In Which Quietness Descends, And The Windows Are Opened, And The Birds Are Singing, And The Fans Are Turned On, And The Dishwasher Runneth, And The Son Has Departed, And The Husband Vanishes Into The Nether Regions

It doesn't feel like 4:30 pm...

But maybe that's a good thing.

The PA friends have taken our son away with them, and the table's been reduced again, and the extra chairs put away.

If this is a portent of things to come, it will indeed be a very quiet, possibly boring week.

Good thing we have a few coffee dates lined up. At least I'll have some goals!

Ah, yes.

Sunday afternoon in The Field; with the shades drawn against the hot afternoon sun, and the windows all open to catch the breeze, and the birds going mental in the trees outside the open windows.

Where the soft rumblings of the dishwasher and the gentle whirring of the fans create a white noise rivaled by the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind.


Now... to the Sims 2 or to seek out my other half...

Well, considering that he's probably asleep on the couch by now... I really shouldn't disturb him... it would be a kindness, really, to just go visit my new Sim family...


  1. What a long title! Just think, it will be you and Randall in your house by yourselves. One days Hillary, Thomas, and Micah will all be gone. So treasure the time you have with them now because who knows how often you will see them once you are.

  2. Oppps, I forgot to finish that sentence. What I meant to say is: who knows how often you will see them once they are gone.
