I am insane.
Why, you ask? Okay, please ask because if you don’t then I’ll think I have some really obvious problems and that’s just way too depressing to consider.
I am a lunatic because I keep checking on my kids tonight and I KNOW that two of them are sleeping over at friend’s houses. Tomorrow is a holiday from school here and so when my older two were both asked out for a sleep over I agreed.
Now I don’t know what to do with myself.
You’d think I’d be happy with the quiet. I spend a lot of my time usually LONGING for quiet.
You know what?
It’s too quiet.
I went out for a while tonight with my youngest. She told me it was ‘cool’ being an ‘only’ child. I laughed. It was actually very nice spending some one on one time with her; she and I don’t get a lot of that.
But tonight, now that we’re home and I should be kissing three children’s sweetly slumbering cheeks and straightening three sets of blankets I only have one to do.
My house is empty.
Be careful what you wish for.
