The Perfect Ending

I've got a cup of coffee, and the laptop on the couch.
The dog is snoozing next to me.
And I'm listening to....... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!
HaHa! Jealous??
It's cool and overcast this morning, so the a/c isn't even making any noise. All I hear is the tap tap tap of my fingers on the keyboard.

How do I achieve this blissful silence? Let me tell you how.

Send the kids to sleep at Grandma's house!
Yes, normally I like it when they stay over on a weekend night, because then hubby and I get to spend a kid-free morning together. But this...... Ahhh. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it.

I can't believe the whole holiday weekend is over. We went to the pool, out for breakfast, to a Durham Bulls baseball game, horse riding, blueberry picking, out to the lake, fireworks, church, and grandma's house. I loved every minute of it!

And now... It's all over. Daddy is back to work. The festivites are done. What normally feels like such a let down when the holiday is over has ended in the perfect way.
Some unexpected quiet. What a great weekend!

We almost went to the Bulls game, but bagged it at the last minute to stay home and pop fireworks in the driveway. Glad you had a good weekend.

Oh! the sound of quiet sounds blissful!

Your kiddos are cuties!

I didn't realize you were local! So fun!

Can I borrow your grandparents? Just kidding. We're still trying to talk my MIL into moving down here. I'm glad to hear that you are able to enjoy some quiet time. My big kid goes back to school tomorrow, so it'll be a little quieter around here.
