Today, I'm sitting in my office where things get done and just enjoying the silence.  All the kids are thither and yon and I'm reveling in alone time.  I never get it.  Except Tuesdays.  Tuesdays are good.  So are Mother's Day Out workers but that's another post.   I don't even want to turn on my music or run the dishwasher or washing machine (though I need to and probably will).  I just want to listen to the hum of the refrigerator and the click, click of the coffee maker and sit in praise for quiet days when you need them.
