I haven’t been back home in North Carolina since August 2015. Now, I only have one week left in Honduras before I head back there for about three months. It will be my first winter there since 2012, so I think I’m going to be in for a cold treat.
I’m looking forward to seeing my family and my friends. Some of my friends I haven’t seen in years because they have moved away and many of them are now married with children! However, this year we are planning to do some type of reunion where we can all get together and hang out! I’m really looking forward to that!
I will also go work in order to save some money before coming back to Honduras. It takes some adjusting to because I’m not use to working long hours like I will there. Plus I have to get use to being on my feet all night long. I’m thankful that my boss there always lets me come home and work some when I’m in town.
Last but not least, I can’t wait to indulge myself in some good old fashion American cooking! I tend to spend too much money on food. This year I’ll try not to splurge as much. (I said I’ll try).
