For the first time in 10 days, I am alone in the house. It seems so quiet.
Heather left yesterday afternoon. I was a good girl. While my voice broke a bit, I didn't cry at the airport.
I was a little more choked up as I left the airport, but still I did not cry.
About an hour after I dropped her off at the airport, I decided to call her house and leave her a message... and then I cried.
And as I typed that... I had tears in my eyes.
I love my family... and I hate that I don't get to see them more often.
I am hopeful that they will all arrive at my doorstep to celebrate Christmas with us this year.
So, I am spending a quiet day at home... the house is clean, the sun is shining... Life will pick up once Matthew is home from school as he has drums at 3:30... and I'll run to the grocery store while he is there. And tonight Alex has Drivers Ed lesson 4 of 6... that class ends next Thursday night.
But for now, I will enjoy the quiet... even though I'm missing Heather!
