Sounds of Silence

The kids made me take a picture of this sign at Chili's on Saturday night!  Funny, huh?! 

That was the last night we, all seven of us, were together.  :(

My house is too quiet.  I am really missing my boys.  The big one, and the littler ones... a lot. 

<sigh>

Well, today was hump day... another day closer to them coming home!

be well,
Dawn

I don't have any kids, but usually, when I find myself missing someone, I tend to crack open a bottle of vodka and do the laundry.  

Hope that helps.

I love the sign. I love that one that says unattended children will be given candy & a puppy! HA!

I love that hump day graphic! Did you make it?

I have been to a Chillies on my trips to America, I love the place. Portions are a bit big though for an average Brit!
Not long to go and the boys will be back.

Ha ha...  I've never noticed that sign before.  There is a Chili's near us but it is sooo loud in there sometimes.  They have the best hamburgers there I think..  Soon your men folk will be home... :)  Julie

Dawn,
Great photo!  I know it's quiet but I also know how much fun the boys are having.  After 40-45 years I still remember most of my Scouting camping trips.
Enjoy the peace.

((Hugs)) They'll be home before you know it hon. Try to do something you've been wanting to do for yourself but with a houseful where unable to do. It will make you appreciate the alone time a little bit at least. You wouldn't be a mom if you weren't missing your guys. (Hugs) Indigo
