Depeche Mode song...sums up my feelings right now.
The day is coming to its end. Unexpected errands had to be run after picking up the kids, so we have only been home a bit. Dinner has been simmering, so at least that is almost done. The kids are off schedule, the dogs ate the spines of some of my cookbooks, the bickering is reaching epic proportions, but I am remaining calm. Music and a beer are certainly helping.
"Been waiting for the night to fall
I knew that it would save us all
Now everything's dark
Keeps us from the stark reality
Been waiting for the night to fall
Now everything is bearable
And here in the still
All that you feel is tranquility"
Breath in, breath out, and be.
