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!
