This is the post I wrote while I was in the Madrid airport, but I ran out of free WiFi time
Well today’s the day, I’m on my way back to the states for the next few months. Luckily, this time I don’t have an ungodly horrible layover like my last Madrid encounter. Twelve hour in an airport in rough. My layover this time is only 4 hours. Besides having to get up at 4am to finish getting ready and going to the airport, this morning went pretty smoothly.
I did my absolute best not to cry and failed miserably. I was crying when we were pulling away from the house, I cried when we were saying goodbye in the airport, I cried once I got through security, and I cried once I was actually in the air because it must have once and for all hit me that I was leaving. It sucks leaving Spain, but mostly in sucks leaving my husband, Tom. We’ve started our life here and now I’ve got to up and leave. It was kind of weird because usually I’m the one watching him leave.
I’m not going to lie and say I’m not excited to go home, because I am. I was up half the night dreaming of all the delicious places I plan on eating within the next few weeks! Haha. I’m also excited to see my friends and family, but it would all be a lot more exciting if my husband could come too. He told me he was jealous of all the stuff I was going to get to eat. You really start to miss the convenience of things when you don’t have them around. I’m sure the next few months will fly by because I definitely plan on keeping myself busy running around. Tom starts his next round of classes while I’m away, so hopefully that will keep him busy too.
It worked out nicely that the time periods I can be with him fall into the holiday season. I can’t wait to get back and start decorating for Christmas and putting up our very first tree together. There are a lot of things to look forward to coming up and I know November will be here before I know it.
Well I guess I’m going to go find my boarding gate and prep for the almost 9 hour flight back across the Atlantic Ocean. See ya soon America!
I’ve been back in America for a week now and I’ve finally adjusted to the time difference. The first few days I was home I was waking up at dawn and getting sleepy at like 9pm. That pattern certainly didn’t last long with running around seeing everyone. I have also been out to eat more than I care to admit this week and had my fair fill of American food. Luckily, I’ve still been doing my PiYo, so all my bad eating has been kept at bay.
Now to get the rest of my clothes unpacked…that may be a few more days. Haha.
