Ten Good Things About Coming Home From Vacation.  Ten on Tuesday

  1. Sleeping in one's own bed with the perfect mattress and the perfect pillow and the perfect quantity and weight of blankets and the perfect ambient temperature.

  2. No more laundramats. Washer and dryer just a few steps away.

  3. No more sand. In everything.

  4. Reunion with beloved pets.

  5. Reunion with beloved job. Well, this one maybe not so much.

  6. Reunion with belov–, well, with own car, with its own long-familiar quirks and settings.

  7. Return to familiar routine. Change, i.e., vacation, = good; stability, i.e., familiar routine = good, too.

  8. Comfort of one's own home, arranged and furnished and decorated according to one's own taste. 

  9. Access to full contents of closet, not just part that fit into suitcase. Hello, beloved ratty bathrobe! Hello, favorite clogs that were too heavy to pack!

  10. Opportunity to flaunt one's tan/photos/tales of exotic adventure before one's colleagues and bask in their envy. No sin in this, just a fact of life. As long as returnee limits her flaunting to modest levels. If modest levels exceeded, all bets off.

  11. Did I mention sleeping in one's own bed? The importance of this cannot be overstated.
