Home Sweet Home

Home - a place to reside where you feel completely comfortable, with all you need and your friends close by.

That's all I want. I miss home!!! When we first heard that we were going around the world, it was a little exciting. It was too far away to think about the fact that no friends, dolls, stuffed animals or "stuff" would be seen for a year. As we drew closer to leaving, friends started to get email addresses to communicate with us while we were on the road. It made it seem closer. Then finally, here. Everywhere. We move around, so no time to REALLY get settled in. When we accumulate a nice group of animals and dolls, we ship them off. Our stuff is... clothes. And a laptop, two animals each, books, not enough STUFF to... make it feel like home. Now as it is only 46 days until we get home, we find ourselves missing it more than ever. We play on Webkinz here, and we miss our Webkinz. We play with our current group of dolls and animals, and we miss our dolls at home. We play with Seelia, Siena's seal and when she starts getting upset about not seeing her New Zealand fur seal mate Walley, we miss our animals and dolls from the trip. But most of all, we miss our friends. How I long to play with my friends, even if we spend all of our time deciding what to do.

One of the highlights of our trip was going to see Amy and Andrea. We knew that before we left. It gave Siena and I something to look forward to, instead of just crumpling on the couch everyday, moaning of missing home. Now in Buenos Aires, with a perfect feather couch to sink into, that's all we want to do. Amy and Andrea have sadly been left behind and now, we have no motivation except home. It all comes down to that. I MISS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
