The Sound Of Silence

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.
