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)

Thanksgiving Holidays

Usually, I’d be excited to spend some time off with Ross during the holidays. When we were both in college together, we would look forward to being off of school at the same time so we could spend time with each other without worrying about class.

Unfortunately, the college lifestyle that I live no longer applies to Ross. While I prepare for the Thanksgiving holidays, he just gets to keep on being busy with work without a vacation.

We have experienced many transitions together since he graduated and started a job, but one of the hardest ones to grasp is that he doesn’t get vacations from work like I do in college.

Making time for each other isn’t always the frustrating thing to deal with, but having free time and not being able be with someone during that time is a little more irritating.
