Q Is For Quiet

 I am a queen.
Of my own kingdom.
I'm sure you can relate. Are you not king or queen of your home?
Ah, you see where I was going.....
But no, my royal status is not important much these days. What is important?? Peace and quiet!!!
Yep, that's me!
The family calls me the quiet police.
Have they not heard the term, Silence is Golden?
During the summer months. the kids are out of school and make much more noise than I am used to when doing what I need to do in a day. It's not like I get a summer vacation from life, so my days are pretty much routine. Anal for some, happiness for me.... anyway.... Then the hubby gets almost three weeks vacation. Ladies, I know you feel me.... I love him even after thirteen years, but day in and day out after three weeks I am going insane! I couldn't wait for him to go back to work! I should feel terrible, but really I don't. A few hours apart a few days a week keeps a marriage happy, not sad.
And I get my silence. Happy wife is a happy life they say, whomever they are....
I live for silence in this busy, noisy, buzz of a city I live in. Half of a million people all doing stuff at once and I live in the heart of it. I live for those moments I get with no music, no tv, no anything in my background. Just the buzz of the outside trying to get in my bubble, and the tick of the clock.
That's when I know I can do some of my favorite things like write poetry, meaningful blog posts, or read. You know how I love to read. I'm the type who gets distracted easy so sound is a no-go when I read. That should be a no-brainer though.

So, how many of you are as anal about quiet time as I am??? I know I am not alone.

  2. Ah, nothing like the sound of silence! I love the first half of the day when I get my quiet time save for the wheeks of my guinea pig. I call that my 'happy hour' when the boys are in school and the hubs at work!

  3. I too need my quiet time. Thankfully I get a lot of it during the day while everyone is gone because with the amount of noise they all make when they come home I'd lose my mind :)

  7. Oh yes, I join you in your pursuit of quiet -- I've been known to turn off the A/C and be warm rather than constantly listen to it!

  8. I was a nanny for a family of 4 children that was SO noisy compared to my house growing up. I was always asking them to do things quietly. Sometimes we just need quiet time

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
