I confess, I like being alone. I have NO idea how I survived six years of home schooling, being with my kids 24/7 and trying to be parent/teacher/referee/nurse/psychologist/cook/comforter/disciplinarian. Today the kids went to school, and the house was QUIET. It was awesome. I needed the space, especially after the mega-drama Princess Yakyak has been dishing out lately.
She's almost 10, and hitting puberty early. Hormones, girl drama, and a strong will have combined into the perfect storm of BAD ATTITUDE the past couple days. Heaven help me, I don't know if I'll make it through the next 10 years. I love her to death, but I was seriously put out with her yesterday and this morning. Thankfully she was in a much better humor after school today.
But I still really, really enjoyed my quiet day.
