I once said that I wouldn't go back to England, even to visit, until it was time to move there indefinitely. I didn't think my heart could endure being reminded of everything I was missing and then have to say goodbye to it all over again.
Today I am SO ready to go back whether it be for a day, a week - whatever! It would be worth every penny of the $1,200 it takes to get there. British blood flows through my veins - it wants to return to its ancestral home.
::sigh:: In the meantime, our little life carries on pleasantly enough. Last night we had our long lost friends Pat & Audrey over for dinner. We missssed them. The deal was that I would clean the apt. (it was a bit of a disaster) if Tim cooked dinner (I was feeling uninspired). And of course his culinary skills won out once more with a delicious meal of Turkey Burgers w/ homemade Garlic Mayo, Muenster Cheese and Sauteed Peppers and Onions as well as homemade french fries (amazing!) and sauteed Yellow Squash & Zucchini sprinkled with Parmesan Cheese. So tasty! I count my blessings that I'm married to a man that can cook with the best of em'.
Afterwards we went to Mitchell's for some ice cream and discussed the social politics and hilarities of Facebook. It's evenings like that with good friends and great conversation that give me every reason to love life in Cleveland - even if our ultimate goal is to fly far far away as soon as possible.
