I can’t believe in less than a month we’ll be on our way “home”.
Miami is where we (my husband and I) grew up and ultimately it’s the place we still think of as home. Even though we’ve not lived there since we were married nearly ten years ago.
I’ve got so much to do. I haven’t started packing yet. We just moved into our current residence last September and the very thought of packing up and moving again is daunting-especially around the holidays. I am focusing on the positive, (if you don’t know this about me I am nauseatingly optimistic) I am very happy we managed to get our home sold this summer-so we’re not having to deal with that stress-now that we have real live official orders. Most of our stuff is still in storage so what I will have to pack up will very much like a warm Spring breeze off of the Biscayne Bay instead of like tropical storm force winds.
There is a very small…minute really, problem.
I’m not exactly sure how I feel about living in Miami again.
That’s not to say that I’m not happy my boys and I are able to be in Miami with family and friends while my husband is off on the other side of the world, serving a two year remote tour. It’s just that it’s Miami. It’s a wonderful city in so many ways and in a thousand others it’s not. On the top of my reasons why it’s not the greatest place to live. Miamians tend to be rude. And as I’m sure you know rude people suck. My friends tell me Miami has changed in many ways-unfortunately the people haven’t become politer.
I’m not going to let that get me down though. Nope. Not I. I’m going to be back in Miami-the shopping and food alone are reasons to put a smile on my face. Add in the fact that I will get some time to my self now and again (we’ll be staying with my in-laws which is the equivalent to a live in babysitter and chef). I will get to spend some much needed girl time with my good friends, I’ll get to take my little cousins (who aren’t so little by the way) out and at the top of my list- I will get to spend spend lots and lots and lots of time with my grandmother-which definitely puts big smile on my face and is way better than all of the awesome shopping…and food!
