I miss

Once upon a time I went to school…I had friends, we talked, hung out, laughed.
Once upon a time I lived at home…hours upon hours were spent talking, hanging out.
Once upon a time I went to church…I had friends, we talked, hung out, laughed.
Once upon a time I worked in an office…hours upon hours were spent talking, hanging out.
Once upon a time I worked in a school…HOUR upon HOURS were spent talking, hanging out.

I miss the talking. I’ve created my own problem. I hate talking on the phone, but since I work from home, it limits my interactions. Yep, I spend hours and hours with my computer, grumbling to my dogs. I spend many moments consulting an almost three year old who questions everything. And I spend a few minutes chatting with my husband. Yep, that is my day and today it feels pretty lonely. I don’t really get to talk and have a conversation, hear others perspectives and tell them mine. And on the off chance that it does happen, it is layered with the distraction of kids. I miss the talking…communicating.
