It's President's Day so most corporations are not working today - um except the toy company I work at.

2/3 of the company is out traveling or sick. I was left with the Russian accountant and my quietest designer. Together we had the most pleasant day I've had in a very long time. We didn't turn on any music. Complete and beautiful silence.

In a job that is normally dominated by frantic meetings, interruptions for quick meetings as someone stands in front of my desk demanding my attention, complaints that we are not having enough meetings, etc. so a quiet day like today was a real treat.

Then to come home to pass husband on his way out the door to teach a class, only to spend an hour with baby and get her to bed by 7, well then I have a quite evening to get a massive amount of chores done that baby prevented in her attempt to dominate my every waking minute on the weekend.

ps. I didn't do a Valentine's day post but we celebrated on the 13th and it was a lovely evening thanks to my husband who picked some exceptionally nice presents, got 2 dozen roses and made dinner.

I never appreciated how wonderful silence is until I became a mom. Sounds like a great day to me.

Nice! I love my evenings and afternoons when everyone is sleeping. That's when I enjoy resting my ears and listening to... nothing!
