The things I did not realize …

I did not realize how hard it would be to be away from home when family is sick. You cannot go visit someone in the hospital when you live half a world away. I thought I was prepared for such things but turns out it was really hard to hear bad news and not be able to do anything about it.

I did not realize how much I would miss hearing a CT accent. Stew Leonard Jr. was being interview the other night and I just about snapped my neck lifting my head to see who was making those familiar tones.

I did not realize that I would need to be this flexible and I am actually rather proud of myself for how flexible I have been considering my control freak nature.

I did not realize how frustrated I could become with things like poor internet quality. I am a spoiled brat that enjoys having my way of connecting with home work well precisely when I want it.

I did not realize how much I would miss not being home for the start of all the fall activities 

I did not realize how much I would miss all of my kids. 

I did not realize how much fun a game of red light green light can be

I did not realize I could laugh that had having my picture taken

I did not realize how much I would need Margie’s words of wisdom or how quickly she would become a sister and friend.
