Well, a lot has happened since I last posted. Alex went into the hospital. I put in double overtime. Trying to do everything possible. We moved down to the Gold Coast last week, suburb called Maudsland. Still bigger than my hometown, ha ha. We live in the mountains though, reception sucks, the satellite too… even more like home.
We’ve been to the beach so much and even went to DreamWorld. That was so much fun. Kinda like a mini version of Disney World and 6 Flags combined. My favorite ride would have to be the Tower of Terror II. Freaked me out cuz it tricked us on our direction. Also loved the Wipeout. That’ll get your lunch churning, even if you have an iron stomach, lol. The boys loved Wiggles Bay. I so got to cuddle my very own koala… got a pic too!! They so soft and cute, and not heavy at all. I didn’t want to let Misty go. The trainer said her name was Misty, she’s 6 yrs old and a mother of 2. I also got a pic with a kangaroo, but he mostly ignored me cuz he was eating, ha ha. Poor Gus got soaked on a river rapids ride, and Ewan is the dare devil. Ewan rode the same roller coaster 4 times. Not bad for a 4 yr old 🙂 I’ll post pics of that when I get home.
I’m really gonna miss it here. The twins are like the little brothers I never had. It was hard not to love them. They drive me crazy most days, but what kid doesn’t love doing that? I’m so glad Alicia and Alex didn’t try to play the part of “parent” towards me like the family I had in Germany. They became more of the favorite aunt and uncle you can tell anything to and they’ll understand. The only thing I’ll regret when I leave here is not doing the Sydney Bridge Climb. Though with my extreme fear of heights, not sure being 134m (439.63ft) above Sydney Harbor would have been the best thing. I’d have either gotten over my fear or had the ultimate panic attack, lol.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost time for me to go home. It’s been nearly 9 months since I left Texas. I know that doesn’t sound like a long time, but I’ve never been away from family for this long. I had originally planned to stay away longer, but I never had a good enough reason to come home until now. I’ll be home in 4 days and leaving for New York in less than a month. I can’t wait.
I’ve learned so much since I’ve left home, it’s like I lived another life. I once thought that if I were to come home early that I might regret it, but I can honestly say, I don’t believe I ever will. Traveling is so much fun, but not worth if it you don’t have someone to share it with. Are you gonna let me drag you everywhere, Chris? I hope so 😉
Well bed time here as it is now 12:02am Wednesday morning and I have work soon. I might post more eventually, but there will mostly likely be at least one more posting before I leave this beautiful country. I might even just continue on our life in NY, if you still wanna read… we’ll see 😉 Good night all 🙂
