Silence... Ahhhhhh. There's no one home but me. It's so quiet!! Patrick and the kiddos went camping last night. They forgot me :) Oops! I wonder if they've noticed?? Just kidding... This mama was turning into a monster, so they all decided that it would be okay if I stayed home from this trip. I have spent time reading, sleeping, laundry, cleaning, listening to music - all of my favorite things. The house will be filled back up soon - I really wouldn't want more than a day away. The noise will be back and I will be glad. I just needed a few minutes away from it all. It's been a great thing. For now, I have a couple of pages I want to read. Later!!
