My brother and sister-in-law came to visit with their kids. i love having my nieces and nephews around (they're always lots of fun!) but it can be hard sometimes too. I've had to share a room with my sister which isn't all that bad except that I value my space very much and it can be very stressful for me when i dont have it. my brother and sister-in-law are leaving tonight. i'll be sad to see them go but i'll be so happy to have my room back again. life seems so much easier to handle when i have my own space. 	
I have work tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it but I'm also dreading it. once I've been off routine for a while it can be really hard to get back on again. 

  • I know what you mean about valuing having your own space.  Like I said, I come from a large family, so I grew up always having to room with one or more of my sisters, and now that I haven't had a roommate in over 5 years, I feel much more relaxed, haha.

    As I'm an independent English tutor here in Japan, I'm happy for any work I can get, even when things get REALLY busy, because there are times when things are really NOT busy enough, and I miss the interaction with my students - as well as the income!
