When I make plans to do something on a day off at home, I don't expect that I should have to share my plans of doing laundry and cleaning out the closet. This usually results in chaos and arguing due to the fact that I get a tad pissy when I am asked to do other things. And while we are going 5 years strong, I am having a hard time letting go of my [independence]. For some reason I find it so difficult to say "Actually I had plans to clean the closet and do laundry today" without sounding like a complete bitch.
It's not that I have big secrets. I have nothing to hide, I just don't care to share my every thought and I prefer to do some things alone.
I guess I'll just leave it at this -- I like my space. Period.
