NFB: I am so excited
My dad is booking a flight for my daughter and I to come visit for a few days in August to beautiful Monterey, California (my hometown!). I can hardly wait! My high school 10 year reunion is that weekend and I really didn't want to miss it, so I talked with my father (who has been wanting us both down there) and this is the best time to go. I am so happy! I haven't been home since July 2005. I could have gone home last summer, but I decided against it because of my schooling (which I did end up regretting).
I can't wait to see the OCEAN again. I can't wait to see my mom, sister, dad, my Nana, my family...it's been so long. My sister is flying up to visit us in the next two weeks here, but this will be great to be able to see her and my mom twice this year.
I had to shorten the trip from a week and a half to 4-5 days total due to the fact that we have coinciding doctor appointments and my daughter's soccer season begins in August. I know my schedule will be jam-packed, but I can't wait. The weekend is what I'm hoping will work out somehow- my auntie wants to have a party so I can see all my uncles and aunts, my mom, my Nana and my cousins on Saturday day, I have my reunion that night, then Sunday I have a family picnic thing with my former classmates. I'm hoping to get a chance to see my Grandma as well (dad's side). This will also be the first time I get to meet my father's girlfriend/fiancee and her daughter (who I have been in touch with mostly via email but sometimes via phone as well). I'm a bit nervous, but excited.
California dreamin' here!
