Thankful Thursday - Home Sweet Home


As much as I do love visiting my family, taking a 12-hour journey as a temporary single parent with 3 small children twice in a two-week period of time is, shall we say, a bit of a challenge. As you can see from the photo above, trying to take a picture while driving with 2 whiny toddlers and 1 hungry infant didn't work out so well for me.

We returned to the great state of Indiana on Monday evening and I cannot even begin to tell you how nice it is to be home!

All of a sudden, our extremely uncomfortable and insanely noisy bed just isn't all that bad because, well, my husband is in it with me.

And those huge spiders that crawl in from the woods out back? Not so terrible, because it means I'm home.

It's amazing how a change of scenery - even a short one - can make you so much more grateful for the things you're used to. I am so thankful to be home and enjoying my family, my house, and my AIR CONDITIONING!!! :)

What are you thankful for this week??

I am thankful for antihistamines because my allergies are just CRAZY this week! I kept sneezing last night and the kids were taking turns saying "bless you"...too cute!
