Another thing I want: silence. I'd like maybe a half-day of silence around here. No dog hysterically barking at the growling, ferociously screaming cats. No baby yelling if I put her down. No one asking me for cookies or popsicles or yet another granola bar or more Easter candy or playing outside 30 seconds before I put dinner on the table. No one contradicting me when I answer a question put to ME, dammit. Just everyone being quiet for a little while. Maybe the windows would be open and there'd be a breeze blowing through the screens and I could hear the wind chimes out on the front porch. Like that'll happen anytime soon, but a mama can say she wants it, right?
