Last night I drove back to the base to pick up a package that was accidentally delivered and sitting on my front porch. It was a cool keyboard I ordered from Best Buy that has backlighted keys and is wireless. I didn't feel like letting it sit out there until this weekend, and I also didn't feel like taking both my girls on a 4 hour roadtrip...because it stresses us all out.

So I left around 11pm and got there a little after one in the morning. I didn't have to be back in KC until 7 the next morning, so I went upstairs, took a shower and took a nap in MY bed. God it was awesome.

I was supposed to fill the car up with more things to bring back, but couldn't bring myself to do it. The moment I walked through my front door I felt what's been missing these past few weeks.

I think it's safe to say, that I will soon be back to my house...and maybe I will get lonely at times, but also generally more happy than I will be away from home.

I can't wait to sit in my extra comfortable office chair, at my desk that I can leave messy if i want too, and stare at my huge flat screen computer monitor, with my new ultra cool keyboard..and my awesome speaker system....I love my stuff. My bed, my nice sheets, my TV...all of it....and I'm going to enjoy it while I can, because in May it will disappear for a few months while we are getting settled in NY.

And I'll love how I can do all the laundry I want (I get weird about sheets and blankets over a week old..and I like fresh towels) without someone mentioning how high I'm making their water bill. It's little quirks like that, that make it all worth it.

So if I don't post in here for a week or so...I'm on my way back home and getting my cable and internet back. Can't wait. :)

im glad you see you chose to go home since it will make you happier and you wont have a mom stressing you out over stupid shit. but i have to admit since you left it has been weird. i got used to you being here real fast and now you arent. im not gonna lie, the no children thing is pretty sweet but still. hmm. mom and dad are still being immature and mommy just isnt the same. i dont know what to do..i guess i could stop doing everything but see i dont want to..oh well i will figure it out. but even though you are happy to be home you better still come down and visit me and blair a few times. and we might take a weekend off of work and come to stay with you. cause we all know how much of a party we would have. haha. well that is about it i thought i would leave you a comment on here rather than xanga since you like this more. i will talk to you later. love you, linsy
