So in my travels around the Internet, as well as the country, I have learned something. People like lists. So here is what I miss most.
The Five Things I Miss Most
- I miss baths. Nice, hot baths where my whole body can stretch out as opposed to looking like the cowboy in sitting in an old metal tin. Baths were my drug and this Momma is Jones-ing.
- I miss having a bed I could walk all the way around. I didn’t know this was going to be a big deal but have you ever made a bed that you had to be on physically? Trying to lift a corner and stretch a fitted sheet onto it while sitting on it? Darn near impossible. In fact, if I can figure this out, send me on the energy crisis, climate change, and MidEast peace.
- I miss storage for clothing. I don’t mind that we have streamlined and I don’t miss my walk-in closet. Okay, that’s a lie. My old closet was the size of my bedroom. I do miss it a
lotlittle. But I miss being able to pull something down or out of a drawer without having to lift my bed. Or climb on something for overhead storage. I know it’s a first-world problem but it does get annoying.
- I miss being able to send my kids to their rooms and it being a separate room instead of a separate bunk. I am seriously considering buying a tent and making it the Time Out tent. And lest you think I am abusing my children, it is I that will go to the Time Out tent. And yes, there will be wine.
- I miss alone time with my husband. Okay, I know where everyone’s mind just went and yes, that… but also just time to talk without interruption. Being only 15 feet away from the kids makes it difficult to stay focused on each other.
So those are my Top Five Things I Miss While Living on the Road. I suspect that list may grow.
