A really quiet house

The nest is empty. Both of my daughters are in college. They don't live at home any more.

It is quiet here. My husband is two floors above me, watching TV in his man-cave. I'm downstairs, ensconced in my favorite chair, revising my next book1. And the silence is pressing in on me.

Over the past few years, as I wedged tiny bits of writing between the demands of educating and parenting my girls, I longed for the days when there would be quiet in the house... when I would have complete control over what to do with my time.

I have that now, and I love it. Really.

But I miss my baby girls. I could use just a wee bit more noise.
