Alone time is essential for me! I'm sound sensitive so I need that time where there is absolutely NO noise other than what nature provides!

Take yesterday as an example. It was Breathes' birthday so the four of us spent it with his family. We went bowling. Not my favorite place to be because of the sound level. Then off to his mom's place for pizza and cake. A whole afternoon filled with noise! My kids are extremely talkative, Breathes is talkative, his mom is talkative, his sister not so much (she probably couldn't get a word in edgewise! lol) Sound wears me out, I become exhausted. I need time where there is no sound in order to reconnect with myself.

It's hard to come by in a small apartment, that's for sure. I manage but it isn't always what I totally need. Sometimes it's me zoning in front of the computer, turning everything else around me off mentally.

Escaping to the bedroom does have to happen & the shut door policy is in effect.

Opps, just remembered an errand to run before work. Later.

Default Closing the communication gap

With a title like this you would think I would have something deep and meaningful to say. Nope! But the intercom system between floors is working great

Things are going very nicely. I had Redpepper's parents down to the suite and they were pretty happy with the work done. I must admit I am eyeballing that connecting wall...we'd still have a door but not having RP and family needing to go outside would be nice. Patience as always...seems to be the key to everyone being happy so far in this grand adventure

Secretly I just like building stuff

If you're having a hankering for building stuff we have a couple of projects on the go (jk, I know you have plenty to do in your own place).

Default Benefits of being together

Tonight I got to share in a very mundane but very inspiring event. Redpepper's dryer died yesterday and she told me what happened when I was at work. I jumped on Craigslist, located a dryer close by and sent the link to PN while she called him to tell him the link was coming. Last night, while her and I went to see Harry Potter, PN and LB checked it out. Today me and PN pulled the old dryer out, took my truck to get the "new" one and for the cost of a service call they had a working and more updated dryer. Meanwhile Redpepper was doing the nightly tasks of their house. Afterwards I sat with their son (LB) for a while before he went to bed and then the three of us enjoyed a seasonal tea and light chat together. After that I went back to my suite to watch a movie and they carried on with their evening. There are definite benefits to having more adult hands around. PN and I work well as a team; we are a good mix of planning and reckless action that gets things done without anyone losing a finger!

This was a simple thing but one that showed me how mutually benefitcial this can be...so far so good

you are far more patient than I, especially standing around in the cold while PN figured out what the heck.... I find it hard to be patient with him, I was VERY grateful you took it on and that you seem to got him in ways that I never have. Thanks baby
