Wow! For the first time in a very long time, I came home from work today around 7pm and NOBODY was here!! Now I love my family, but with six people in this house plus all of our friends, it is rarely quiet. I came home, grabbed a glass of water, fed my dog, Charlie, and plopped down on the couch to watch the two episodes of Two And A Half Men that I have set to record every day. After a while, it grew dark in the house, but I didn’t turn on the lights. I just sat on the couch and relaxed. I don’t get to relax often, that is for sure. The boys are in San Diego this week visiting their father and everyone else was at work. So for three hours, I sat here, did some writing and reflecting and enjoyed the quiet. I managed to get a good bit of writing done. This past week, I have felt inspired again and it is refreshing. I feel that I am suddenly getting my thoughts out that have been swirling around in my head so furiously.
This week has been very busy with work. I have actually only had about 8 hours sleep in the past three days. Once I get everything finished, however, I will be taking next week off. I plan to seriously decompress!
