It’s technically Thanksgiving here but it sure doesn’t feel like it… I think this may be the most homesick I’ve felt since our move. I’ve spent the last 31 Thanksgiving with my family, that’s right I have never missed one! Even after Matt and I got married we would go to both our families on Turkey Day. If I were home right now I would be helping my mom in the kitchen, decorating the table and drinking a pumpkin spice latte. This is also the first time in the 7 years that Matt and I have been together that I won’t be spending Thanksgiving with my love. He is on a business trip to Sydney. I think not having him around is amplifying my homesickness by about 100%.
Now it’s not as bad as I’m making it out to be. Tonight I’m attending a Thanksgiving dinner with friends from Matt’s work (sans Matt so we will see how that goes). I’m bringing my friend/former Microsoft colleague Keith who is currently living in India & is visiting Singapore this week. I’ll be making my mom’s AMAZING stuffing so as long as I don’t screw it up I will have a little taste of home during my first Singapore Thanksgiving. We have another Thanksgiving gathering on Saturday so Matt will at least get one Thanksgiving dinner.
To everyone back home, we miss you like crazy and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
