My favorite time of day. . .
Right now my house is quiet...well all but the bazillion fans I have running to try and keep our house cool in this 100+ degree Missouri Summer heat wave and of course the smoke detector chirping because I forgot (again!) to put a new battery in it!
I love this time of night because my normally chaotic and loud house is calm and quiet. . .something I only experience when everyone is gone or after midnight! Although in summer time it happens less because my kids think summer means they do not have to go to bed at any particular time!
This time of night I can get work done, like finally cleaning off and wiping down the table, loading the dishwasher, clipping coupons, and listing items for sale on Amazon! Sure I could have done these things earlier in the day, but it never seems to work out that way between driving this one here and that one there. Then there is also the phone calls, sick kids, whiny neighbors and hungry husbands to deal with as well!
I don't know what it is about this time of the day. . .but I just seem to get more work done at this time. My best friend and I call it "working well under pressure" when we end up doing out finest work in the wee hours of the morning the day of a deadline or event! What ever it is, I will bask in the glow of the ceiling fan that is missing one light and has a slight wobble for a few more minutes while I check out Facebook one last time, see if Amazon has any new, interesting. . .and free Kindle books for me to download (I found this one the other day and could not pass it up. . .especially with a price tag of FREE!), or see if it is my turn in one of the six Scrabble games I am currently playing (and mostly loosing) on my Evo and then head to bed finally.
