I have needed to go to Ikea for 3 weeks now, and every morning I wake up and say, "Today I will go to Ikea and get that one solitary part for AK's curtain rod." I've been avoiding it, because I'd rather stay home.
|This little bird decided to join me in my homebody status by flying into my kitchen a few weeks ago.|
I do leave my house, but not voluntarily... it's for soccer, ballet, scouts, groceries. Becoming a homebody has been a new experience for me. Even Mr. Man is baffled, he has always thought of me as a bit of a shopaholic. The truth is... I love being home. When the kids are at school, I'd rather sit at my desk, look out at the hillsides and write rather than shop. There is a contentment I feel in my house, that I have never felt before. During this month of giving thanks, I'm giving thanks for not just a house... but a beautiful home.
P.S. Have you entered Quite Contrary Mary's giveaway yet? I am also a big fan of A Tree Grows In Brooklyn and Coconut Oil. Coconut Oil is seriously our go to product in this house, just like Windex was in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
