Coming Home

I'm about to hop on an airplane and come back to New York from Florida. This has been a fun family visit, but also a bit intense and exhausting. I've got a pretty big family, and getting all of us together always leads to a lot of overlapping conversation and, well, noise. I don't function well in that environment! I miss my cat and Dave and my quiet little apartment!

It's been a good visit. I've spent a lot of time talking to my dad and getting to know my niece and nephew from Louisiana, who I hardly ever see. I also took my mom to dinner for her birthday and did "fun" suburban things like go to the mall -- I am having the TRUE Florida experience!

I'm looking forward to returning to my routines, though, and seeing Dave again!

Always good to be home and then to be back home.

One of the best things about going away is coming back home. We are definitely creatures of habit and it's hard to be habitual when you are in another environment. I hope you and Dave had a great reunion. I'm sure Armenia is happy to have you home as well.
