you.
  8. When you grab for your tooth brush it is yours not HIS shaving brush.
  9. Bathroom breaks can be taken as long as you need without someone standing outside of the door telling you to HURRY up.
  10. There is more space in your bedroom drawers for nice things like nail polish, makeup, jewelry, Ladies magazines and etc. etc. etc.
  11. T.V. watching can be fun without someone talking in your ear.
  12. If you do not like sports then you don’t have to worry about it being on every T.V. channel in the house on Sunday.
  13. You don’t have to be worried about not getting a special gift from HIM on your special day because there is no Him.
  14. You have the entire bed to yourself and can throw covers, pillows and etc. where ever you want instead of playing tug of war with the sheets.
  15. If you like sleeping with your favorite pet then there is always room for the pet to cuddle.
  16. You don’t have to worry about being told what to do when you already KNOW what you are going to do.
  17. You can take a shower in private without a HIM  trying to get in with you when your only thought is to get clean.
  18. The ice trays are always full in the refrigerator instead being empty.
  19. The dishes in the sink are YOURS not HIS  and HERS.
  20. There is much more room in the closet for all your shoes and nice out fits.
  21. Mud and oil stains are seen much less on your living room carpet.
  22. The bathroom smells like lavender not Old Spice and gym shoes.
  23. There is no argument about where or when to go on vacation.  You only have to be concerned about your schedule.
  24. The ice cream that you bought to eat is there when you want it instead of an empty carton.
  25. You can go to work in peace not having to worry about a phone call from HIM asking what YOU  are going to fix HIM  for supper.
  26. Bad breath in the early a.m. is not an issue.
  27. If you gain a few pounds no one knows but you if you dress correctly.
  28. If you have a one car garage then it is for YOUR  car only.
  29. You can read a book in bed at night with the light on without hearing a bunch of grumbling coming from a voice on the other side of the bed.
  30. If you goof up on something at home it is your secret unless you choose to tell.

I am really getting carried away here folks but it sure helped to write these positives down.  Now I can lay down, take a little nap in peace before getting ready for work.  When I get up I don’t have to be concerned about the living room being in a mess again or the sink filled back up with dishes.

Thanks for letting me vent, You FOLKS  are Wonderful!
