Shhhhhh Stop all that Talking
Yesterday I craved quiet and got it! I spent the morning in silence with art projects and the afternoon in the pool with a book on the edge. I did not speak except for the few questions about water and potty to the dog. By evening I had decided I should convert to Catholicism and become a nun in some "Order of the Quiet Women" and THEN I would be happy and fulfilled. This is pretty much my classic ......gotta have more of what I like. Then the husband came home. sigh. The TV comes on the talking and questions and reminders and noise, noise, noise.
You know the saying "you made your bed now lie in it?" I don't like that. If you made your bed poorly then how about ripping the bedding off and starting over? How about get a new bed? How about moving into the spare bedroom and get in that bed? How about just starting over?
I think, the older I get I'm just seeing "my bed" and some days I don't want to get into it much less just lay there. Sometimes the familiar bed is comfy even if it needs washing.
I am off to enjoy this day among my noisy co-workers.
