My single-dad muscles have atrophied

Day 3 of 4.5 is mostly done.
Alaina is traveling for work.
She misses us, and we miss her.
My single-dad muscles are wonderfully out of shape.
Atrophied, more like.
The kids are amazing. And asleep.
And the house is quiet.
Except for the usual house noises that come with two centuries of being lived in.
Loved in.
Laughed in.
I’m sitting in my third-hand, leather dad-chair, reading
“Tales of Old-Time Texas.”
An old fashioned seemed like the appropriate cocktail.
