I was all prepped for a return to normal routine of post April school break. 6 weeks left of academics. Here's the scene....
Last night house was clean, last load of sheets in the dryer to be folded this morning (done). Backpacks repacked for the week and ready to go at their designated spots. Track bag packed for meet today after school even. I was in bed by 10 and ready to dream of a day where I could fold that last bit of laundry in quiet with a cup of coffee after getting home from morning drop off. I also have about 100 calls to make today and was looking forwards to getting stuff done in the solitude & silence.
Here is the reality:
Got out if the house fine for the morning drop off. Dishwasher started & running. Got home to find hubs has decided to hang out and work from home - which means no silence....he's on phone and he walks around on calls (which I have to be silent during because his headset mic is sensitive).
This also means when im trying to get stuff done there will be urgent questions that need answers from me. So much for my quiet and productive day. Im a person who craves quiet....there are constantly things that make noise all around me, appliances, people, cars. I purposefully don't have the radio or tv on for background noise when I'm home usually - if I need to know something I watch or listen and it goes off. I also crave solitude where the phone isn't ringing and things aren't being requested.
