Lunch Break

Our schedule is starting to settle into a routine of sorts.

We get up, get ready, head out to the SkyTrain, and commute to work. We're at training for about 3 hours, and then we're on our own.

Some people bring their own lunches or go out to eat, but since we are on the econo plan this month (and let's face it, probably every month,) we've been trying to eat at home leftovers and other such things.

Today, I was on my own, as Ian was heading downtown to do some work and I had offered to babysit for a family so they could go out and get some work done.

And, being the introvert that I am (not of the shy variety, but of the "I draw my strength and energy from my down time," type,) I was thrilled to have an hour or so to myself...with no hubby in the house!

I had lasagna for lunch (that pan is lasting forever!) watched an episode of The Office online, read a chapter in my book for work, contemplated loading the dishwasher/doing dishes but quickly vetoed that, read some blogs, blogged (and while doing so discovered Ian's keyboard has a malfunctioning letter 'i.'


Can't wait until the next time I get to have some "me," time!

So, the question is, are you an introvert (drawing your energy from being by yourself) or an extrovert (drawing your energy from being around other people?)

Just wondering :)

Intro! I need alone / away time. Its usually okay if my hubby or other family is around, but I don't recharge with friends.

I am most definitely an introvert

I would say I am more extroverted. I find being on my own quite boring. But there are times when I like to shut my bedroom door and just be myself :)

I've actually been struggling with answering that question. I think I need a combination of both. I LOVE being with people, but if I get absolutely no down time alone or with just one other person, I go crazy and get snappy. So, probably more extrovert, but with an introvert streak. =)

Definitely an introvert when it comes to recharging. It may stem from being an only child, but I just crave quiet alone time. I'm probably one of a minor few that does not turn a radio on in the car when I am alone, just so I can enjoy the quiet hum of the motor! I also crave it because it is a rarity in my house for there to be a time when it is quiet or be alone...not easy with four kiddos! I enjoy getting together with family and friends, but to recharge...I definitely need to be alone.

I think I'm a little bit of both, honestly. I definitely need my "me" time, but f I have too much time by myself I go crazy and need to be around people! So I'm not sure which catagory I fall into!

I am a mixture of both. It may sound strange but it's true!
