Things we miss(ed)

Life and work have been a little crazy since our return. I don’t have time for anything too reflective so I’ll give you a couple of lists…

Things we miss about Chile:

  • Making new friends
  • Marcelo (and his jokes)
  • Meals that last several hours
  • Not being in a hurry to do anything
  • Fresh corvina (sea bass)
  • Fresh fruit juice (especially raspberry)

    Us enjoying wonderful fresh-made juice!

  • Fresh bread
  • Yummy olives
  • No work stress
  • Summer
  • Spanish
  • Beautiful desert
  • Tasty mangos
  • Warm days with cool breezes
  • Feeling alive

 Things we missed about the U.S. while we were there:

  • The desert that will soon be our home.

    Puffs Plus (or any kind of facial tissue)

  • Soft toilet paper
  • Free refills on drinks
  • Being able to rinse our toothbrushes under the faucet
  • The winter wonderland of snow that managed to bury Atlanta while we were gone
  • Peanut butter
  • Fresh-brewed coffee
  • English

I’m sure if we’d been gone for longer than two weeks, both lists would be significantly longer and would include names of the people (and pets) that we love. : )

    Allow for the possibility that both lists might’ve grown … shorter

    There were and are things from each place that you DO … NOTICE missing … but after a while it just becomes something that you know you’ll enjoy the next time you have a chance to … it’s not something that interferes in your daily routine … (not that they would anyway) …

    Y’all sound like you are SO ready to BE THERE.

    You’re so right, Kenny. Something being missing or being available eventually becomes part of the new “normal.” Like right now, expensive tasteless fruit is normal for us, but I’m still craving a mango alegre today! 🙂
