Things I Miss
I’m starting to miss things about being home. I miss having a variety of food. I miss good Mexican, Indian and Thai food. I miss Detroit. I miss my stove, over and kitchen gadgets. I miss my church. I miss being able to visit my parents’ house and Dave’s parents’ house. Not that we went all that often, it’s just the idea that I can’t go. I want my Dad to make me homemade tacos and enchiladas. I miss being able to go places on my own and just hang out. I miss being with my husband. I miss being able to get up in the morning, bathe, make breakfast and be ready without having to depend on other people to heat water, make tea and go to the shop for bread. I miss having electricity at night. I miss being able to talk to Dave, my parents and other friends on a regular basis. I miss cooking for myself and deciding what I will eat.
