Goodbye Nice Teenager, Dog, and House

As the week of teenager, dog, and house sitting came to a close I found myself disappointed at the thought of returning to my own home. I truly enjoyed hosting two parties, taking long walks around the neighborhood with the dog, and even jumping onto the carpool list. I knew I was all in when I began texting other moms more than my own friends. I know I’ll miss it. To put things in perspective, consider the list I complied comparing my home to the home I stayed in last week.

Brunch with friends in the "breakfast nook"

Brunch with friends in the “breakfast nook”

Two person kitchen table next to the stove vs eight person “breakfast nook” surrounded by windows

Heat that doesn’t reach the bedroom vs three fireplaces

Flamethrower vs double convection oven

Hand washing vs band new dishwasher

2,000 square feet vs 5,500 square feet

Dog vs five roommates

Any guesses which house is which? Well, I’ll let you think on that one. In any case, I am happy to be home surrounded by my lovely roommates, and I better not start comparing them to the dog. In case any roommates are reading, I love you all more than any dog!
