School.

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.

Not really.

It’s really, truly, actually going to be like this for the foreseeable future.

Now what?!
