Homesick

02 July 2012

The last few weeks I've been guilty of carrying around an irritable mood - a bad attitude that's been an impediment to my day-to-day tasks. It wasn't until I sat down tonight and looked at my calendar that I realized the root of it all.

It wasn't the workload, it wasn't stress, it wasn't my spouse, it wasn't even Grenada...

It was homesickness.

Exactly one year ago today I was on a plane, cruising at 600mph to my Minnesota destination, anxious to race into my father's driveway and throw my arms around him.

Plans are still in a rough draft, but I'm hoping to make a swing through the Heartland in late July to recharge on some Minnesota Nice and reconnect with the other (and often neglected) half of my life.

These are some nearly-forgotten, year-old photos of my family's 4th of July BBQ.

Ahh yes, that was a nice time.
Yes we are a bit neglected but as for me I understand that is just a part of our long distance relationship. I miss you (and that lovely wife of yours) but accept that part of our relationship. You don't mean to neglect nor do I - it's just all that land and sea between us. I love you just the same :-D
