I'm sitting here at the table in the still of the morning. All doggies and people are sleeping soundly (except for DH who has already left for work). I hear the ticking of several clocks and the whir of the laptop. Near silence.

A rarity here lately.

Life in our little village has been rough. Jill has been acting up more than usual and you really never know what's going to happen next. She is defiant, back chats and has mood swings like you can't imagine (just to name a few). In the heat of the moment we remind ourselves this is not how our little darling normally acts.. she has a lot of stuff jumbled up inside and is trying to deal with it all.

Jack hasn't been acting out nearly as bad (yet).

No word from The Office. No phone calls, no emails. Total silence. My nature is to second guess why it went from a 9-1-1 must-get-the-transition-started-NOW to nothing. Ziltch, zippo, nada. Trust me, I'm the Queen Of Over-Thinking and my mind has been spinning. The reality is, it's a big group of workers that need to participate and I bet they are having a tough time getting everyones schedules to jive.

No complaints. We'll take whatever extra time we have and run with it.

Here at the table I know I will soon long to see their little bed heads bobble down the hallway each morning. I know I'll remember the sounds of their laughter wafting downstairs and all things Disney playing in the background. I'll miss their incessant chatter and bantering. I do believe I will then rue the silence.

Bring on da noise!

Oh poo...I just caught up on the last couple pages of posts and read that Jack and Jill are not staying with you forever....

Wow...silence in YOUR house? All those dogs and two 5-year olds and coo-coo clocks? How nice. Hope the silence came with a good cup of coffee.

Chin up. Even when Jack and Jill leave, I anticipate another blessing not far behind them...

I just pulled a card for you regarding the situation with Jack and Jill. I pulled one of the best cards in the deck, The Sun card.

This symbolizes success, fulfillment, opportunity, optimism, warmth, friendship, blessings, spiritual victory.

This indicates a time of joy, hope and celebration, good fortune, health and happiness.

When I was going through a particularly bad time in my life (divorce), I wore a sun necklace to remind me of all of the goodness surrounding me.

I wish you all the best with the energy of the Sun card as you move forward.
