Things we’re looking forward to when we return

Over the last ten months we’ve had some amazing experiences, but we’ve also missed many of the comforts of home. Here are the things we’re most looking forward to:

Food – we’re craving a lot of foods that we haven’t had in a long time:

  • breakfast cereal
  • properly cooked toast (not just bread; not steamed, dry, or cooked on only one side)
  • buttermilk blueberry pancakes
  • waffles with strawberries and whipped cream (Christmas morning)
  • salads
  • vegetables
  • peaches
  • sushi
  • brown bread
  • fresh bread with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and chilies
  • good pizza
  • Italian pasta
  • lasagna
  • fajitas
  • a good steak
  • turkey dinner (good thing we’re coming home just before Christmas!)
  • roast beef and Yorkshire pudding
  • barbequed ribs
  • popcorn with butter and salt
  • Patrick’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
  • Purdy’s Sweet Georgia Browns
  • Dairy Queen Pecan Mudslide
  • peach pie (can you get that in December?)
  • pumpkin pie (Patrick – I know that I can get this in December)
  • good dark chocolate
  • tap water that we can drink
  • a decent martini (Patrick)
  • good coffee (Diane)
  • red wine (both of us!)

By the way, we’re available for dinner invitations almost every night.
Also,

  • hot showers with water pressure and no exposed electrical wires
  • a hot bath
  • going to the movie theatre
  • seeing any good movies we’ve missed while we’ve been away
  • a big screen television (Patrick –how sad it that)
  • hockey (Patrick)
  • sitting by a warm fireplace
  • rock climbing (Patrick)
  • our own bed
  • running
  • our cats (more Diane than Patrick)
  • and most of all, our family and friends
