Homesickness

I have come down with a nasty case of homesickness.  Medicine...Coors Light.  Today is such a beautiful day, pristine blue skies, got to sleep in a little, husband and baby in tow, but I can't seem to truly enjoy it because I have this dull sadness knowing that home is out of reach.  I know if I were sitting in Orlando right now I would be bored and hot and none of my friends or family would be around, but I still miss it.  The beer is helping a little.  It's so hard when you live your whole life in one place.  It's like, now that I have a family, meaning husband and baby, THIS is the time I should be around those I love.  I feel like I wasted all that time I could have moved away and sowed oats by staying at home.  Now I want to be home and I am not.  There is no choice in the matter, Alex's job is here.  My life is here now.  I love it here, most days.  I need to suck it up and enjoy the rest of my day.  Alex and the baby are napping.  It's a great day.  I need to snap out of it.  SNAP BITCH SNAP.
Ok.  I'm better.  I think I just needed to vent a little.

Also, I watched The FIghter last night with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. GOOD MOVIE!  I see why it won so many awards.

Also,  I go to church with the governor of Florida.  Sup wit dat?

I feel better, really.

  1. It was really tough for me the first couple years after I moved away, and I didn't even have a baby. It does get easier, and the trick is to build a "family" where you are.
