Brent: The House Is Too Quiet

Brent Andrews: Yesterday I had my wife and two children and a potential daughter-in-law laughing and exchanging presents and eating wonderful food and having a grand time in my home, and today they've all left for Memphis leaving me to an empty house and coffee with leftovers. Worse, my easy listening radio station has replaced the Christmas songs I've been listening to since November with its old stable of light rock tunes, most of them depressing in nature. I'm left to silence, and an empty house but for three dogs and a has-been writer - which is to say a place full of sensitivity and cunning, but lacking much immediate potential. Certainly it's a big change from yesterday morning, and all those unopened presents and excited voices … thank goodness for YouTube and Hank III. More here.

Question: Anyone else experiencing a post-yuletide letdown after a fun & full time w/family?
