that's the sound I hear as I finally collapse into my chair with a cocktail...
the sound of an empty-almost-clean house. (9 bags of garbage from their rooms to the curb.)
the sound of knowing your kids are safe, healthy, happy and together living life to its fullest.
the fact that you know you taught them well to live, enjoy, be safe, have fun, appreciate, repeat.
the sound of being alone. with a full fridge, a full heart, candles lit, loud soft music filling your kitchen on Pandora.
thinking of what to make for dinner that YOU want. and he wants. when you want it.
the fire is lit, your husband will be home. it will just be two (kinda') missing 3. in the quiet, almost clean house.
planning the future. talking. drinking. thinking. together. perfect.
