Challenge: Day 12

Day 12: 
What do you miss?
(a person, thing, place, time in your life)

There are a lot actually!
I miss my family the most!  My sisters, and my parents, and my brother, not to mention my nephews and nieces!  I was so excited when I went to visit in April, I feel like I'm finaly able to have adult like relationships with my oldest niece and nephew, it's amazing to see how they have matured, and turned into adults.  Plus I still get to just be Aunt Di to the little ones.
It's extremely hard to be so far away from my parents, I'm luckier than most because I have gotten to see them at least a few times a year since I moved to Arizona, but even prior to that we were all seperated.  See, my family has an adventurous streak.  That's the only thing I can think of to explain why we, more so than most families, have ended up all over the country!  I think it began with a story that my parents used to tell us about how when they were just married they saw a John Denver special on tv and they moved to Colorado.  From there we ended up in Idaho, and then full circle my parents moved us back to Florida. 
I love to get in the car and just go for a trip!  When I was in college I would have 2 days off work and I would jump in the car and drive 8 hours north to see my parents, or 3 hours south to see my sister.  Just to have to get back in the car to come back the next day.  Do I miss my college years?? Not really, I mean it was fun and all, but I am enjoying the now! 
So what do I do about missing my family??  Well rescently I got to see all of them in one fell swoop!  But I've also been making and sending them cards for the last few months as well.  It's a good outlet for all my creations, and it keeps me in touch with them a little better.  Plus sometimes I will skype with them as well!
Remember that I'm joining in the Blog every day in May challenge that can be found here.
