Write about someone you miss.
Every day I get a little better with how much I miss my family and friends back home. There was a moment a month ago, after my monthly phone call with the Coven, I was so sad and depressed because of how much I missed them. That was the first time I have ever felt physical pain because of an emotion.
I’ve talked about my friends and missing them at LENGTH and I don’t need to rehash it. I will say I miss mine and my husband’s family a LOT. Even though they were still 2 hours away from us in Cleveland, it was still nice to be able to just see them on weekend trips whenever we had time. Now it’s a very expensive flight back home and rental cars and boarding dogs. It’s gotten more complicated. Plus, we’re going to start trying for kids next spring and not having that familial support is going to be rough.
I especially miss Columbus on Ohio State football game days. The atmosphere, the energy, the electrifying environment where everyone is poised for another season of awesomeness. I miss tailgating with my friends decked out in scarlet and gray. I miss binge drinking at 6am before a noon game. Thank God, we’re going to the Ohio State-Michigan game in November. My FOMO is at an all-time high lately.
