My husband is in Rhode Island and #1 son is in New Orleans, so I have the house to myself. I feel super selfish to be enjoying this fact, but they are having fun and they won’t have less fun just because I’m not missing them yet. I can exercise, eat what I want, watch what I want or have the house silent for reading. I can work on sewing projects without feeling bad about making a mess in the living room, or I can work all the time without interruptions.
That’s how I’m imagining it, at least.
