Since yesterday was my brother's birthday, I've been hearing about everything back home a lot more. I'm kinda sad that I'm away at school and missing so much. Austin turning sixteen is a big day. Good news is that Jan Term ends tomorrow and then I go on break for about a week. But I'm not going home. So the next time I'll be home to see my family and my puppies is Spring Break at the end of March.... if all goes as planned. I'm not homesick exactly. I just want to curl up on the couch with my babies and do nothing for a few days and eat good food.
