You know, you are right.
I couldn't believe it myself. I lived out of a backpack and wandered the country for several years before I settled down to raise my family. I ( and
many others I'm sure) have grown so accustomed to the daily grind that we manage to lose a bit of our spontaneity. I am so unaccustomed to silence
that I really didn't know what to do with myself, and my house was actually silent.
I am spoiled to have a peaceful life ( or as peaceful as boys
can allow it to be ) and live where I do. I am honestly still readjusting to the yearly shock of coming back inside. My 2 weeks to myself even
changed as of yesterday afternoon because of something that came up at his work, but this really did make me realize exactly what you pointed out. I
was just a touch bummed to lose my evening research time, but I am glad to have him home.
I will be the first to admit that I am grateful for my own problems. We all have some, but I don't live in Syria either.
And off topic, but I really hope you stick around ATS, I appreciate your take on a lot of things. We may not be on the same wavelength, but your
observations have made me reevaluate things more than once. Have a wonderful day, jiggerj!
