The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

if you are in high school...

If you are in high school, please read this post.
If you are in middle school, please read this post.
If you are in elementary school, you don't have to read it. (you already think your parents are grand!)

I am excited.
Like the super-de-duper-de-can't-sleep-jittery kind of excited.
My parents are coming to Chattanooga tonight to see our house (sans a mortgage contract or furniture but I am calling it ours!) then spending the night. I am making grilled hamburgers and veggies for dinner - hopefully the weather holds or it will be the George Foreman for us and well - hamburgers just lack something on the GF Grill.
I am so excited that they are coming that I can barely contain myself. My hours at work today are going to be long and slow - I already feel it.
I can't even tell you how much I miss my folks. Would I have said this 5 years ago? In middle school - when everyone else got to do things I wasn't allowed to do? or high school - when nothing is "fair"? or even college - when we fought over a "fair" curfew and me staying out late with a cute boy?
Nope. I wouldn't have.
But now I am. I am confessing to all the world - I am 25 and I miss my parents.
Please don't get me wrong - I love my life. I am crazy about my husband and I know that he is my "new" family. I like my job and I am excited about buying a house and "settling down".
But I miss my parents. I miss being able to just hang out with them, talk to them, the smell of their house (and don't get me started on that one or I might cry this morning - they just had their house renovated and not only is it not going to look like home, it is going to smell different. Excited but not excited.).
I am so happy that they will be here, spending the night in the house we live in just once more before we move into our new house. They can't get here fast enough.
