Listen.......


This house is soooooooooo quiet!!! It's downright eerie.

The kids have gone on vacation with their Dad. There is no music playing, no sports on the t.v.,
no video games making those repetitive noises, no one in the computer chair, no one to chauffeur here and there, no one saying can I have______ or can ______ come over, no one saying "I'm bored" or "I'm hungry (ten minutes after eating)".

I have none of this......Instead I have TOTAL SILENCE.
I could hear a pin drop SILENCE.
I can hear my own thoughts SILENCE.

A whole week of this? I don't know if I can handle it.
A week of actually being able to watch an entire show on t.v. with out someone saying, but I've been waiting all week for this show, or but the big game is on. (of course with Adam every game of every sport is THE BIG GAME)

I actually know what the remote looks like now. It actually can change the t.v. to a channel that is NOT sports related.
Am I dreaming......is it the drugs........No I think it is real.
Gee so many channels, so many shows and silence. How will I ever make it through the next week. :) :) :) :)

I do miss my kids, really I do. But I think I will enjoy this coming week.
I will have some major ME time :)

And just so everyone knows, the surgery went well. I am supposed to call on Monday for the pathology report. So keep your fingers crossed for me.

Love to all and have a good week end. I'll be relaxing on my sofa recliner watching some t.v.
