Alone time is something that is a need for me and always has been. I too am 50 and what I think makes this more difficult for me is that I never had any children of my own so much of this is all new. We are raising our 3 year old grandson who is actually my step-grandson. I have to remind myself often that our decision to seek custody of him was not about us but about him. My husband is away working so much that I often feel like single-moms must feel.

I think we all feel that way once in awhile. In my case I want that quiet, but once I have it, I miss the contact with my grandchildren.
They say our grandchildren are blessed to have us, I feel I am blessed to have them.
At 50, it is rough, but on many days they are the sun that shines in my soul.
