1…I can eat cereal for dinner if I want to!!!!!

2...I never have to share chocolate.

3...If I dont want to wash up...I dont!!!!

4...If I want to go to bed at 7pm I can.

5...Conversly, if I want to stay up til 2am I can.

6...There's no-one to laugh at me when I'm wearing pink flannel jammies.

7...I can curl up with my teddy bear, and not have to worry about putting someones nose out of joint.

8...All descions about interior design are MINE and MINE ALONE

9...I never have to share chocolate (did I mention this before??? It bears mentioning twice!)

10...If I choose to spend 7 hours reading, no-one cares.

11...No-one steals my socks anymore!!!!!!!!

12...When I do wash up, its usually 2 plates, 2 cups, 2 sets of cutlery.

13...No-one can moan about the length of time I spend online!!!!!!

Somedays I wish I did live alone again, just so I could do whatever I wanted. Enjoy your alone time. Happy TT. :-)

I like to spend time alone, but I've never lived alone. Luckily mu hubby lets me do whatever I want. ;-)
My TT is about TV-series.

Great list. :) Although I do #1 sometimes, and I don't live alone. ;) Some evenings neither my hubby nor myself wants to cooks, so we "fend for ourselves". He often does sandwiches, and I eat cereal. :)

Happy T13. :)

Great list. I also do #1 sometimes and I don't live alone, but I still have to make dinner for everyone else. Why would anyone laugh at pink flannel pj's? I love flannel. It's not pretty, but it's warm. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by:D

I actually enjoy some of these things when my husband's away doing army things. But with three boys now, it's a little more difficult. Good for you for finding some peace in your corner of the world! ;)

I love cereal. I would eat it if people laughed or not. Sugar Smacks. (sorry politically correct Honey Smacks).

Living on your own certainly has it's benefits! You are the boss and the only person you have to worry about (or clean up after) is YOURSELF!

Heather said...

LOL! I absolutely love this list! Happy TT!

-things are where you left them

- there is not blog jelousy to deal with(could be comparable to #13, I guess)

- music and tv levels can be at whatever volume you'd like, and watch whatever you want too!

Yeah, there are diffinitly beniffits

Living alone does have its perqs...

* if there's a mess, you don't have to play the blame game of "who made it" (on the flip made the mess. You can't blame someone else.)
* you know exactly when you're going to run out of milk, so you know to get more
* no negotiations for the remote control
* no negotiations for the favorite chair
* no negotiations for the last of the morning coffee
* if you laugh out loud at things in books, or on line, or on TV, no one will look at you oddly. (Unless you have cats...then they'll look at you oddly for no particular reason. They're cats. That's what they do.)
* you can put up your Christmas lights whenever you dang well please :D
