Oh the Sound of Silence

Oh peaceful bliss!!! It is silent in the house! Well ok, not exactly silent- I do hear the clothes in the dryer tumbling around upstairs- but other than that- and the sounds of my fingers pecking away on the keyboard- the house is SILENT!!! That is something that certainly does not happen often around here!

For example- last night our baseball players came in after their game with two other baseball players, then my two kiddos joined them in the bonus room. They actually were fairly quiet (as quiet as 4 college students and two young boys can be). Then this morning late this afternoon they all woke up and were all playing PSP or XBox- lots of yelling and cheering and just plain talking ok more yelling going on. Plus the dish washer was going, and the washer and dryer were being used- you know all of that typical house noise.

But now, the sweet sound of silence. The guys have all gone to play another baseball game and DH took the boys to the swimming pool and I am sitting here in complete bliss. The only thing that would make it better was if I was sitting in my garden tub upstairs, a book in hand and a glass of wine sitting there waiting for me!

Whoa- what am I waiting for?? I'm outta here! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I LOVE it when it's totally quiet. If the kids are sleeping, or gone or whatever, I rarely have the TV on, or music on, so that I can relish the quiet.

Yes, those quiet moments are so wonderful! I don't necessarily like when Chad's out of town, but there's something nice about being the only person awake in the house, with a few hours to just enjoy the silence!
