Since we've moved to New Zealand, people always ask me if I'm homesick. And I always say no. But ever since we found out we might be getting to move back for a little while, I have been feeling really homesick. I miss my family, my friends, the FOOD, the familiarity of the place I grew up. This is going to sound odd, but I miss shopping at Safeway and going to Pluto's and CPK (if you don't know what either of those are you are seriously missing out). I miss being able to pick up my cell phone and actually call my friends without it costing a fortune (and without getting screened because they don't recognize my international number).
And mostly? I miss getting to see the people I love the most love the little baby I love the most. Mark commented how he absolutely loves watching his parents with Riley. How much they love her and adore her, and I totally agree. And I miss that with my parents. I miss getting to see them play with her and tickle her and ooh and ahh over how cute/funny/smart/special she is. I can't wait for that. :) And you know what? I'm pretty sure buggy can't wait either.
California here we come (in a month)!!!!
