Both kids are in school all day today.
The house is silent.
I have a Kindergartner and a third grader.
I’ve exercised, picked up, ran the dishwasher, puttered about taking it all in.
There’s been no rush for breakfast or lunch.
I’m not constantly thinking about food — meals or snacks.
I’ve updated my Resume, just in case.
12 noon has come and gone; my brain hasn’t had to cram every errand, every note into a 3-hour window until a half-day pick up.
I miss the kids.
It’s really, truly, actually going to be like this for the foreseeable future.
