Last full day here

At times like these, I wish that none of my relatives read this blog - oh how I wpuld love for this post to be a bit of a rant. But I don't want to hurt anyone and I certainly do not want to need to make amends for writing something on my blog, so I will be vague and not really say anything I want to say - which as you bloggers probably know - defeats the whole purpose of a blog.

It is beautiful here. I have enjoyed painting every day. I have enjoyed the beach everyday, though I now look a bit like Lobster Girl. I have some paintings to bring home that I actually like. It has been nice to spend time with my sister and my niece.

But a week of vacation for me is too long. I NEED to go home. I will leave tomorrow afternoon and be home tomorrow night. I can't think of anything better in the whole wide world than my own little car, my own little house (modest as it is), my own little family, and my own little friends - even though they may not be multi-jillionnaires or world renowned.

Yes, my own little life sounds like my own little slice of heaven... Tomorrow.

Without assumptions I cannot read between the lines, so I will just wish you a nice Saturday and a safe journey home.

When you get back, you're going to have to always remember that you called your own life 'a slice of heaven'. I would like you to know that there's nothing little about it though. You touch a lot of lives.

I guess that's why they say "Home is where the heart is". It truly is.

Girl I have become more and more vague (I hate that).
Your own bed! AHHHHH
Your own meetings! AHHHH

I understand about not writing what you really want to say.

I've always enjoyed "home" more after travelling some.

I fully understand. I love to be with other friends and family and/or being in new places - it revitalizes me, BUT I so love coming home to my comfortable surroundings - home, people, etc. that I have grown to love so deeply over the years.

When later tomorrow arrives - I wish you a welcome back.

I hope that you have a safe journey as well.one reason is that my family knoes about my blog and I think that they do read it.so I don't do family rants as well.

I'm glad to hear someone else say that a week is too long, I'm always ready to come early!

Have a safe trip home my friend. It's always good to get away to realize that all you need is at home isn't it?

Banana Girl said...

Come back, refreshed and sassy to your own little friends! Have a safe and wonderful trip. Have you picked out a moniker for your artistic self? J

Welcome Home! I've been gone for only 2 nights, and I'm grateful to be home too.

It sounds as if it is time for little MC to get back to basics. I too like the comfort of my surroundings that are familiar. I can wander for a while but in the final analysis I like being home.
