Back to the Grind

Well, I am on week 2 of being back home (well, almost 3) and I am finding it a very slow process getting back to the city life.

While I was at camp I was isolated from the world and what was going on. I missed out on a whole bunch of celebrity gossip....even things happening at church. I kind of missed it while I was up at camp. Not so much any more. It is kind of nice not being tempted by magazines or movies in the theatres. I get to do what I want to do without distractions of the media. Although I have to say that it is weird not knowing what movies are in the theatres and try and follow people as they are talking about them.

I enjoyed my time at camp, but I did miss out on major city things. Like engagement announcements and baby announcements, I did miss seeing friends on a weekly or bi-weekly much happens in the summer.

Now my goal/plan is to try and re-invest in the lives of the people I missed while at camp. I want to get back in to weekly date nights with some friends, have people over for dessert and games, or whatever the occasion may call for.

Last night I was hanging out with a friend and just spending time with her (as we walked, signed up for yoga and sipped our Starbucks) reminded me that I had missed so much.

Hopefully soon home will feel like home again :)
