Dust balls

Do you know what it's like to be in a house all by yourself??
It's quiet.
And clean.
And empty.
And you can run around in your underwear and only worry about someone knocking on the door to see you.
And you can eat on the couch and not feel bad because you told your kids they couldn't.
And you can go to the bathroom by yourself.
And you can watch non-cartoon television.
And you can watch the new dust balls form and know that they aren't going to get thrown around by cars.
And you can...be by yourself.

But I do miss them, just a little bit.
