Oh, my. I didn't know it could feel so good to be alone. Well, I'm not technically alone; there are two sleeping children upstairs. But the big girls have gone over to a friend's house to play FOR THE ENTIRE AFTERNOON--thank you, Abby!!--and Brian is out studying. And I am left all to myself.
You know how good it feels when you've cleaned out your closet or all the drawers in your dresser? No one can tell a difference from the outside, but there is a lighter feeling when you walk into the room. That's how I feel right now, having farmed out 1/2 of my kids--the house feels light and partly empty. Very refreshing. And yet I already miss them.
Now off to my To Do list? Not yet--I just brewed a fresh mug of coffee and intend to cruise through the cookbooks I pulled out last night in search for some healthier dishes. I think I'll turn on some Norah Jones too. Wow, what a treat!
