The Quiet House

Two weeks ago we moved and right now, for the first time ever, the house is relatively still. Our two boys left early for a work project, and the phone guy was only here for long enough to fix the bad outlet (maybe 20 minutes). Our regular visitors are the phone and internet repairmen and technicians. I think they have the phone lines all working now. Internet is fine as long as I'm plugged in-- no wireless yet.

The dishwasher and washing machine are running but that's lovely white noise that means cleaning is happening while I'm busy elsewhere.

A major move like this is hectic, exhausting, expensive, and loud. Once all the activity dies down I can stop stressing and begin to think and get my groove back. So maybe this is the week. It's starting off well with a nice quiet house. I should be cleaning after the hectic weekend. But first I just want to relish the peaceful feeling of a quiet Monday. Ahhhh!


  1. Man, I do love a quiet house. Enjoy yours. :)

  2. Linda, I suppose we wouldn't enjoy it so much if it was always this way LOL. It's the noise and activity that makes the quiet that much more pleasurable.

  3. Yay for a successful move!!!! Enjoy your quiet Monday!! Take care

  4. There is little that I love more than a quiet house...
