I spent 48 years caring about what people thought of me. I'm not spending the rest of my life caring about that anymore!

A Few of My Favourite Things

Back home from a great vacation, thank the Lord! Boy I love my family and miss them already but I'm so glad I'm home! Should I feel guilty about this? I don't know but when I woke this morning there was great joy in my heart because of these few favourite things:

1. Being able to sleep in my own bed. No one's kicking me, snoring beside me or turning on the t.v. because they can't sleep.

2. Not having to use the restroom in shifts. Can you imagine the patience you need to have to time your shower lengths? To remedy this I'd get up early to shower, brush my teeth and all that because I didn't want to be the one who was showering when the hot water ran out.

3. No one's put jelly in my peanut butter, and vice-versa. Okay, so I'm a spazz sometimes about my food touching on my plate. One of my pet peeves is seeing crumbs and other junk in jelly and peanut butter. I love peanut butter (the crunchy kind) and hate hate hate when someone's used a knife or spoon to double dip back into the peanut butter jar. At home my peanut butter's ALL MINE and CLEAN!

4. If I've laid something down in one place, it will be there when I return to it later. Same thing goes with leftover food, makeup, hairbrush, books/magazines, iPods etc.

5. Decision-making is quick and easy. No more wasting 30 minutes to decide if we want to eat at a casino, or a restaurant, or fast-food or potluck. We talk about it as we're driving!

6. Not having to change your cellphone ringer tone. What are the odds four of us would use the same ringer tone? Scary when you think about it.

7. Peace and quiet. Nothing's on but internet radio (1Faith), sipping my favouriet raspberry tea and just enjoying solitude.

8. Not having to fight with my tweens and others to use the PC. Where are all the wi-fi hotspots in Vegas anyway?

I love my family and I'm so grateful to God that He allowed us to meet once again. But, I'm also glad I have this peaceful life to come back to.

Welcome back. I missed you :)

Visiting family is so nice.. but I agree, it's also nice to come home where things are the way you're used to them being. FOUR of you had the same ring tone?

unfortunately i haven't spent a holiday with my family in more years than i care to admit. just once i'd like to, but would have to get into some fervent prayer that it would go without drama.

thanks for stopping by to see me again. i answered your question in my comment.

Pssshh....peaceful? Here or there, I don't think I've been blessed by that concept. But I know exactly how you feel. My trip was great, love my family, miss 'em already, but MAN am i happy to be home.

I can't stand chunky peanut butter. In case you cared :)
