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.
