Homesick in San Antonio

Spending a little time away from home is refreshing, but I’m already starting to miss home a bit. Once I get home by the end of the week, I know there will be some changes to get used to:

  • For starters, everyone knows that the day after Thanksgiving means that everything will be kicked into Christmas-mode.
  • Second, I have to start preparing for the last couple days of class and finals immediately after I return to Thibodaux after being away all week.
  • Finally (the only one I am actually looking forward to), Ross will be moved into his new apartment by the time I get back.

I can’t wait to see his new home and how happy he is to be moved in. And of course, I’m counting down the days until I get to see him again. If that means having to deal with Christmas-enthusiasts and finals too once I get back, then so be it.

Vacation

Thanksgiving is a special time of year that people want to spend with their families and periods that the love and care about.

Today, my parents and I arrived in San Antonio, Texas to spend my week off. We have a lot of things planned like stopping at some of the best local restaurants, sight-seeing, and hiking.

Of course I am thankful that I am able to spend this time with my parents; unfortunately, I wish that I could be spending some of this time with Ross. We are getting to see so many things that I wish I could share with him. For now, I guess pictures will have to be as close to sharing this vacation with him as I can get.

So as I spend this holiday with my parents, I am reminded of how thankful I am for them and all the things they do for me (aka taking their full-grown daughter on a full-paid vacation). I am also reminded that no matter how far away from home I am, I’ll always have Ross waiting for me to come back.

(And this time, coming back with souvenirs)
