Josie and I took the Amtrak train/bus to S.L.O. for a few days to visit family.
Josie LOVED playing with her cousins. And I enjoyed weather in the mid 70's, relaxing, and Smores (thanks Lindsey).
Now we are home and it's quiet, too quiet.
Before they left for camp, the noise was making me, well, CRAZY!
To be honest, I didn't like myself all that much. Playing referee is exhausting.
They are kids. They make noise- silliness, laughter, arguing, asking, yelling, wanting, needing,
crying, playing, dreaming, exploring, creating, hoping, knowing, singing, dancing, jumping... NOISE!
Sometimes I want a bit of quiet, until it's too quiet, and then I want my noise back.
