Tonight I am home… ALONE!
My kids are at my parent’s because I have a home care nurse arriving at 8am for my IV steroid infusion and I didn’t want to subject the boys to that, nor subject the nurse to crazy a 5 and 6 year old running around like they do every morning.
My husband is working the night shift tonight.
This never happens – I actually think this is a first. I am here, at home alone. No sounds to be heard, no phones ringing, no TV on, I won’t need to wear earplugs when I got to bed tonight, my alarm will be off in the morning, no kids will wake me up.
Right now there’s just the clicking of my fingers gently hitting the keyboard as I write this.
And when I stop typing…
The silence is beautiful!
