Anyone homesick?

I'm feeling homesick today. We visit home this January so it's weird that it's hitting me this hard now.

Today I miss my home, family, friends, everything being familiar...driving, roads, shopping, neighborhoods... I long for that familiar sense.

  • Hi Laura

    Yea I get those moments, I've been living away from the states for a LONG time now, so I don't really miss the place so much anymore - but I sure do miss my family. I'm missing them a lot now that the holidays are coming near

  • I go through phases, although I have been living abroad for many years now. I also get sad around the holidays if I am not able to travel home to be with my family. Like AmericanInOz, I miss my family and not the States so much . . . although I do missing shopping.

    Hang in there - January will be here before you know it!

  • Thanks, ladies.
  • I think December is a tough month to be away from your family and traditions, but hang in there. You'll be visiting soon!
  • I am. My parents are coming in January when I'm due and DH family won't come to see us even though I am on bed rest and can't go to them or their other son. They chose to spend it with DH brother and his kids. Very disappointing

  • Thanks, everyone. It's nice to know I'm not alone. I heard "I'll be home for Xmas" today in the mall and cried :(.

    @icoelho I hope you feel better. People can be very disappointing. My dad and his wife said OZ is too far away to visit. What country are you in?
