Solitude Standing

Wow! I can't remember the last time I experienced this... Practically alone and relaxed in my own house, listening to music of my choosing at this time of the evening. This is generally the most stressful part of my day...the getting dinner, getting boy ready for bed, adults trying to talk to one another about their days and relax, time of day.

Scott's working late. Brendan's fed, bathed, and in bed (almost asleep, I think!). Beckett's napping peacefully after not napping all day! I have a pan of penne al' arriabata with sausage simmering on the stove, garlic bread in the oven, and a salad with a lemon and olive oil dressing on the table. I'm sipping a glass of shiraz and writing. My house is mostly clean. Not perfect, but better than it's been since Beckett was born. It's all good. Mostly.

I do hate that Scott is having to work late for him. He's been working incredibly long hours as his team gets ready to launch a new product.

But, I am thankful to have this moment of peace and calm for myself right now.

They are few and far between.
