A Bit of Quiet

Finally my house is quiet and I have a bit of space to myself in this busy weekend.  Today, Leo’s brother is up for a visit and seems to be sick.  That is not so good but Leo has gotten him some meds and hopefully all will be well. As well, a cousin of Leo’s was over for the afternoon.  And Massa and Eric and Michelle.  The house gets full and I get uncomfortable.  I get to feeling like I can’t move.  And of course I still can and I hate being like that cause I get very grouchy. 

My feelings make me think of the “I do what I do not want to do” passage in the Bible.  I wish I could just relax and enjoy having people around.  I mostly do when I plan it but when people interfere with my plans and are just sort of there and I need to do other stuff then I am – well, I don’t like myself.

Anyway, the busyness seems to have died down and Massa and Patrick are sitting and playing a few tunes on the guitar.  Music calms me and it was good to hear them.  Amazingly, for a while the TV was off and it was quiet – just the music , all sort of peaceful. 

I am waiting for Zakariya to wake up so he can take a bath, eat and go to bed for the night.  Last night he slept pretty well, from about 10:30 till 4:30, drank a bottle and slept again till 8:30.  I wonder what tonight will bring.

  1. I love to have people over and have my family around. I love to know that my house is inviting to people but when I decide I need a moments peace I really need to get it. The problem is that it is kind of rude to just go off by myself with a houseful of people, even though in reality that is what I need at that time. I wish I could take 15 minutes to go to my bedroom when company is over and that would be acceptable.

    Peggy – yeah, it is rude to go off on your own but probably worse to blow up in front of everyone. I have been known to do both! But I really do love having people over. So it is a dilemna.
