Vacation and withdrawal

Tonight we leave for San Antonio on vacation. It's a nice, long, flat drive on I-10. Gabriel is taking a CLE class on entity formation tomorrow, and we are coming along for the ride. We'll relax and have fun at the pool or go to the Market Square while he is in class. We'll probably have dinner in the Riverwalk area tomorrow night. Saturday we are taking the girls to Six Flags Fiesta; it will be part of Paula's birthday gift/celebration. Then we drive home on Sunday and have Monday at home to rest.

I am looking forward to this short vacation. I love San Antonio. But in my heart I miss my island so much. I would love to go back home for a while. It's just out of our financial reach right now. It's been two and a half years since I visited last, and I feel so disconnected it's not even funny.


  1. I have been in PR for almost a year and a half. I recently went to visit my hometown in Connecticut(thanks to Jet Blue vouchers). I was missing the people very much but not the environment that I left behind. All of my former co-workers looked like robots and very unhappy. They said that I had that island, relaxed look. I am glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and experienced living in a different place.
    The thing I miss the most is Target. If Target came to Puerto Rico, I would be complete!

  2. LOL. I love Target. I would definitely miss it if I moved back home.

    I have a good life here and I like it very much. But I miss PR. The people, the food, the ocean. The closest beach here is Galveston, with its brown, murky waters. But there are a lot of things I do not miss. At this time, the good memories is what I focus on.
