Here’s what I’m listening to today:

  • cement mixer
  • guy pounding the daylights out of installing the new hardwood floor in our family room
  • tile delivery truck
  • dogs barking at tile delivery truck
  • masons pounding the daylights out of prepping the chimney
  • some kind of bad tween-y music from an iPod that’s not plugged into headphones
  • a stone cutter operated by the aforementioned mason
  • some kind of saw operated by the aforementioned floor guy
  • my 8 year old singing some kind of Five for Fighting song
  • stones being dropped by a high height by Mr. Mason
  • wood flooring being dropped from a moderate height by Mr. Floor Guy
  • hammering from Mr. Floor Guy
  • phone ringing (Hi Mom)
  • gravel driveway crunching with arrival of a JC Penny truck
  • dogs barking at JC Penny truck
  • drilling by audio/visual installer
  • cell phone of Mr. A/V
  • Polish conversation of Mr. Mason and crew
  • clanging of debris hitting the dumpster
  • slamming of porta-potty door

(Yes, I’ve got both a dumpster AND a port-potty. Don’t hate me ’cause it’s beautiful here at my estate….)

  • the scritchy scritchy scritch of dog nails as the Doodle duo try to escape the cacophony through an open door
  • brothers fighting over open Gatorade bottle
  • the clickety clack of the keyboard as I try to find some order in this chaos.

I’ll let you know if when I find it.

    Oh my goodness! You captured that so well! I’m a true fan of silence and this post actually tensed me up and wanted me to say BE QUIET! Good job. I hope you found some peace and quiet at some point.
