Silence

Photobucket
this makes me dizzy


Last Friday morning Easy took the girls with him to California and left me here

I had clinical Saturday and would fly out to meet them that night

I was depressed about it all week

Friday morning I got a FB message to just enjoy it

So I did

At first it was so strange - going to the bathroom and sitting at the computer uninterrupted

I cleaned the house and it stayed clean

I got a pedicure

Took myself out to lunch

Rented a chick-flick and bought my own personal Ben and Jerry's

I went to Target by myself and just moseyed around then over to Good Will in search of any type of rare-find

It was nice - really nice

Then it got dark - and I ate dinner alone -watched a little TV alone - put on my movie alone

And I was sad

I missed the giggles and the bedtime kisses - I realized that the only people I really talked to were my mom and Easy (both on the phone)

I located the wooden bat

I couldn't sleep

It was awful thanks to my very vivid imagination

So many noises in the silence

Left some lights on

Finally slept

Never again

Apart is a funny thing! -While I did my one night stint at the hospital, Jake said it was "weird" and later divulged he was hearing creaks and cracks and imagined too. :) Enjoy your trip and joyous Reunion!
PS thanks for the well wishes- I'm off to nap.

are they back now then?
it sounds like I would have done the exact same things as you! It is nice to have moments to ourselves, but I would sure miss my family too!

Yes we are all back. Made the hot drive across the desert yesterday.

Now the house is trashed.

I like the occasional hour to myself here and there, but time to yourself is overrated! I'm like you.. after a couple of hours it's just too quiet!

Nights alone are hard for me- I freak myself out and stay awake way too long. We've talked about Matt getting a night job- if he does I will never sleep again I'm afraid!

I know how you feel...Scott's been in China for two whole weeks now. I let all the kids sleep with me because I am too much of a wimp to sleep alone. Which means I don't really sleep with three hot little kids kicking all night! At least your house stayed clean.

sounds so nice to be alone for a while, but I am sure I would feel the same way after a few hours.

WOW! I actually enjoy sleeping in the next day but i hate it after about 8 more hours. I just want my kids back! Love the peace but crave the chaos of all things kid!
Love to you and the baby girl in your belly( my guess)
