Day 10 - A quiet house

I'm not a night person. By about 8pm I've shut down. I'm tired. A little more cranky. And I don't feel like interacting with anyone. But I have three children. And a husband who is a night person. My home is active and bustling in the evening. So I don't get my peace and quiet at night - I get it during the day when husband is at work and kids are at school. Sometimes, after I've dropped the kids off at school I'll go to Starbucks, get my favorite Caramel Macchiato and come right home. I let the dog out and then sit on the couch in our family room and just listen. To the quiet. I sip my coffee and enjoy the silence. Because there IS joy in silence. Ahhhhhhh......

Yes, I think that too. Now that school is out, I have to be sure to get my silent time before everybody gets up!
