Tuesday

△▽△▽△

This week has been so sweet. It's not a normal week for the Mhire house. Lots of relaxing, playing with our sweet pup, and catching up on the mundane things like laundry and cooking. It's nice to feel like a normal human being for once, not going a million miles an hour. A bit off subject, but I took this test recently that places you in the introvert, ambivert, and extrovert categories, and I placed right smack in the middle at 50 points. I know most of the time these types of tests are a bit on the silly side and inaccurate, but I feel like it really hit spot on for me. I love going out, being adventurous, being flexible, and experiencing life. But on the flip side, if I go a few days without having some alone time, whether that's driving in the car alone, reading, taking a walk, or simply sitting around and existing, I feel exhausted and frazzled. I thrive on being social, yet recuperate from being alone. I use to feel guilty for feeling like I needed time to myself, but I'm realizing more than ever that to be the best friend/spouse/family member you can be is to take care of yourself, which for me means pulling away from the crowds at times and just simply being. Where do you hit on this scale? It's fun to see what others get, especially those you're close to and to see how they operate. Ready set go!

  6. what a cool quiz. I can really relate to your comments about wanting to be adventurous and still needing time to recharge. I had never heard the term "ambivert" until now. Interesting! Enjoy the downtime!

  7. You just nailed me right on the head by describing yourself! Thats how I am and its how I felt for so long, "guilty".. and you are right, you need time for yourself. I started taking more time alone and I've been a better sister/daughter/spouse.

  13. I love quizzes like that! You must be a gemini like me because I always feel like a walking contradiction. My personality is pretty flexible and I always have fun whether I'm with a large group of people or at home doing some mundane housework by myself.

  14. I totally know what you mean! I'm pretty in-between and know the feeling a being such a mix of personalities. I scored 67% and it described me pretty well. Thanks for sharing it was fun!
