My flight to the Philippines is in 3 days. Am I excited? Yes... Am I lonely? Yes... How could I have felt these two things at the same time? Well, simple. It's been 2 years since I left my country and family back home. I've missed them. I want to see them again and spend Christmas and New Year with them. However, it tears my heart to leave hubby here alone. The fact that I'm leaving on Friday didn't sink in until last night. He just held me and I cried like a baby. We're going to miss each other so bad. Our only consolation is that the separation is temporary. He'll follow me in December. Just like the old days, we'll chat everyday and talk on the phone every Sunday until we can be together again. Haay! I know it's sad but he was only allowed to take a month off from work so I guess we'll just have to deal with it. I won't be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with him and Dad's kin. I've always spent it with them since I got here. Philippines does not celebrate this occasion so I'll just to have catch up with them next year.
