...for spending the day close to home.
On the tenth day of my vacation, I was struck with the reality that my trip was winding down. It always makes me fill a little hollow and it pulls at my heart. I have to put on my best face, however, and make the the most of it. I have to keep a cheerful attitude, if you will, so that my family won't get sad alongside of me. Usually at this point in my holidays back home, I start to rush around and try and get everything down, see those that I have yet to see. It leaves me a bit frazzled and makes me just want to stick close to home.
I spent the day with my family. My sister came out to visit - we all went shopping, driving around town, and enjoyed a big meal together. Later in the evening, my hard-working friend Dineen picked me up for a late night coffee at Tim Horton's. Ah, I miss that girl - my "sex kitten"! She is one of the friends that totally makes an effort to see me even though she just bought a house and is renovating, even though she has barely a day off in her busy, stressful schedule of being a paramedic.
Yep, my trip was winding down and I was starting to feel a little blue.
