Home Sweet Home

We made it back home. It was a fun trip, but there is something SO nice about getting back to my own place. I love my house. I LOVE that it cooled off this evening and we all hung around outside for hours until we were chilly and had to come inside. I LOVE that the grass grew about 6 inches while we were away and all the trees are budding out now. I love that Lizzie couldn't wait to swing on her swing, slide down her slide, and make sure everything in her playhouse was how she left it.

Things that are always better at my own house after a trip:
#1 The bed, of course...there is nothing like my own bed
#2 Sorting thru the mail
#3 Hate to admit it...but I love my own toilet!
#4 The cats and the horses were excited we were back with them
#5 Not having to worry about anyone else's schedule, or being too noisy in the hotel...I could go on...but the point is...

I am glad to be home!

Reliv,

Totally agree about being back to your own bed and toilet after a trip. Very funny!

Yes... not sure I should have mentioned the toilet - but it is true!

#3 cracked me up. I absolutely love being back in my own bed, too. And back at home in general - cooking in my own kitchen, curling up on my own couch, and puttering around in my own yard.

Citizen - so are you back home now? I will go check your blog and see...

You're welcome :)

That's a pretty funny coincidence!

This is why I go on a cleaning rampage before vacation. I want a fresh bed, a fresh toilet bowl, and a fresh kitchen upon my return that are ALL MINE

well, friar - I always cleaned house in case I die on the trip so no one will come in and see my mess - but you bring up a good point! I will start cleaning for my return instead - thanks!
