Instant Silence

Hey there !

Oh. . .My. . .Gosh ! My house is so quiet, it's almost scary. Fortunately, I am a very brave woman, I can hang with this for a while. All week, actually since last Wednesday night, my house has been a zoo with no less than 4 - 8 kids (and let's not forget, my five dogs and my husband) running amok, 24 hours a day. It really hasn't been all that bad, they're all people that I love.

Still, when Jasmin picked up Christian, and Jake went to spend the night at his friend's house, and Alexis from next door had to go home; I looked around and realised that it was just Heather and I. I walked around the house turning off all the radios and televisions that had been left on, replaced all the missing phones back on their chargers, and gathered up all the empty coke cans. Then, I just sat at the kitchen table, smoking a cigarette, and listening to the silence. I had almost forgotten what it was like to just sit and think. Then of course, my hubby called and said that he was on his way home, and that I should have some food ready for him. Even that was weird - cooking for just THREE people ?! That hasn't happened much lately.

Tomorrow, Heather and I are going to tackle spring cleaning of her bed room, but I'm not getting up at the crack of dawn to do it. We've got all day, her friend, Alexis, will be at a Bible quiz tournament, and Roy has some side work to do, who knows when Jake will come home ? He's going paint balling with his friend, Patrick, to celebrate his birthday. (Patrick's Bday, not Jakes.) I do have to go visit Nick at 8pm - if he hasn't been farmed out yet.

Well, since the living room is empty, I'm going to go cuddle up with my dawgs, and watch a movie.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend !


P.S. I have added some links to my site. I've been meaning to do it for ages. One of them is to Jasmin's blog, another is for Heather's Anime story writting blog. I think that the rest are all links to my old blogs, ( and Below my profile photo, are the links to my artwork sites.) if anyone cares to take a trip down memory lane.

There’s a parable about a man who complained that there were too many people in his house. It’s too long for me to write out, but your post reminded me of it.

Enjoy the quiet and have a blessed and relaxing weekend, Susan!
