Girl gone mild!

Something really strange is happening to me. Lately, I get more excited at the prospect of going out to a nice quiet dinner than going out to drinks with friends, which is the usual Saturday night occasion. I am more energized by the thought of some afternoon shopping and a late night movie than getting dressed up for a night on the town. I’d really rather buy a new blanket or candle for our apartment than a new outfit or purse. I could be on an episode of “Girls gone Mild” for crying out loud, if something like that existed. What’s going on? What is this madness?

The Boyfriend and I have tried to solve this mystery, because at the moment, we don’t always see eye-to-eye. I am more 26 going on 40 and he is more 28 going on 22. I came to the conclusion that I have probably passed the party phase and that I’m somewhere stuck in between the dancing-on-a-table phase and the staying-home-on-a-Saturday-night-watching-Golden Girls phase.

Lately, I’m more Susie Homemaker than Susie Pour-me-another-drink. My mom would say that I’m “nesting” and she would be right. I don’t want to be considered boring or a party pooper, but I also don’t want to have to wash my hair twice the next day to get the smell of cigarettes out of it after a night in a smelly bar. 

Somehow I will have to find the inbetween, the balance; a phase that I will feel more comfortable with and that fits better with who I am now. But what phase is that?


  1. It sure is the nesting stage. At 26 I was in the nappy stage. Enjoy what your doing to the fullest, thats all that matters. Love u Lysie. xxxxx

  2. I'm 25 and I'M ALSO NESTING! My mother says I'm staying at home to grow my tummy. She wants me to move and exercise. I'm not the party-girl type however, but when friends contact me I tend to just stay at home and do other stuff. I blame the season. And the heat, perhaps? :) Merry Christmas!

  3. I totally understand what you're saying. I think i'm in the same phase. i no longer get excited to dress up and go out for the night. I'd rather stay in and watch a movie. Has the novelty of our youth worn off? ;0
