    Homecoming

    Thursday, June 5th, 2008

    I’m flying out to San Jose early Saturday morning. For the past week, maybe two, I’ve been counting down to my departure.¬†

    California, I’ve missed you.

    My dad and I were chatting online earlier today and he said that he and my mom were finishing household chores because they were “preparing for a celebrity who was coming to town.”¬†

    My parents are so cute,” I thought, embarrassed a little that they were working hard to welcome their own daughter to a neat house; as if their house was ever messy in the first place.

    I haven’t visited my family since Thanksgiving. I think it’s the longest interval between visits, despite my too-hopeful promise upon moving to St. Louis that I’d visit my hometown every three to four months. But to make up for the nearly seven-month absence, this stay will be the longest ever since moving out of the house: eight days. Eight days!¬†

    So I’m elated. I love homecomings.
