With no kids in site, the house here has become very quiet. I can hear a little drop of water rattling around in the air conditioner, the hum of the computer, and my own fingers hitting the keys on the keyboard. Last night there was no one sneaking down the stairs and hopping into my bed. This morning no requests for juice or snacks. I'm finding myself hurrying around for no reason, and time seems to a last a little longer. I read a couple pages in a book without interruption, and tonight I might read a bit more.
