Right now, my house is perfectly still, amazingly quiet, and peacefully inviting! Even though only two of us live here, it can get pretty noisy. The TV is always on – my husband watches all the news outlets plus NCIS reruns. I like to watch some of my shows, but they’re usually at night. My husband is also just noisy – he tends to slam, bang, sneeze, crash all day long. I’m bothered by it – a lot – but my constant pleas get no results other than, “Sorry.” Yesterday, I was alone when he golfed, and today he’s running errands. Soon, the little guys will be here, and I think my bigger guys will be here for dinner. So that means noise, and a lot of it!
For now, I’m going to luxuriate in this quiet place, and I’m going to savor it. I know, one day I’ll be longing for this commotion, and it will be gone. However, once in a while it’s nice to just have peace and quiet.
