After a tearful realization of how little time I've had with my brothers, parents and friends back home since I moved... I tore apart my work schedule and gassed up the car! (By "tear apart" my work schedule, I mean traded shifts like a responsible mad woman.)
I can't wait! Monday night thru Friday morning. Time itself can be luxurious when it feels extensive.
Here's something to think about (and then tell me): Which do you prefer, a hot shower in the winter or a cool shower in the summer? You can only pick one, and tell me why :)
I like a cool shower in the summer, because it reminds me of being a kid and all the long, sweaty hours I'd spend running around the neighborhood (within my boundaries, of course). Whenever I get out of a shower and feel humid all over again, I know I'm right in the thick of summer.
