I truly thought that once Eric and I moved from our small two bedroom townhouse in California into our much larger home here in Colorado that we would not suffer from a lack of privacy. That I could comfortably find a place in my home where I could be alone without background noise, children clamoring for my attention, or the privacy of my bathroom "moments" undisturbed. Wrong.
It has actually gotten worse. My pets, husband, and children actively seek me out more. If my presence is not immediately felt, it seems to be a requirement on their end to know where I am at all times and discuss obscure issues like, "Do you know that the movie, Iron Man 3 will be coming out in 2013?" or "Bri, did you know the flowers we planted last spring are finally in bloom?". This is all fine and good but is it necessary to holler for someone in a 3-story house who obviously can not be found for a reason? I don't want to be found. I'm probably resting or enjoying a good book or quite honestly, just want to be left alone.
