HELP! I'm home and I don't wanna leave........

A strange condition has overtaken me and I'm not quite sure I know when it happened.  These are my current symptoms:
  • an uncontrollable urge to sink into my comfy chair, kick my feet up and languish
  • a deep dread of having to leave my house
  • fighting the urge to lounge around all day in my jammies
  • waiting until the last possible moment before walking out my door
  • thinking and planning for hours in order to combine as many tasks as is possible into just one trip out
  • making a mad dash out of any trip out of the house
  • running through the aisles at Wal Mart in order to 'hurry up'
  • making wild and vociferous complaints against anyone who hinders a speedy return to my house
  • sighing when I pull my car into my drive
  • dropping clothing as I go in order to return to my jammies
If you are familiar with these symptoms and can shed any light on my condition, please respond with haste.  I fear the mad dash must return tomorrow and the angst has already begun.

God guards you from every evil,
he guards your very life.
He guards you when you leave and when you return,
he guards you now, he guards you always.

Psalms 121: 7-8  (The Message)

Diane...there are days that I feel the exact same way. I love lounging in my jammies all day, The older I get home is my favorite place to be.

Is this a problem that needs correction? I think not!
You have been busy going from one doctor to another and squeezing Walmart in between. That's enough to make you holler UNCLE!
Enjoy your jammies and chair, you've earned them both!

I do the same exact same thing. If is wasn't for doctors and grocery stores, I would never go out. If it wasn't so much work and trouble I would sell out and move into one of those retirement homes for the elderly. The one thing about that is I am afraid I might find too many pest's knocking on my door. I would not like that.
I am 82 so I guess it's time.

Thanks ladies. I find home is so much more comforting as the years pass. I once could not imagine WANTING to sit at home on a weekend evening; now I can imagine nothing more enjoyable! I fear it is a sure sign I am getting old. ~~SIGH~~ Oh well, life goes on....

Many hugs............

You're not getting old, you've obviously made your home your refuge. Nothing wrong with that!

Thanks Connie, I do very much view my home as my refuge. Many told me I was making a big mistake by coming back to the house Terry and I built and made into a home. I have never had minute of regret. No matter how lonely I am, his love surrounds me here and he is in every corner of the both the house and the land. Making new memories here feels so right. I am so thankful I followed the Holy Spirit when making the decision to come home. This is the closest I'll get to home until I reach heaven!
