I Want to Go Home - Atleast, Today I Do

I want to go home.  Today, I really want to go home.  Home to Miami; home to my granddaughter; home to somewhere  life is somewhere near normal as we know it,  I want to buy my old house back.  I want central air and heat, so if I am cold, I can set the thermostat to heat, and if I am hot, I can set it to cool. 

I am tired of being eaten alive by mosquitos and itching so bad I can't sleep.  I want a real drugstore, not a farmacia where they don't even carry Benadryl, much less cosmetics, lotions, toothe paste, hair color, and anything else I might need.   I don't want to travel three hours to get to Wal-Mart.   I want a cable installer who comes within a reasonable frame of time, not mañana.  We all know when mañana comes.  In our case, in over two months mañana has not yet arrived.

I want to be able to have my computer fixed by someone who doesn't reformat my hard drive to fix a minor problem with a program, then lie about it.  Of course you uninstalled the version of Vista that was on my computer, you ....., the version of Vista you re-installed speaks Spanish, not English, and it is so old I will be dead before I can install all 72 of the updates it is missing.  Of course you uninstalled my Vista, you idiot!  Otherwise, where is all my email, music, genealogy records, etc., etc, etc.?

I know I signed on for all this, and tomorrow, I will feel different, but today, I want to go home!!


  1. Sounds like a good day for chocolate, or wine, or both! Hope you are able to find some peace in the midst of the chaos.

  2. Oh Patty, I would love to encourage you today, but I have a feeling that there isn't any words that would comfort you right now. Tomorrow, yes, most definitely is another day, with lots of encouragement. Hang in there girl!

    My heart goes out to you,

  3. Oh honey! I am so sorry~!!! Life has not been easy for you since you moved!! Go see Jen, maybe she can cheer you up or call her!! Remember we can praise God in the good times and the bad times....if you do that then you've been praising Him alot these last few months!!
    It will get better!!! Hang in the dear lady!!

  4. Nana, When I think about what Jen deals with every day, it makes me ashamed to compalin aobut anything. She is much stronger than I am, or, as my sister tells me, than I think I am.

    Love, it was a day for chocolate AND wine. There wasn't any chocolate and when the wine was opened, it was corked, UGH, so we settled for ice cream.

    Kelly, thanks for your kind words. I will definitely be better today.

    To paraphrase an old cliché, I am praying for patience, because if I pray for strength I will go to jail, and jail in Honduras is not where I ever want to be.

  5. Today begins a new week. I hope yours is blissful. I too had a tough one last week. I experienced my first migraine. Wow, that's painful.

  6. Ozark Mountain Woman, I am so sorry you had to experience a migraine. They are eally nasty. This week will be better for me, but a little sad, too. My aunt died this morning, but you know, it was not all bad. She was 91 years old and had lived a good, productive life. I think she was ready. And I'll bet you she and my mother are already making heaven a lively place tonight.

  7. praying for you today. I am praying that this week brings much joy and less frustration!!
