Simon & Garfunkle had it right: there is nothing like the Sound of Silence.
the Cat is happy - he has the recliner all to himself.
i am happy - i have the couch all to myself (but i'd rather have the recliner).
the Husband is happy for he is off to a SuperBowl (wait. can i say "Super-Bowl?" or will the NFL commissioner come after me? never mind then. Super Sunday)party at his former manager's home.
i decided to stay home and prepare for work tomorrow.
somewhere along the way, i changed. dramatically. you see, up until a few years ago, i hated being alone. could.not.stand.it.
now, i'm eating it up. loving it.
so, it's just me, the cat and some decongestant.
oh, and "Monk" on TV.
now if the drugs could just kick in, i could breathe again.
and enjoy my solitude.
