I've begun to realize lately that I value silence. A lot. As in, I don't really like to talk very much. I would much rather sit in silence than try to make forced conversation, and I appreciate those few friends with whom I can sit in a comfortable silence. The past few nights when I've come home from my job all I've wanted to do is just soak in the tub or lie on the couch with a book, or just go to sleep. De-briefing the shenanigans of the kids doesn't appeal to me; neither does hearing about anyone else's day. THIS. IS. BAD. !!!! Help!!!! Suggestions????
