What I know for sure...

This week I have the intensely pleasurable opportunity to spend the entire week at home in Ohio visiting my parents with M and L in tow.
I love Ohio - way more than I ever did when I lived here.  I never appreciated this area and all of it's little quirks when I lived here, and literally counted the hours until I could pack up my bags and move to the big city (I wasn't really thinking "Peoria, IL" at this point).  These days I love nothing more than coming home for extended visits.  Whenever I come home there are always things that I know I can count on.

These things I know for sure....
  • There will always be a pan of my dad's rice krispie treats waiting for me when I pull into the driveway.
  • I will always sleep extremely well.
  • There will always be coffee waiting for me when I wake up.
  • I will always find hairs I need to pluck in the crazy magnifying mirror in the upstairs bathroom.
  • Miles will always get to go on a bike ride.
  • I will always be over-indulged
  • My dad will always fall asleep sitting up in the wingback chair.
  • I will always get to eat delicious food.
  • I will always make at least one trip to Tiny's Dairy Barn.
  • My parents will always take very good care of me.
  • I will always be happy to arrive.
  • I will always be sad to leave.
  • There will always be tears shed on the drive back to Illinois.

There's just nothing like "going home". Glad you had such a great week.
