Okay, so we waited for her to leave to actually take over so that probably doesn't count as a real coup. And I doubt we'll go so far as to change the locks so the change of leadership is just temporary.
But for now, I'm just going to relish the moment and enjoy the peace. And the quiet. I'm especially enjoying the quiet.
And until she's back, I don't care what she paid for the new couch. I slept on the old one and I'm sleeping on this one.
