I have a theme (or a bad habit). And that theme is I will have a post ready to go for my “little things” weekly section, but something else will inspire me more. So, that post gets pushed off indefinitely. And I write some random things instead.
But they come from the heart.
That’s gotta count for something?
While we were in Vegas, we had a good time, but there is just something wonderful about coming home. I wanted to share the little things that made my heart sing yesterday.
It’s good to be home.
Coffee! From a pot! From my very own pot! Oh, how I missed this. The hotel we stayed at did not have a coffee maker. I yearned for it. And I yearned for a cup of coffee that cost less than $3.
And water. In a glass. Filtered water in a glass. Free filtered water in a glass! Know my soul is splashing in this container right now.
My pillow. My very own pillow. Devoid of stranger’s drool. How I missed thee.
My kids. Okay. No pictures of them, but they were the best part.
It is funny, because Ollie could care less that we are home. If anything, he is sad, because our house-sitter lets him sleep in our bed (resulting in our whole bedroom getting scrubbed before I will go to bed). Murphy was extremely excited. But then he spent the whole night guarding the bed in case Ollie got any ideas that he belonged there.
Fresh baked cookies. These are my new favorite cookies. I will have the recipe up next week. I have been thinking about them all week.
What’s your favorite thing about coming home? What do you miss the most?
It’s The Little Things: Enjoying what you have, where you are at. In other words, home.
Also, the sound of ch-ching! is absent in my house. I find this to be my most favorite thing so far about being back. Unfortunately my mind has not quite come to terms with the silence. And even now as I lay in bed in the dark, slot machines are invading my quiet.
But it still does not compare to my very least favorite thing:
Laundry. Ugh. Laundry. How I did not miss thee.
Let me get back to being grateful for water while I fold clothes and lose money to the slots in my head.
P.S. Tomorrow I will have a huge post up about our Las Vegas trip. Complete with a picture of our wedding from fifteen years ago (just don’t tell my husband I’m putting it on the blog!). : )
