What A Way To Celebrate

Today I began to pack to return home. It took a while, but I got it done. This wasn't the way I wanted to end. I never got to say goodbye to my roommates; they like to go home early on Fridays. That, and I like to sleep, a lot. Who doesn't like sleep?
Well, I celebrated turning 19 in a way I didn't want to. I packed to go home, and I'm 2200 miles away from family. So this birthday was bittersweet. While I enjoyed being in the company of friends (and a few people I didn't know) nothing beats celebrating a birthday than with family. But, that's just me.
Well, this time tomorrow, I should be landing back in Boston. However, I'm not looking forward to the three hour car ride back home. And that's only if the weather is good. Which, from what I hear, it's far from good. It's been snowing all day, much to my dismay.
America, here I come. I can't wait to be back home.

Our son was home in August for a month after being in HI for 19 months. He said the same thing about his birthday and last Christmas. Sadly we will miss him this Christmas too, but we stay connected on the phone pretty much hip to hip.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Merry Christmas To You & Yours!
