I know this is absolutely unrelated, but I just managed to gather up some money and buy tickets to go home and see my family next January! I’m so excited, I haven’t been there since April and that was after 2 whole years away, and didn’t feel like enough. Also, it isn’t nearly as cold as here, and there is access to good wonderful fresh fruit, unlike miserable Canada… I’m so happy. :c)))
Good for you..I am sure you will have a great time with your family!
