Wish you were here ... or that I was there, maybe.

Things you miss about home when you're on vacation with extended family:
  • Your own bed
  • Your own bathroom
  • Deciding for yourself when each day starts and ends
  • Making quick decisions about where to go or what to eat for lunches and dinners
  • Walking around in pajamas as long as you please
  • Holding the remote
  • Knowing for sure whether that towel in the bathroom is a new one or not
  • Controlling the thermostat
  • Not living out of a suitcase
  • Doing laundry in machines you understand, and for which you know all the quirks
  • Knowing when the milk was purchased
  • Not feeling guilty about doing absolutely nothing.
