Home sick ..on my way.

It's been 10 long months since I have seen my family. That is unheard of for me as I usually head home twice a year and this year I am only getting one visit most likely. Last year I went home three times, one of them was not for pleasure but my nephew and step-mom's funeral so I would prefer not to go home for those such events. This time I am headed home to see my older sister get married. Happy times are always a better time to go home. On Friday I gain a brother in law and I get to see my family too which is great. I really miss them. I don't often have a hard time living so far away but around the beginning of September I began to feel pain.

I think this comes from growing up attending the Persimmon Festival back home and being around for my sisters' birthdays, my mom's birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas and well into New Years. This time of year has me really missing the falling leaves, the snow, the christmas lights, and actually being COLD sometimes instead of living on the south side of hell, AKA Anaheim. I wish I could say that Anaheim has proven to be my dream home but it just hasn't. Anthony and I are neither one in our dream spot here but that also doesn't mean Indiana is either. I just miss my family! If my family lived here, I probably would go back to Indiana here and there but never to stay. It just wasn't my cup of tea.

I am very excited to head to Indiana tomorrow morning. I am also excited to see Hilliary get married and find her happiness. I am also happy to see Britt and my mom and meet Britt's new boyfriend. There is a lot going on back home and it will be good to be there for a few days. I will be there for 4 days and will squeeze everything I can into those 4 days. I might blog while I am there but I can't assure that so until then, have a lovely week and Happy Halloween!
