We both couldn't be happier with our home time this past weekend. It is always nice to get reacquainted with our little house, seeing as we are only there a few days every couple of months. We didn't fix the deck problem to be able to open the front door, but Craig did some investigating around and under the house, and determined the best approach to fix it. Since he didn't have the proper tools to fix it, the repair will have to wait until we return in April.
I actually found my inner domestic diva again and cooked up a couple of really nice dinners. I saved the best for Saturday night, marinated steak, sauteed mushrooms, and baked potatoes. We topped it off by sharing a small box of chocolates, some wine, and enjoying the ambiance of the fireplace. Yes, we had a very relaxing time, even with getting almost 5 inches of snow the last couple of days, and this morning I finally had to face the music and start cleaning up the house and doing the laundry that had piled up. With the house all put in order and the pick up packed, we started our trek back to the Company yard with our usual stop at the Wal Mart for food and a quick run through Jiffy Lube for an oil change in the pickup. Back at the yard, I went about for the second time today, putting our second home back in order by putting the clothes and food away. As much as we love being able to go home for a couple of days and relax, we also love being able to return to the truck and our life out on the road.<
