I'm finally at peace with the fact that my husband and I have become homebodies. I don't know why I struggled accepting the label. It could be because one dictionary defines 'homebody' as: "a person who likes to stay at home, especially one who is perceived as unadventurous." But I'm going with Urban Dictionary's definition instead: "a person who enjoys the warmth and simple pleasures of being at home."
The past few years I'd tell myself my husband and I should be getting tickets to watch a play, we should be attending a concert, we should be going out to dinner, and to the Farmers Market on Saturday, because there's always something to do in Sarasota. Every Thursday I read through the "Ticket," an insert in the newspaper that lists page-after-page of what's going on in the city. Sometimes I'll even circle an event or cut out an ad and put it on the refrigerator, but rarely do my husband and I actually follow through. For some reason we find enough satisfaction in reading about the events and imagining ourselves being there.
Because, the truth is, my husband and I simply enjoy being with each other at home. Yes, we're homebodies who love our house, our five cats, the flower gardens, the bubbles, our grandchildren frequently visit, I love sewing quilts and my husband owns guitars, a keyboard and drums. No--we don't go out much--because the best event is right in our own home, and being together in the same room, feels like we're always sitting in the best seats in town.
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
