thin and eager like this, with something
in it sad and nostalgic and familiar...
Feeling a little nostalgic right now. All our families
are so far away. Spread out all over the world.
Today I am missing having them around.
Arvid's family is in Norway and come February
we will see Michael and Victoria, fingers crossed
that this year we will also see Michelle, Emil, and
our two grand-daughters, Aleah and Vanessa.
We had such a good time this summer with Victoria
and Michael in Chicago. Thinking of it makes me happy
and I smile. It's one of those special memories
that I will always hold close to my heart.
My parents are in North Carolina, not that far,
but at the same time far. My mom was in a cast almost
4 months. She shattered her bones in her left leg.
The road to recovery has been long and at times
painful. Glad to say she has been out of the cast almost
a week now. Hopefully we will see them soon. I sure
miss my parents a lot and can't wait to see them.
Luckily we have seen Nirvana not so long ago in
Puerto Rico. Was nice to be able to spend quality time
with her. She will be back in Florida tomorrow, unfortunately
we will not be seeing her this time. She J, and Kimsy are off
on a little vacation. Portugal and Morocco is there next stop.
hoping she will be able to visit us early 2020. Just saw
Rima and family in California, but I still wish she lived
closer to us. That 3 hour time difference is a killer.
Imagine the 6 hour difference that is Norway.
Nina is here in Tampa, and even so we have not
seen each other much since we returned from Chicago.
Luckily we met in Las Vegas and had a few days there.
Wednesday. Halfway through the week.

Wishing everyone a great day. Tis the season to
be jolly, but sometimes it is also the season
where the heart sometimes feels sad.
Distance not only gives Nostalgia,
but perspective and maybe objectivity...
