After being gone for three weeks, I am appreciating my house much more. I love the squeaky stairs, my cold room, my never-at home roomates… all of it. I find that when I am home, I don’t want to leave it and I am finding reasons that I need to stay home. I have to work this weekend which is extremely frustrating because I would much rather stay home, clean and mow my lawn. At least I am appreciating my house more now that I have been getting very little time in it.
