Things I won't miss...

I haven't blogged much this week, and I probably won't next week either because the ever fabulous, fun, and fancy (I needed another f) Amber Elyse will be here with meeeeeeeeee!!
I am so excited to see her and go on adventures and take a billion pictures. 

Anyway, I thought I'd do another post about things I won't miss about Grenada just so I'll remember in a few months that life here wasn't all a fairytale vacation as I sometimes portray it because my love for this place often outshines the bad. 

  1. Milk - I just got home from the grocery store so milk is a frustrating matter.  I don't like boxed milk.  I always say "it's not so bad" and make excuses for why it's ok, but it's not.  It's gross. I like fresh cold milk.
  2. Sweat - I never feel clean.  Always a little grimey.
  3. Stolen Camera 
  4. Disgusting men and their horribly inappropriate comments.  In America I could and would have you arrested.
  5. Not being able to go out by myself at night.  Seriously?  I am a grown independent woman.   If I want to walk down the street at 9pm I should be able to and I'm not.  And it's frustrating. 
  6. It getting dark at 6pm every single day the entire year round.  Life is so much better when it stays day light longer.  See number 5 
  7. I miss my Mom and Dad.  I miss them so much.  I very rarely feel homesick, but when I actually think about it I miss my family so much it's crazy.  It is very sad to be apart from the people you love for an extended period of time... I am missing out on so much of their lives.  I can't wait to be home and just enjoy their company and weirdness :)
  8. I miss my nieces and my nephew.  All 10 of them. 
  9. I miss bowling.  Isn't that stupid?  I probably haven't been bowling in 3 years, but I miss it just because I'm not able to bowl in Grenada. 
  10. Ants. Mosquitoes. Giant flying moths.  I got hit in the face the other day by a moth.  A HUGE moth.  Probably 4 inches long.  It flew directly into my face at the pool and I screamed bloody murder. 
  11. High heels.  I am pathetic and shallow and miss my shoes. I will never wear another flip flop again as long as I live.  {ok not really.}
  12. Jeans - I really love to wear jeans.

    Ok this list turned into what I want in America... back to things I won't miss in Grenada.
  13. Gas stove.  I hate my oven with a passion.
  14. Being in charge of things.  I love the things I am doing in Grenada but I have learned that I don't really want to go into management or anything of the sort.  I don't like being in charge.  Lee is ready for a break too.  People are mean.
  15. Grapes. Strawberries. I miss cheap(er) produce. 
  16. Pop in a bottle.  The only bottled pop in Grenada is Coke, Sprite, and Fanta.  I want a bottle of Dr. Pepper or Mt Dew. I want to be able to put a lid on it. 
  17. My church.  I love CSA and our community here.  But I miss going to church with old people and I need to get home to my old people before they all die... seriously. :( 
Canada in 35 days and America in 45.

P.s. Don't hold me to this.  Don't judge me tomorrow when I am crying and kicking about going home.  I do love Grenada.

Kelsey -

I started reading your blog when I found it through Newlywed Bliss. I live in Guatemala and I can identify with a lot of your "won't miss" points - and I agree, it is so easy to fairytale the places where we are not.

Here in Guatemala I sometimes fairytale the States and have to remember the good and bad.
