Trying to get my head back in the game. It sucks. 😛 But I’m trying. I think coming back from leave is one of the hardest things ever to do. I miss my family so much. 😦
Well, it looks like Christmas inside…but outside it’s almost 50 degrees and rainy!
My other half sadly had to work today and probably won’t be home till late, so I’m holed up in our little place by myself. I’m really feeling the homebody vibe right now, so I’m okay with that. I had a really lazy morning drinking coffee, reading the mail (only 2 cards this year, probably because everyone is confused about where the hell I am), and gleefully wrapping Other Half’s presents…which, as I’ve told him umpteen times now, aren’t really Christmas presents…they’re really just stocking stuffers, because we haven’t really done Christmas presents before but I had to have stockings. This year I actually wanted to decorate, where I was a total Scrooge last year. It happens. Life gets better. 🙂
I seriously feel like I must be the happiest person on the planet right now.
I’m so happy to be home, happy to be waking up next to my love this morning, so happy to have my kitty following me around meowing like an idiot…just. So. Happy.
I’m a real believer in the saying that sometimes you don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone. Being away from everyone and everything I love is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, but it truly makes the homecoming that much sweeter. Sometimes you have to feel the cold before you can enjoy being warm.
