My wife is playing Sim City as I type this. The new Jessica Jones series is on in the background and we’re both glued to it around or other distractions. The boys are asleep; our last moment of relative quiet before the weekend gets underway.
I spent the day writing. My wife teaching. My boys undoubtedly running nonstop. It was a good, busy day. Ending it with quiet comforts is quite nice.
Of course, Jessica Jones is turning out to be one of the best shows ever. Quiet it is not. More surprising, Sims City is bringing about discussion of the proper role of local government. Turns out my wife and I may have fundamental differences of opinion on that. No quiet night there either.
The noise of the weekend appears to be unavoidable.
