During June, I had been getting homesick. I missed my house, I missed the comfortable lifestyle we have at home, and I was letting it affect my attitude a little. So, I decided to change our flights for one of the trips, and go visit our house. I also decided to fly Elliot in for his day off, so he could have a taste of home, too.
So, instead of heading to meet Elliot in Houston, Blake and I packed up and went back to Durham for the whole trip. We rented a car, got some groceries, and walked back into the house we've been missing since February. Yep, I haven't been back to my house since February. :)
We spent the week enjoying our yard, visiting with friends and former teammates' wives, eating all the delicious food we could, slept in our own beds, and got to play with Elliot in our backyard for a whole day.
It was wonderful! It really helped my outlook, and I came back to St. Pete refreshed and ready to take on the next couple months. It's amazing what a little visit to home can do for your attitude. :)
