    Do not miss the snow. Plus now, my family is scattered all over the world.

    My family has always been spread out all over creation, so I'm used to that. But I haven't talked to my mom, stepdad, and youngest sister for 2.5 years because of something bad that happened, and I always think about them (especially during holidays) and I wish that things could be different. So in that way I miss being at "home".
    Guess that didn't cheer you up much did it?? LOL, I do really hope you get to do something fun that makes you feel better soon! ((hugs))

    A little. But there are so many travel nurses at my current assignment that a few of us have formed a "group" to go to movies, dinner,local events etc. Then i make a point of working on the holiday itself so i don't miss family so much- there's almost daily contact with email ...

    My family is scattered around too, but yes I wish we were together during the holidays. Thankfully, I have my husband and pets.
