Just home from work and the house is quiet and dark. There are a few advantages to working nights, one being less time away from my littles. Another is that when I come home the house is quiet and dark and I really can get a little time to myself. Of course, if I get on the computer I suddenly emerge from the quiet to discover it's well past midnight and I have children to care for at 7am, no matter if I'm ready or not. So I'll try to keep this brief and take myself off to bed as soon as possible. For now, though, the quiet is intoxicating and I'd like to drink it in for just a few more moments.
