Our countdown chain is getting very short, and we’ll be arriving in the US in less than one week! It’s been two and a half years since we’ve been home, and needless to say we’re pretty excited. More than anything, we’re looking forward to being reunited with family and friends. That’s a given. Aside from that, there are many other things to look forward to. Here are my top 5:
1. Real indoor plumbing. I can’t wait to take a bath, wash dishes inside the house and have a real sink in the bathroom for my kids to wash their hands. It will be fun introducing our kids to conveniences like dishwashers and garbage disposals.2. Food. We love the food here, but definitely miss foods like cheese, avocados, dark chocolate, steak, hamburgers, etc.. I could go on and on.3. Shopping. I can’t wait to walk the aisles of Trader Joes and Target. I’d be more than happy if those were the only two stores I ever got to shop in.4. Driving/riding in a car. I’m not sure how the girls will feel about car seats, but it’s going to be wonderful to have our family inside a safe, comfortable vehicle.5. The beach! There’s just nothing like the beach for fun and relaxation.6. Parks and the library. (yes, I know I said top 5) I can’t wait to see my girls’ reactions to the aisles of books we can choose from, or the slides and jungle gyms to play on.Ryan’s top 3 are: food, the beach, and watching the world cup.
What do you miss when you’re away from home?
