Finding Silence in the Noise

It has been the end of a very busy week.  I celebrated not only my hudbands birthday, but mine as well.  Then we had to do a joint celebration with my family.  I also start a new job on Monday which I am sorta dreading,  I have been at home for a few years now and have enjoyed spending the time haning out with my children as they grow.  This will be a hard transition.  Instead of my husband understanding how this can make me feel all he sees in the join in not having to be the onlye bread winner. 

Thus, I needed to find some silence in all the noise in my house from having people over.  The kids and hubby were watching some navy seal training show so I decided to sit on the deck in the Tiki torches and cathc up on my podcast.  Guess what?  I can't even do that in solitude.  Hubby comes out asking why I am all pissed off and don't want to hang with the boys.  I just needed alone time....actually what I needed was time away from all the masculinity I am surrounded in all the time. 

I bought shoes today and went shopping for new clothes and hated it!  What girl hates shopping.  I hope there are others out there that can relate to this new feeling and challenge I am going through.

Feedback welcome.
