A trip home.

For a while there I was going through a bit of a rough patch. You know…the kind of rough patch where you aren’t really depressed because life is good and you have no actual legit reason to be sad….but you are still strangely melancholy? It’s no fun. Living in a foreign country was starting to wear me down, jobless housewifery was getting really old, and creative juices just weren’t flowing. But, I discovered, it was nothing a little Las Vegas couldn’t cure!
(No…gambling IS NOT the answer to life’s problems, but seeing your family and best friends again is :) )
Some of the highlights from the 3 weeks at home:
  • Just hanging out and chilling with my family again.
  • Reuniting with Julie after her 18 month mission in Uruguay for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
  • Finally getting the trio (Me, Julie, Jessica) back together after WAY too long.
  • Hosting a Harry Potter party for the midnight premier of Deathly Hallows Part II.
  • Taking the lil bro up to Utah to go on a LDS Church History Trip (oh the memories of when I went on the same trip in 2005 :) )
  • Officially meeting my brother-in-law, Brian, for the first time and enjoying time with the in-laws again.
  • Going crazy with the Utah gang when they came down to hang out in Vegas.
  • EATING MEXICAN FOOD AGAIN!! And also lots of other delicious things.
  • Finalizing all the paperwork for bringing the parrot back to Norway. (Ok…not really a highlight. More of a really stressful experience. More on that in a future post)
  • Wearing shorts and not even packing a sweatshirt.
Lesson learned: No matter how much of an adventure you are having, sometimes you really just need to go back to your roots and reset and recharge and that’s OK (<– a bit of Motherly wisdom right there)
So now life is back to its proper order and the future is once again bright.
Thanks Las Vegas :)
