Lately I've been feeling a pang of home sickness for WI. I miss my family and friends and wish I was able to visit more often but an 18 hour car ride doesn't make that possible.
I normally don't let myself dwell on being away from home. I love my life here in NC but there are so many things going on at home that I am missing
One of my oldest friends just had her first baby. I keep in close contact with her and made sure to visit her everytime I was home but that's still not enough. It was sad to see on facebook various postings from our group of friends commenting on how they had met her little one and posting pics of their visits. We've experienced a lot together and to miss out on this was hard
I have another friends that's facing a difficult time in her life and various phone calls and emails just don't seem to be enough.
And finally my grandma is taking a turn for the worse. She has congestive heart failure although she is not in heart failure yet. Symptoms are starting to increase to show that she is slowly fading. Her mind is not but her body is. My mom is a nurse and is going to decrease her time at work so she can spend more time with her mom. While nothing can be done yet I still can't help but worry about her. My grandma and I have always been close and I hate being so far away from her.
Anyway sorry to unload on everyone. Just needed to destress by venting.
