Vacation Blues...

I have been away from my kids and hubby for 8 days now, and it has been the longest I've been away. I miss them terribly, but I'm feeling pretty maudlin about it all. I will be leaving my best friend (sister-in-law), my brother and my two nieces here in Texas tomorrow morning, and I will miss them terribly too. This usually happens to me at the end of a lovely vacation.  I've loved my time away, but I miss my family, so I'm usually stuck in this emotional limbo of feeling neither excited or depressed. It isn't as if I'm feeling nothing. I'm feeling both equally. It is a little exhausting, stressful, and exciting-depressing.

So tomorrow in the morning I will bid adieu to my beloved family in Texas, and run into the (hopefully) open arms of my children and hubby. It has been a wonderful vacation. I'm happy-sad to see it end.

You have loving family and friends that draw you in different directions. What exquisite pleasure and guilt you experience.

You are a lucky lady.

Be glad.

The trip back home was quick, painless, and perfectly uneventful. Don, you summed up exactly how I feel, and it is a great reminder to know how blessed I am. ATBD - yup, right back at you.

That's the hardest--being torn in two by people you love! It's a good problem to have but not easy on the heart!
