Good Morning Family
TGIF and time to have a peaceful weekend.

How do you feel when it’s time to go home? Do you welcome the chance to step into your apartment or house? Or do you dread it?
Today's Question:

Is your Apartment or House Just a Place to Sleep ?

Absolutely NOT!!! Everyday when I get off work, I always rush thru my errands etc because I can't wait to get home. Not because I have this deep need to be in my house, but because I am always in a hurry to get home to my husband!! I just live in a building, but my home is my husband and anywhere he is:)

For me.... Of course it is.

I could never imagine getting too attached to a home or apartment or anything. When I was a kid, I was moved from home to home a lot (I was in Foster Care). It's left a deep impression on me... Nowhere is a stable place... if I want stability, it has to come from within, and sometimes that can be tough to manage.

I am happy that I have a roof over my head, but my feelings stop there. If I have to leave, then I have to leave. That's the way things are. It's the way things always have been.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Nope definitely not! I love my house, the minute we hit the driveway I am so glad to know I get to be in my own space. Its definitely a comfort zone. That is marred slightly by a land dispute we're having with one of our neighbors and we're also remodeling the downstairs so when I'm feeling stressed I try not to go down there into the chaos... but its neat finally having my own home that I can decorate the way I want. Plus the wildlife has been rampant lately so we've watched the deer from our livingroom every day for the last 4 days. So cool!

Even though I hate the house I live in, just hate the layout, size, carpet, etc., it is still the place I love to be because my family and my little dog are here.  I do love my bedroom, it's exactly how I've always wanted it (finally), so I like to be in there.  Someday I hope we move into a house I like, but for now I try to enjoy what I have the best I can.

My house provides a place of familiarity and comfort. I feel more safe in my own house because I know I can hide away if I need to, eat if I want to, drink something when Im thirsty, go to the bathroom whenever I want, or sleep and not get out of bed if I choose! I dont feel comfortable going to other peoples home and I dont get that same feeling.

Right now, my house is place I go to after school and as soon as I walk in the door, I change into my basketball shorts and a t-shirt, and get in bed and watch tv until I decide I want to go to bed and then I wake up go to school and it happens the same way EVERYDAY!

I cant help it though. Lately I have been EXTRA exhausted and just feel like I simply "cant" move. I find no reason to get up and go anywhere. I realize that Im being EXTRA lazy, but with Fibro and anxiety and depression...everything all together...I dont feel like waking up, period.

Hopefully this will change....but for now, all I want to do is sleep.

its my parents house, i moved home to save money as renting at the moment is simply horrid. my room is my haven. its big enough to have my queen sized bed, desk with all my teaching resources, huge wardrobe, large flat screen tv & dvd etc. its my sanctuary where i hide from the world......

i am desperate for my own house/unit/apartment again, but for now, this is home and this is comfy and cosy.

I love coming home to my house. It's like my safe place. Actually, my bedroom is my safe place but you get my drift. I sometimes lock myself in my room so that no one will bother me and just read or do a crossword or something to that effect.

I live in an apartment so can't paint walls and stuff like I'd love to do but my home is my comfort zone and at the end of each work day I look forward to unlocking the door and coming inside.  It may be small but it is "home" and safe.  You know how when you get sick there is no place like your own bed to be, well that is the way I feel about my apartment.

I am happy with my home as long as my hubby is with me.  He and our warm and loving dog make it home for me.  I would not want to live in this house alone. 

It is the people I love that make my home a special place.
