We all work so hard to provide for our families and this world is so stressful that sometimes we all need a reminder that it is fine to enjoy our own homes. It is free of charge and no one telling us what we can or can't do! There is no place like home.

My home away from home is in Qatar. I live in an apartment when there. It doesn't have a rooftop deck, but the roof access is opened. I take my folding lounge chair up their with my magazine, and take in the sun.
