As the Summer wound down, and it was time to go back to school, I reminisced on how amazing my time at home was, and remembered the little things I rejoiced in reacquiring when I returned home in May.
Thick Toilet Paper
The luxury of having soft, double layered, brand name toilet paper is something I won’t forget. And you only have to use 2 squares of it!
The school dining hall food has ruined me, and my appetite this summer consisted of Honey Nut Cheerios and Muenster cheese. Besides my major setback in dieting and pickiness of foods, I have the kind of mother who makes meals based on what the family, or individuals in said family, like. No more vegetarian eggplant lasagna… hello regular meat and cheese lasagna!!
I have grown up sleeping in a Queen-sized bed, or as I like to call it, due to my youthful self, a Princess-sized bed. The switch to the skinny Twin Bed made it difficult in the beginning to fall asleep, and there’s also not a lot of room for a second person ;).
She nags and nags and nags. But she cares, and last year I called her every week, sometimes more often. Whether I was just saying hello or I needed help with laundry, she will ALWAYS be my go-to.
By the end of the summer, it hits me as I realize that I didn’t spend as much time with my dad as I could have. Our little moments together are so much fun, and there is no one out there that could match my dad’s silliness. I always miss our inside jokes and his life advice.
