Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse....


But I'm still hearing voices?!?!?!

My mom and sister Amy have so graciously offered to take my kids for 2 days while Chet and I get some much needed alone time! This means- they are getting Dante off to school and getting everyone breakfast and entertaining Erin and Ethan- so I can have some peace with Chet- and not feel like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I dropped them off last night around 8:00. I got home and started to fold laundry so I would have NO housework to do on my 2 days off! As I was folding laundry... I heard Ethan run in and say Mom?! So, I got up, thinking maybe I had forgotten to put something in their bag. But no one was there.... then I sit back down and I keep hearing my kids calling my name? It was kind of freaky! I have stopped hearing the voices now- but it took a really good nights rest, to stop the voices:)

It is funny what your brain adapts to, and when it is not there- then it will start to act like you are having withdrawals from hearing, "mom, MOM, MOOOOMMM, MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM!" :)

But for now- I am totally enjoying my peace and was able to sleep in until 10:00 this morning! It felt great:)

I am so jealous that you got the house to yourself. How wonderful! I am the same way. I always think that I hear one of our boys crying at night so then I check on all of them and they are all fast asleep. Thats when I think I am going crazy!

I am so jealous!! I really need my mom to move to Houston so I can get some similar treatment! :) Though I don't think she could handle all 3 of mine - she didn't raise 6 kids like your mom, and wouldn't have Amy there to help either!!
