Being home has been a little strange. At first it was unreal. It was strange to be in my own house, my own room, to see my family.
The first night home I met my sisters boyfriend. It was a bit strange to be meeting someone new while still a bit confused about being home.
I saw my sister in Law who is 7 months pregnant. Last time I saw her she was skinny leanne and now she is pregnant leanne. I didn’t get to see her growing, so it was so strange to think there was a big baby in there. She’s beautiful pregnant though. Ah I’m so excited for the baby.
Saturday we had dinner at my dads. We were supposed to have lunch or maybe a late lunch but we kept snacking to the point that we weren’t very hungry and it was getting to be later and later. I ended up falling asleep on the couch for a time, trying to recover from my cold. Eventually we had some delicious salmon, asparagus and potatoes. Yum yum!! I’d been dreaming about that meal in Greece.
I gave them all their presents which they loved, atleast I think they did ;). And Leanne and Eve and I now have matching bracelets, Yay.
On Sunday my mom and sister and I went to the Zoo in Tacoma. I’d never been beofore, it was a pretty small zoo. We got to see the baby snow leopards. They were SO cute!
We ended the day at Duke’s chowder house. I had fish tacos and some cajun chicken chowder. It was delcious.
And after that exciting weekend I’ve been sitting on my butt. It’s been hard. I’ve been sleeping in and reading some, but not a lot. It’s hard when I don’t have a job or any money. I applied for a few jobs and I’ve been looking at volunteer opportunities because I am SOOOO bored. It’s hard to go from traveling Europe for 3 months to sitting at home with nothing to do.
I guess I expected to be more busy when I got home, to be more active, to constantly be around my family, but it just hasn’t been possible. Hopefully things will change here soon.
I’m beginning to get this ‘opposite of homesick’ thing.
