Wishing for quiet~




I'm moving slowly today, worked the weekend and then laid in bed until 1:00 this morning listening to partying neighbors. I will never understand the nature of someone who blasts a radio with 20 of their closest friends yelling and laughing and talking when they live in a neighborhood. You have to know you're disturbing your neighbors...and on a Sunday night? As much as I love my home, I find myself thinking that I need a plan to move out and to a more rural area when we retire. That's discouraging to me because this is the home I want to live in for the rest of my life. But the reality is, it isn't likely to become quieter as the years go on.
So poor me, I was awake most of the night and then overslept this morning until 9:00 so I already feel like my day is whizzing by. And I'm tired!
Enough of that!
The weather in the Mitten is beautiful, my windows are open and those neighbors have quieted down (I'd like to go over there and blast some Southern Gospel music into their hang-over hibernation!) Wait, I said enough of that...
The weather is beautiful and I have some housework to do so I should get motivated and put things in order because I see a nap in my afternoon. With the lovely temperatures and sunshine I might just have that nap in my hammock outside. I will have to make the most of this day off since I'm working next weekend too. The good thing about Monday off is that I'm guaranteed a quiet and empty house and a chance to spend my time as I please. As much as I love my family, they are at work and at the moment I don't miss 'em!
Hope all is well in your neighborhood!

Update: Housework done, everything back to bright, shiny and smelling good! One more load of laundry & a long shower next. A moment of silence please, as my coffee grinder has died. After that long shower it's off to Bed, Bath & Beyond with my 20% off coupon to get a new grinder. That nap might not happen after all.

I know where you are coming from Sara because noise gets on my nerves more the older I get. My wife and i would like a small cabin at the foot hills of the NC mountains where all we hear is the birds and other wildlife.
