Ugh. Feelings can be so frustrating. I sometimes wish I could switch to robot mode. Just "function" and chug along and not question anything.
But that wouldn't be living, would it?
First off, I like living where we live. Minus 5 months of snow. 5 months is a big part of the year btw, so it does get kind of long. I didn't grow up with long winters, and although I truly enjoy all the seasons of the year, and would not exactly want to live where there's summer all year long, these winters get to me. I am not dying to hit the slopes or skating rink. I prefer taking walks without slipping on ice and freezing my nose off.
But, I can live with it. It's OK, life goes on.
I love how close everything is here. Within 10-15 minutes I can get to most places.
People are very friendly, in the stores, at the schools and at the various Dr's offices I've been to.
Life is at a slower pace in general.
I like all those things.
There's enough shopping, and if I need to cross over to the US, it's a quick drive and hardly ever any long lines at customs. I can easily tank up the car, do some shopping and run errands and be back in Canada in just over an hour.
We have lots of great friends and the kids like their school etc.
We hope to buy or build a house and are looking in to different options. My husband likes his job and the people he works with and for.
Yup. That's all really good and dandy!
So why do I get homesick for Windsor?
I find myself daydreaming of living there again. It's hard.
It would not "make sense" for us to move back there, although we would be totally fine living there too, but we'd give up a lot of conveniences if we did.
Well, this is just a vent. I need to get it off my chest. I guess it's good to be open minded in life, knowing that we are able to live in many areas and be happy. And over all I AM happy here. I am. I'm just homesick for home....
Fortunately we are heading down there soon, so hopefully that'll give me my "fix" and I'll be good to go for a while!!
Anyway. Time will tell what's meant to be, but today I will be homesick for home.
