So the wife and kids are on vacation. They have been gone for over a week already and still have several days to go. I always think that some time alone will be awesome and I think about all the stuff I'll do and things I'll get done but after a few days, it gets a little too quiet. The areas where kids are usually playing and getting into things are just silent and empty. I hope the to-do list to keep me occupied until the weekend, otherwise I'll just have to pull the toys off the shelf and throw them all over the room just so it feels normal again.
