Yeah, a little too quiet

It's so quiet around here. I start a job tomorrow, so I flew home tonight, leaving P and the boys back in the Midwest for another day. And it feels so incredibly strange.

I've traveled for work this year, so it's not like I haven't spent time away from them (but that's another post). But as I sit here tonight, I can't remember the last time I was completely alone in the house. It's been a couple of years, that's for sure. And I'm kind of relishing the solitude. I just found out I start later than I thought tomorrow, at 10:00 instead of 8:00. So I'm not going to pick out my outfit for tomorrow. I'm going to get up at 8:00 or even 8:30. I'll make coffee, or go over to the coffee shop. Then I'll put together what I need for work. There will be no mad rush, no making breakfast for little people while being assailed by plaintive cries of ¡Hambre, hambre, hambre! I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around that concept.

When I say things like that, I always feel like I need to include a million disclaimers. Of course, I miss them already. Of course, I can't wait to go pick them up at the airport tomorrow night. Of course, I already called P so I could hear their sweet, sweet voices.

But I'm so going to enjoy tomorrow morning.
