Adjusting to the Island has been fairly easy up until this week. I mean I’m sure everyone must think, “Oh my gosh, you live on an island you won’t miss your family,” or “You’ll be on vacation 24/7 it won’t be hard.” Well trust me it is hard especially since Danny has finally been going to work and I have been staying home alone, until like 5pm. Also, we only have one car so it’s not like I can drive to somewhere to distract myself. This is one of the main reasons we started this blog. I wanted something to keep me busy and also, make some friends along the way. Although, moving has taken a little time away from the blog, trust me receiving all of our stuff from the states has been hectic, but even then I can’t help but to miss California and my family.
I am very close to my family, my husband and I started living together when we got to the island since we got married 3 weeks before we came out here, I know crazy! I think that maybe one of the reasons why this could be hard because I haven’t really been more than an hour away from my family, let alone 6,000 miles away. Although Danny is my best friend, obviously, there are times when you just need a nice warm hug from your mother or to have a good beer with your dad. It’s hard not to have them around but at the same time I enjoy the adventures Danny and I have been having alone out here and the closeness being away has brought us.
On top of missing my wonderful family, I really do miss the food. I can’t just drive anywhere to get street tacos here or even authentic Mexican food. There are some ingredients that aren’t here on the island either and I can’t make signature Mexican Dishes, which sucks. There is no In-N-Out either! I’m sure once we start decorating our place it’ll start feeling like home. I really do know that being away will get easier with the following weeks to come but for now I can honestly say, I’m homesick… S.O.S someone send me tacos or In-N-Out, PLEASE!
