Ahhhhh, the Sound of Sweet Silence


Hubby was off from work yesterday so he volunteered to take the boys and their friend to the water park. I was happy to let him! I surmised that I had approximately four hours to do with as I pleased. I could have chosen to clean the house, do some laundry or even pay the bills. I chose to do none of them. I chose to do absolutely nothing that could be considered the least bit productive. The thought of having pure silence for four straight hours was quite appealing to me. I wouldn't have to be a referee and break up a fight. I wouldn't have to then be judge and jury and hand down a punishment. I know the day will come when I might actually miss those two duties, but that day was not yesterday. The puppies and I curled up together and took a long, relaxing two hour nap. Then, we woke up, stretched and I read for a bit. It was utter relaxation. I was care free for those 240 minutes and it was delightful.
