It's Good to be Home!

It's always nice to go on a vacation, even if it's just a few days.

Sometimes that's all anyone can get away with, but it's nice to get away.  It's nice to not be home and having to deal with the normal chores that grown-up life brings (doing the dishes, laundry, yard work, etc).

I do enjoy a good vacation and everything that goes with it, it's relaxing and you get a chance to recharge a little and get yourself back to neutral.

This weekend for me was my lone vacation of the year (of the last two years actually) and it was spent in Watkins Glen, NY for the Wine Festival that occurs at the speedway there in Watkins Glen.  I had a great time.  Not a huge fan of wine, but $30 and you taste as much as you want?  Sign me up!

My wife and I spent the weekend being wino's with some good friends.  Wine tasting all day followed by drinks on the balcony of our hotel overlooking the lake at night.

All that being said?...I think coming home may be the best part of a vacation sometimes, not all the time, but definitely a lot of times.

Think about it.  You spent X amount of time away from home and then that last day comes that you are away and you think, "that was a good time", but then you move right on to, "I can't wait to get home!"

I don't know, that's what goes through my head at least.  Who doesn't like coming home to their own house or apartment (or whatever your living arrangement is)?

I love to come home after a good vacation because it's just that comfort level I guess.  There's nothing like sleeping in your own bed or sitting on your own front/back porch (if you have one or both of course).

To come home is just that, it's 'home', it's where you know everything and everyone (or in my case, no one!).

So in short, I like a good vacation, but there's nothing like coming home!
