Did you hear that? Listen.

You don't hear anything? Me, either! That, my friends, is the rare sound of silence.

DaycareKid = absent.
Babygirl = napping.
CuteBaby = napping.
Youngestboy = at school for another thirty minutes.
Twin Boys = with dad at meeting with mentor teacher.

Me? Diet Coke, blogs, blinders on so as to not notice the scattered debris on the floor.

Oh, that silence also means one more thing: the laundry is finished and a better housewife would jump up and go fold it.

I am not that housewife. I must enjoy this quiet while I can.

when you're done with all that quiet, could you send it on over here? along with the blinders?

Laundry can be folder in 3 minute increments if necessary, relaxing can not. Savor the moment.

Your post reminded me that I have laundry in the dryer to be folded! I realized last night. . . I go to a bible study regularly, but I ususally don't get around to the homework. My motivation for continuing to go?? Getting out of the house and just sitting for a few hours without hearing "mommy!"

Enjoy the bliss... it only visits every now and then, and must be relished for every moment you can make it linger.

Is it a sin to covet your silence? I sure hope not, or I am in big trouble. lol.
