Too Many Emotions for One Day
I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter how long I am home for, it is never enough. This year I was much luckier than last year and I was able to spend almost a full three weeks at home for my Christmas holidays; however, it’s still so hard to leave my family.
I think it gets harder each time actually?
My flight was at 5:30 AM this morning, so I am running on very little sleep which amplifies my emotions, but after I get my things unpacked and back into some sort of routine I will be fine (a good night’s sleep will also help, too!)
It’s always hard to say goodbye to my best friends, but I am extremely lucky since they make it a priority of theirs to visit me almost monthly (I think my Dad is coming here in February!)
My flights went well. I had to fly from Regina to Toronto and then from Toronto to London. On the way from Regina to Toronto I was able to catch a few z’s, but I spent the majority of the flight watching Footloose. Such a good movie!
Despite having an early morning flight, I made sure I fuelled my body as per usual. I had breakfast on the way to the airport and packed snacks for on the plane.
When I was in Toronto I picked up a pita from Extreme Pita for my lunch. I also found some cool foodie finds while wandering around and I couldn’t help myself, so I have some new products to try!
It’s amazing how finding new eats can put such a huge smile on my face on such a sad sort of day
(You know you’re a foodie when…)
The flight from Toronto to London is super quick. Like under 30 minutes or something crazy like that? I actually met a new friend on the flight! He goes to Western and seems really sweet. We both
like love sushi, so he took my phone number and we’re planning on going out for sushi sometime soon!
So seven hours later and I am back in London, my home. It feels great to be back, but sad at the same time if that makes any sense?
I was so excited when the cab driver pulled up to my apartment and my excitement grew even more as I opened the door to my suite; however, I have had some tears already. My Mom already had to call me and give me a phone hug and kiss.
I know I’ll be OK, I love it here. It’s just different than what I have been experiencing for the past three weeks (family time).
Currently, I am unpacking the THREE suitcases and one backpack I managed to bring back with me.
Unpacking = mess.
One suitcase of mine was entirely filled with glass bowls, etc.
I was so happy to see that everything made it in one piece
(Do you like my new tea pot? It’s from DAVIDsTEA obviously )
Seeing as how my fridge is bare, except for nut butters, I am planning on going grocery shopping soon. I think I will go to Costco for my meats (chicken breast, ground turkey, fish, etc.) and then Remark for produce (I have been missing Remark so much!)
I am sure it will be an early night to bed for me tonight, but I am thinking I will post again before then because, well, I love you all so much and what else do I have to do?
Classes resume tomorrow, but I have every Monday off this term, so I am a free bird until Tuesday (yay!) which means I have all day tomorrow to get ready and prepare for my new classes!
Have you seen the new Footloose movie? If so, what did you think?
Have you tried any of my new food purchases before?
Do you like talking to your seat “neighbours” while flying or do you keep to yourself?
Have a wonderful Sunday!
