Alone at last

As much as I love my children, I also love my quiet time alone. My dad picked Christian up a bit ago. He is spending the night there. Daniel is out and about outside with his friends. It is almost to quiet. I think I might order myself a pizza and get an on demand movie. Daniel will probably end up staying at his friend's house. I at times find myself missing my kids when they are gone. I spend so much time missing them that by the time I figure out what to do with my time they are back home.

I had an incident last night where one of my sons friends just kind of said he was moving ou of his house and wanted to move in to mine. Before I really had a chance to respond he was bringing over his clothes and computer. He is a wonderful kid but I just can not take on another child. I am not the most assertive person and had no idea what to do or say. I told him he could spend the night and cool off from whatever transpired at home but he would have to go back home or find somewhere else. That was a hard one for me. I did not get much sleep lastnight because I was trying to think of the right thing to say.

I am off to read the newspaper and enjoy my quiet time.
