Home Sweet Home

I'm back in Tennessee. My mom was worried about the roads, but they were all clear by the time I left at 2:45PM. Well, the main roads were clear. And by the time I got farther south, all of the roads were clear. There's still a little snow on the ground down here, but it's definitely melting.

I almost wrote that I'm back home in Tennessee, but that didn't seem accurate. I definitely feel like a visitor here. Everything familiar and routine is back in Maryland - all of my stuff and my way of doing things. Visiting my parents' house can be weird because I'm not exactly special enough to be treated as a full-out house guest and yet, as I already mentioned, it's not the same as being in my own home.

If home is where the heart is, then where is my heart?

Home is where the heart is, so your real home's in your chest.
