That's what my house is right now. I asked Dave to please take all the children to the store to buy some ice cream so I can be alone for a little while. It has been a rough couple of days. We had new windows installed in our house, and so there was a lot of togetherness for me and the kids. They are used to being able to play all over the house, and I had to keep them out of the workmen's ways and away from the glass.

I am tired!

The windows look great, and I am so thankful to have them. I hope our bills change drastically, and I hope our house can maintain a more consistent temperature.

I am thankful for the quiet now. No one is yelling; no one is crying. Not even me. :)

So, I think I will go enjoy myself for a few more minutes before I eat my ice cream.


  1. oh, i totally get that. i managed to lay down for a bit while the kids (all 6) watched a movie this afternoon - in an attempt to get rid of the tension building behind my eyes... it worked. sometimes, it's just too much!

  2. Oh beautiful quiet, but only for so long can I enjoy it before I start to feel antsy and want my babies back with all their noise!


Let me know you stopped by! I love reading your comments!
