We had to leave early Monday morning, so we
I kept thinking that someday I would get teary eyed over how quiet the house was.
But for now, I didn't have to be quiet because children were sleeping. I could yell for Mike from one of the house when he was at the other end of the house.
I walked on a floor that had been mopped six hours earlier and no one had spilled anything on it yet.
I got up in the morning and didn't have to tip-toe around.
I was ready in record time because I didn't have to solve a crisis or do anyone's hair, get anyone dressed, or feed anyone but myself.
My kitchen was clean when I left and I only had to load one cereal bowl in the dishwasher.
We didn't even have the dog at home, so no one to care for but ourselves.
Yeah, someday it will bring tears to my eyes, but for now...hurray!
And to those watching my children...thank you...and we really won't be back until next week!
