HOME ECONOMICS shined another light on gratitude, family, relationships, and love. It is these lessons that help define the three siblings and their extended family and makes all of us enjoy watching their journey. 

Connor (Jimmy Tatro) decided he needed to go clubbing, but he wanted a wingman. Cue Topher Grace, his brother, Tom. Sarah (Caitlin McGee) decides she would go along, as well as the spouses. 

It’s hard returning back in time to a place you used to frequent. Things change. The crowd gets younger while you become older. There were many hilarious moments watching Connor trying to chat with a couple of very pretty women. Awkward, cringeworthy, yet totally honest. It’s not as easy as it used to be especially when Tom thinks he was given ecstasy. It’s all about the mind and letting go. 

In the end, sometimes you don’t even realize how good you have it in life. HOME ECONOMICS continually points out, it’s the simple things that make our lives so wonderful, and you don’t have to travel very far to find it. Now that makes me smile. 

HOME ECONOMICS is available to stream on ABC Television.
