HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
If you are a mom, this is your day. Enjoy it to the fullest. I usually like to spend my Mother’s Day with my family and appreciating all the people that make me proud to be a mom. This year, I’ve asked my husband if I can just be lazy in bed. I can’t sleep in. No one will really let me. But if I could just laze about, I’d be happy. And I’d like to laze with a little quiet. After this post, you’ll know why.
We headed up to the DC area this weekend to just check out the area and figure out where we might possibly want to live. I’ve found lots of beautiful areas. Gorgeous rolling hills and trees. But out in the middle of nowhere. My main requirement? I need to be no more than 10 minutes from a major grocery store.
That’s beside the point.
My main point is that we’re staying for a few days with my sister in Baltimore. (Do not think this is an invitation to rob my house. I have a vicious cat on duty). My sister *should* have a pretty quiet house. She’s been married for a long time now and has no kids. No dogs. Just 2 crazy cats.
However, my mom and my nephew live a block away. And my brother lives upstairs. And this family can talk. A lot. Even though most of us in the household spend our time visiting on some sort of electronic device (yes – I finally get to show off my Nintendo 3DS to people who are really impressed), it always just so loud.
I’m one of those people who needs quiet. Craves quiet (crazy that I became a mom). Here, the TV is always on. ALWAYS. And there are about a million LOUD conversations going on at the same time. In order to be heard I have to talk and keep talking until someone concedes that you have the floor and then shuts up.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to some sleep tonight. And maybe a little morning quiet time.
