Missing Home

     Today I am missing being home!  Cooking, cleaning, and just enjoying my home, being a home maker and a Mom!  I have been working full time for 10 1/2 months now and dont get me wrong, I mean, I love my job!  I work for great people in a very friendly doctors office.  I love all of our patients and they seem to like me too:)  I mean what's there not to like about that?  However, maybe it's just the time of year it is once again.  I want to be home baking, cooking and cleaning.  Truly, I miss it!  I miss being home when the kids leave for school and just taking my time to look around the house to see what needs to be done.  I miss sitting in my spotless kitchen all newly cleaned and shiny.  Then going shopping for whatever I might need that day. Coming home and eating lunch in front of the TV.  I miss baking cookies right before the kids get home from school!  I miss looking for a new recipe to try and just the smell of home baked goods from my own hands.  I mss being a stay at home Mom! 

     I am thankful for all the years I did get to be a stay at home Mom.  Although looking back now, there are many things I have come to appreciate and wished I had done with my time.  But most importantly is that I was there at all the cross roads with my kids. I guess that is all that really matters. But, now I want to be home to do all of those motherly domestic things that I stressed over all those years.  I just miss home.

     Lately it seems that everyone is bringing in garden tomatoes!  And I love it!  On Friday's we like to have a little snack at work and so today I decided to make some Bruschetta!  And boy is it yummy!

4 large garden tomatoes
4 cloves garlic finely chopped
4-5 fresh basil leaves finely chopped
Olive oil to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix it up and eat with triscuits or bagetts sliced and lightly baked.

Love this stuff!  Enjoy!
