Home is where the heart is

You know that the Pullman bug has bitten when you go home for the weekend and miss it. Its a Saturday night but as my family believes 10 pm is late, I am chilling here with not a lot to do besides listen to my friend T-swizzle and write enlightening words for the world to enjoy.

I helped my brother move today; he's all grown up! What a study, now all he needs is a nice lady friend to whip him into shape. We played tennis and made plans for Christmas break including playing racquetball eeeerrrrryy day! :) I also wheeled and dealed with him to give me a ride to and from Pullman so I have a car over thanksgiving break; what a relief.

As usual I was exasperated but delighted and thankful for my mom and all her shenanigans. Every moment with her is a surprise and an adventure. I'm glad she puts up with all of us making fun of her :)

This isn't a very exciting blog. Life is surprisingly very good right now. At the moment I am content with the indefinence (not a real word?) of my future, and I'm doing my best to enjoy life as it is now. Coming home always reminds me just how incredibly blessed I am to have the family I do. Last year, right after getting out of a relationship the night before, my dad came and gave me a big hug and said "its alright missy, we'll always be here for you; you can't break up with us."

Over the past few years I've learned how incredibly true his statement was. I love my friends, but let's be honest, they come and go. Most of the relationships in our lives seem to be transitory, and that's okay. My family are the only people (other than my hubby someday hopefully) that I can count on to be there no matter what, for the rest of my life. Even if I'm hurting from my own stupid choices, they'll still be around to pick me up. Even if I hurt someone else, they'll still forgive me.

I'm glad the family I got stuck with is loopy, quirky, and a little dysfunctional :) Life would be boring without them, and I wouldn't want anyone else to have my back (after all, we do have the best back sides around) <3

  2. GAH! Sergey and the other boys were messing around on my computer and left a silly comment, so I deleted it, hehe. But I might as well tell you, I enjoy your blog! It's a great way to keep up with you.

  3. <3 Glad you like it! I'm trying to be diligent and actually write a couple times a week. That way I'll be in the habit when I go to China!!
