Home or Homeless?
It's weird because for my first several years in Lubbock, I always knew that Abilene was where home was. Lubbock was just a pit-stop. Then somewhere around my 5th year in Lubbock, the tables turned. I thought that once we moved back to Abilene I would just go right back into my old state of mind. Instead, it seems that I see Abilene as a place from my past... the place where I grew up and hold my fondest childhood memories. Lubbock is home to me as an adult, as an independent person. I can't help but wonder if it would take years to return to the mindset that Abilene is "home".
So I miss Lubbock. A lot. And when I lived in Lubbock, I missed Abilene a lot. I must be bad at moving.
Either way, tomorrow I get to go back to Lubbock for a little day trip with my mom!! To shop and eat at all of those glorious places that I took for granted when I lived there. Can't wait!!
