It's quiet in the house when I wake up. (Too quiet!) Why don't I hear the kids racing around downstairs playing mountain lion (we went to the zoo the other day)?
Hmmm...I come downstairs and see the note.
"I took the kids to the movies. Enjoy some time alone!"
Oh, he is good! What will I do with this time?
--do the laundry
--clean the kitchen
--write my lesson plans
...but instead, I will grab my book, get comfortable on the couch, and revel in the two hours of quiet to do whatever I want!
