So, for me, the first day has gone well.
I didn't cry.
Some salty water kind of spilled out onto my cheeks as I left Big Kid's school, but I'm not even counting that.
I watched South Park and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I caught up on a ton of work. I ate stuff without sharing. I cleaned the house as I chatted with a friend on the phone for an hour. I did some more work. I've sat in complete silence.
It has been quite nice!
But now I'm done and I'm ready for everyone to come home and tell me about their day. I want that far more than I want the additional hour to myself. I miss them already.
