Coming home...

Well, I'm getting to make a quick trip home...

It will be a busy one with packing and moving out of the apartment that SO and I moved into oh so briefly 11 or so months ago and putting our things into storage.  It's a real mixed bag of feelings - we were only there for about 4.5 months in the end and we've paid all this rent for nothing, but it was our first place together and it's a really lovely one...

Living away from home - as I've mentioned in previous posts brings mixed blessings, the opportunity to experience a different culture and country and people - not just from a tourists point of view - but from a living it, breathing it, working it, sleeping it 'local' kind of view...  and then there's the whole missing home and family, lifestyle, regular haunts, and as a wise friend said recently just your ease of being disappears...

I'm beside myself excited to be able to be coming home to see some people and have the opportunity to sort out some of the things that we want to have with us before I come back over.  I'm also so sad not to be bringing SO with me, sad that we'll be apart for a time (even if only for a few weeks - it's the longest we'll have been apart since we've been back together), sad for him that he doesn't get to make the run home - doesn't get to catch up with people, doesn't get to see our first apartment together one last time...

So, with my excitement right up there - I head off with a slightly heavy heart on Wednesday morning to get through some heavy, hard things - with some help, hugs and support from my peeps on the home front...  Before heading back to Stockholm for this life that has somehow chosen us for the next 12 to 15 to ? months.  Wish me luck!!
