...several things while visiting the states:
-Clothes fresh and warm from the dryer, smelling of of a fresh Bounce dryer sheet.
-Using the microwave to warm up any and all of mom's excellent cooking.
-Buffalo Wild Wings, its TV's, tall beverages, general atmosphere, hanging out with friends.
-Chipotle. Enough said.
-Snow, cold, blankets, sweatshirts.
-Christmas lights, sounds, smells.
-Christmas cookies, especially the chocolate cookies with the hershey's kiss in the middle.
-Hanging out with numerous friends at various locations.
-HUGS from my nieces and nephews, and the general wrestling-around-playfulness I love having with them.
-Time spent and football talk with brothers, cousins, etc.
-Going anywhere, at anytime, and having people there who speak English.
-REAL Diet Coke. Not Coca-Cola Light.
-A night at the Turner Hall, hanging out with The Nik, etc.
-Driving my fabulous Rav 4, on the open road, without honking horns and without constant fear of getting 'snaked' & crashed into every second.
-Harry Potter on the big screen, movie theater popcorn and soda to go along with it.
-Visiting my old school and seeing my students from last year, and the amazing teachers who still work there.
-Family. In general. And the hugs and love that comes with them.
Only a couple more days. I'm so excited!! Happy Holidays to everyone, here and in the States!
