Home Alone

(Honestly, this is the only time he was quiet this summer.)

All three kids are in school full-time this year. Weird. I've discovered some things I love about it and some things I don't and have made a few funny discoveries along the way.
  1. The clock above my computer ticks. Loudly. Who knew?
  2. If all your kids are at school, you're stuck on the toilet if you run out of t.p. (Luckily I'm a quick thinker and resourceful. 'Nuff said?) 
  3. You find yourself saying "yes" to just about every volunteer position and then start second guessing your sanity.
  4. I can read a book in the middle of the day if I want. Now on to read worthwhile and edifying material!
  5. You don't need the childcare at the gym anymore. Sigh.
  6. The laundry is no longer your nemesis but rather, your daily companion.
  7. You can meet your husband for lunch. Most days. Fun!
  8. You have time for prayer. You + God = some pretty great quiet time spent together.
  9. Your hair is done and your workout is in by noon.
  10. After school becomes your favorite time of day.

Reading a book in the middle of the day...now that sounds like heaven!
Josh would disagree, and say me having my hair/makeup done would be a delight:-)
