Good Morning from the lobby (aka: our living room) at the Black Bra Inn... Liam & I have been here since 5 a.m. Liam and our next door neighbor were having coughing fits. Liam's was from allergies. Thank goodness for Netflix on my computer... That leaves me pecking away on.my phone.
We are only days away from sleeping in our house! Yesterday l saw trash cans along a street. They made me homesick; soon we will be putting our own trash out.
Hotel staffers know my name. To my face they call me "Linda.". I have to wonder if privately they use a qualifier: "You know, the black-bra woman who's usually in the lobby at the 5 a.m. Shift change?"
meanwhile at the house, our mattress and bed springs have returned to our bedroom. The stacked pair looks like a squatter holding firm for our imminent return. We are waiting for the floor finishes to be completed and for the smell to go away.
Once in the house, we will probably leave the bathroom light on as we have in every place that we have slept this summer. It's a comforting beacon at 2 a.m. in a place that isn't home.
Once in the house, we may not venture out for anything other than school and work... And meetings, gymnastics, floor hockey, soccer, Boy Scouts, trumpet lessons. Looks like penciling in AT HOME on the calendar needs to happen for us to do some serious nesting.
Yes, I must get out of here... I just helped a British couple operate the coffee brewer in the lobby and then provided travel tips for Boston.
Sometimes dusty, dirty, and demanding... Here's to home.
Happy Hump Day...
