I think that would be terribly hard.

MysteriousLady said...

Must be very hard. You must miss home alot!

...my 2 cents said...

Sounds like you really miss home! I think #13 would be the most difficult for me.

Kimmy said...

Bless your heart! I couldn't imagine being so far from home.
The clothes dryer cracked me up... just today I was walking my dog and noticed someone was hanging their clothes to dry... IN THEIR SHED!!! Can you believe that? A few hours later I walked by and noticed the clothes were down and underwear (of all shapes and sizes) was hanging. Too funny! I wish I could have snapped a picture ;)
Happy T13! My list's up!

Oh jeez, it must be tough not understanding. As for #8... I moved to a small town about 3 years ago, and everything closes up by 9pm. Argh. I despise that. On #9, Nature... Oh, that would be absolutely the hardest for me to handle. I love nature, so.

Here's a hug, if it'll help any. Hope you have a terrific Thursday, too!

I felt the same when we were in Korea...even with the base it just wasn't the same... Who am I kidding the base did nothing to make it anywhere near being the same as the US.
One thing that was good was the video store near us carried US movies with Korean subtitles and they were really cheap. So we could see movies at least and the sales clerks there were really sweet. One time we picked up a movie that had been dubbed and they went and switched it for us. YAY!

Awww.. visit soon? :)

MommyBa said...

I have the same sentiments but only these are things that I miss about my home country, the Philippines :)

Happy Thursday!

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness! I'd miss all that AND more. Sounds like you're doing okay there, all considered.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Shannon said...

I think it's time for a visit back. (And then you'll remember some of the things you hate about the US!)

Happy Blog Day 2006 (http://www.bogday.org)!

Nicole (the great) said...

Come stay with us. You might not miss this place so much.

Measi said...

Isn't it funny how the everyday things that we'd never think about become homesickness thoughts when they're no longer commonplace?

I hope you can get back over here sooner or later!

Jenny Ryan said...

Wow, I'm so impressed that you are living in another country. I don't think I could do that.

Vicky said...

Being a Brit living in the US, I can totally relate to the feeling of 'missing' stuff from home! Interesting list!

Barbara said...

I don't know if I could handle living in another country, and miss everything here in the US, including relatives. As for understanding 100% of the time, it's getting bad here, with so many people coming in - if you don't speak their language. :(

My TT is up.
