I visited my parents yesterday for a birthday meal and to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving (mom is Canadian). The house is located far off in the suburbs and doesn't have the sound of a highway in the background. I still have a house key and I don't go there very often. I open the door and smell the food being prepared. My older sister still lives at home and is sitting next to the cat. A house of introverts! Overall, it feels calm and quiet... and, compared to the rest of what goes in my life seems relatively peaceful. I'm guessing other peoples experience would be different... what is it like for you?
