I'm going home in July :)
Home is far far FAR away from where I live now, and even though I haven't lived there in 2 years, and probably won't live there again for many more, if ever at all, it is still home. I think it will always be for me. With all it's sky-rocketing crime, idiot politicians who call themselves leaders, and crazy inflation among other issues, I still love it there and miss it terribly.
Even though I am over-the-moon to be going home, I can't help but feel some trepidation about the visit.
What I can't wait for:
SUN SUN SUN! And not having to wear more than 1 layer of clothing. Summer here in Estonia seems to have come and gone a few weeks ago. Bleh.
Going Down the Islands with my 2nd family. Hi Y'all!! I miss you guys! It's cool that I call y'all my second family right? That's what you all are to me anyway. I am soooo looking forward to seeing you guys and the lime!
FOOOOOOD!! One of the things that ALL trinis miss when they leave home. Roti, doubles, a good pelau, bake and shark, mango chow, curry duck, coconut water, Aunty Fatima's corn soup... drool drool drool. I think I will be coming back to Tallinn a dress size or 2 larger. Tough luck.
My Girlfriends. It will be nice to have people other than hubby and baby to talk to. Not that I don't like talking to them... I'm all about ''goo goo ga ga'' during the day and ''baby ima want you'' at night (kidding, kidding), but there is nothing that can really replace your girls. I miss them more than they probably realize, especially the mommy-ones. Now that I've joined them there, I really miss having that support that only other moms can give a girl. It will also be cool to be able to talk as fast as I want, in English, and not having to deal with the confused looks from others when everything gets lost in translation... if it was ever found to begin with.
The Family. I can't wait for them to meet the Angel :) I am dying to see my dad play with her like he played with me. And I know my mom is counting down the days to being able to snuggle with her Pinky. I think they are looking forward to seeing her more than seeing me! I'm sorry my brother won't be there though. And it will be great to have a couple extra pairs of hands so that I can cop a five now and then... if the Angel approves of course.
Tomorrow: What I CAN wait for.
