Too Quiet

Son #2 was home for the weekend, and son #1 was around the house on both Friday and Sunday.  There was commotion and conversation.  There was clutter and noise.  Between the NFL draft and the NBA playoffs, the television was on almost constantly.  And now the house is quiet, too quiet.  Usually, I'm the kind of person who enjoys silence and solitude. However, after my kids have been home then leave again, the house feels big and empty.  I have trouble settling back into the stillness.  It's the end of the semester, and I have a mountain of work to do, so when I get home this afternoon, I'll probably be able to step back into my new life and appreciate the silence.  But for now, I'm missing my kids.
