Aaaahhhhh....Can you hear that.......

it's the sound of silence.......

Yesterday was the first day of school for my 3 oldest girls - today my 4 year old started afternoon preschool.......the baby is napping.........it is so quiet here...........pure bliss!

Now, I didn't want school to start-I don't, don't, don't want summer to end-I don't want to get up at 5:30 to wake my oldest for school (there's something very, very wrong with having to be picked up at 6:45 by the bus-and that's with driving her to the last stop-it would be 6:15 if she got on at our house!)-I felt lost all day yesterday with the 3 oldest girls gone, but...........

I am enjoying myself right now!

I'm going to go fold some laundry but.............I get to do it in a quiet house, with nobody asking me for anything while I watch soap operas .........somehow that makes up for it a bit!

Hope you enjoyed your "me" time...Oh how I wish to have a few minutes of quiet...I'd sneak some crafting in if I were you!

Quiet. Sometimes you just need it. ;)

Ahh . . . There is something terribly sweet about quietly doing a mundane task with a favorite show going on in the background. My vices? Project Runway and Top Chef. Love my DVR! :) I didn't want summer to end either. The school year begins with a bang -- I can see from your blog that you are on the move too. Enjoy Labor Day . . . a little break, perhaps? Have a good day, my SITSta. :)
