Wiped Out

imageNo matter how great the place you're visiting is, there's no place like home. I'm ready to go home and see the Charming and Beautiful Susan and my little Allie. Tomorrow Allie turns three and that only makes me miss home all the more.

This is typical of being away from home. Strange bed, strange food, and strange schedule wear you down, make you moody, and make you sad. What's the answer?

Suck it up. Before you know it, the trip will come to an end, the tables will turn, and you're disappointed that the trip was over so soon. That's typically the way the cycle works.

Gratitude is the best attitude. Be thankful for the opportunity to explore new horizons and thankful that home is such a great place to return to.

I always feel like that on trips, too! And I feel so guilty for not enjoying myself more--because I'm usually having a good time--just prefer my "stuff" and my people!

Enjoy your last couple of days; you'll be home soon. :)
