Home. Where I long to be pretty much all the time. Except when I’m stuck here.
A’s truck broke down and he is muddling through the repair on his own. Long story short, it’s been two weeks of us being a one-car family. And that one car serves to get A to work and back each day.
Did you know that I have fantasized about being a one-car family before? (fewer bills! Better for our health! Better for the environment!) But in reality, it’s kind of a hassle. We live in the (small) town center, and can walk to the library, the convenience store, bank, and playground, so I cannot complain too heartily. Life is good. It’s just so… limited, especially when these last few precious weeks of summer vacation beckon us to explore beyond our immediate horizons. To get away while we can. To luxuriate in the lack of a schedule.
Since the girls and I are spending oh so much time at home, I thought I’d share some of it with with you. This is where you can find us. We’re discovering new corners of our home, finding old games, making up new ones, and having close-to-home adventures.
