I do not particularly want them to come back. This week has been nice. Would have been easier in a smaller area (our house is large. Very large. And when there's only one person in it, it seems more ridiculously huge than usual) but it has been nice. I am quite capable of taking care of myself and I don't really need company. I do love my family, but just because I love someone doesn't mean I want to be around them all the time (in the vast majority of cases) or even much at all.
And, despite sleeping almost constantly while they were gone (since my mother does not believe in 'sleeping in' and so I usually wake at anywhere from 7 - 9 on summer mornings) I am extremely tired. Bah. Sleep.
