We need to be alone sometimes, and it is completely natural and understandable. What would you do if you were home alone for the first time in seven years?
This question is so easy to answer for the younger crowd, but what about family men? They are used to specific family dynamics, errands, housework, homework, taking kids to baseball and ballet practices…. but what do you do when someone takes that dynamic from you, just for a weekend?
