I woke up this morning with a feeling of new. New life, new hope, new day, new ideas. Surely something's around the corner waiting to crush this feeling, but for now it feels good. The kids started school today and I'm sad, miss them, and dang it's quiet around here. It's only half a day, and they usually sleep until noon, but still . . . it hurts. It hurts all year. There's a hole in my heart when my kids are gone.

Having said that, who's up for a party?

Actually, I have to clean something.

Why is it so quiet in here?


  1. It's probably quiet because the kids aren't demanding ice cream, pizza, cinema seats, new clothes, a new iPhone, new wallpaper, to have friends round, and fighting each other. Yes I too used to feel empty when they returned to school. Enjoy the peace.

  2. When my kids were young, and after a summer of having them around 24/7, I was always ready for the school year to begin. I missed them but I was a very tired mother and having structure and some quiet back in my life was needed.

    Enjoy your time, the weekend is only two days away.

    1. I have noticed that my 'mourning' period fades quicker than it used to!
