The DC is on holiday this week and dh is away on a holiday. I feel like going into total hibernation mode. I have already turned down a grown up birthday, a PTA request for help, and now some 'distant' friends are asking to visit. Am IBU to give a string of excuses and just hang out with my kids (a 4 year old and a baby)?

and should I feel any guilt?

If that's what you feel like doing then YANBU. I'd go crazy looking after two young kids with no adult conversation for a week though.

When I had a baby and a toddler, I was desperate to take up any invitation so I wasn't left by myself with them for too long!

Why make up excuses? Just tell anybody who asks 'sorry, I can't make it'.

Guilt about what confused?

I suppose I can't be bothered making conversational effort! That's one of the reasons!

And also people have hurt me a lot lately, and I can't be doing with more of that!!

yanbu, sometimes you just have to please yourself. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for helping people out or spending quality time with friends/family but sometimes you just have to take time out and fill up your own cup.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that at all. Sometimes me and ds are super social and sometimes there's nothing I like more than us two just bumbling about together, pleasing ourselves.

Do what you want, life is too short to sweat this kind of trivial shit

You're right Owllady, but I can't help blowing up this 'trivial shit' to epic proportions! confused!
