Little Miss Anti-Social

I have been feeling kind of anti-social lately. I usually have fun when I make myself go out and do things but it is really hard to get the motivation to leave the house. We went to our neighbors' house yesterday for their daughter's 3rd birthday party. It was a fun party with lots of food, games, a pinata, and of course, a bouncy house. It was all good letting the kids get hopped up on junk food and bounce their little heads off in the bouncy house until the birthday girl threw up in the middle of the living room while everyone was eating their burgers. Luckily we are all parents so no one even batted an eye or stopped eating. My tolerance for grossness has definitely gone up since I gave birth.

Even though it was a good party I just couldn't get myself in the socializing mood. Making small talk seemed like a chore and I felt like the comments I did make came across wrong. Usually we are the last out the door since we live so close but last night we were the first ones to go home. This anti-social behavior has even extended to blogging. I can barely bring myself to update. I'm still reading everyone else's blogs I am just in a funk with my own. I have been tagged for a meme and I got an award so I promise I will get to those soon.

In other news, I did buy myself one birthday present already since my birthday is a mere 2 weeks from today. It was the Thursday markdown at LL Bean last week and I picked it up for $49.00 and free shipping. Now I just have to wait for it to get cold enough here in Texas to wear it. I also picked up Bear's Halloween costume. I am not a fan of the traditional Disney character costumes or the scary ones for kids. I thought this was too adorable and my husband is a total golf addict.

Tomorrow I get to go blow the rest of my birthday money my Mom is sending me on an eye exam, contacts, and glasses. I live on the wild side.

I go through anti-social phases all the time. I'm totally a homebody so I know that feeling of having to force yourself to go out and socialize.

Maybe you just need a quiet day for yourself to get out of the slump :)

Yeah, I'm getting anti social, myself. I've got too many things to do lately to do more than read blogs and make phone calls! Going on vacation this weekend, so thankfully, I've got a break coming up!!!

I totally know how you feel. I was invited to a barbeque yesterday, and I spent most of it sitting inside watching tv because I just didn't feel like talking that much. Tonight I'm blowing off my friends and having a little "me" time at my house all by myself. It's therapeutic!

I am super anti-social and I hate small talk. I didn't think it was a problem until I saw that my son doesn't do well in social situations...that scares the bejeebus out of me.

I feel like I've been the same way. I've actually become a homebody, and that's so unlike me! Maybe there's something in the air...

I've totally been there myself. Hope you get to feeling better when the time is right.

We all get stuck in a funk. I'm feeling pretty funky myself these days. Love, love, love the Peacoat! Betcha when it arrives you'll feel a little less funky. :)
