3 Years in the Making

Today - at 9:00 a.m. - You might possibly here the scream of joy coming from central Arkansas.
Today - at 9:00 - I will drop off the little sister at Mother's Day Out.
Today - at 9:00 - I will return to my nice, quiet, empty house.
Today, I will sit in that quiet house and hear NOTHING!
I will be ALONE for, count 'em, 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ... 5! Yes 5 WHOLE HOURS!
It will be the first time since sister was born. *sigh*
I don't have to go to work.
I don't have hubby home to interfere with my solitude.
I don't have company that wants to be entertained.
I have no one -- and I'm so excited.


  1. Just experienced that for the first time myself a few weeks ago. It's the pause that refreshes! I'm glad to see them when they get home, but it's nice to have a little time that's just mine.

    P.S. Your email today meant more to me than you can know. Thank you.

  2. Yay for you!! I tried to find a Mother's Day Out program here, but of course our stupid town doesn't have one!!
