No Ordinary Life it is.  We'll have our ups, and we'll have our downs.

Since I returned to Alaska last week, it's been really DOWN.

I haven't even updated my FB status since then, because I have nothing good to say.

I was ready to come home to my house and things.  I was ready to get back to a routine.  I'm not so sure about that anymore.  I liked it better living out of a suitcase at my in-laws house.  At least we were close to loved ones.

Though we had a wonderful time home, I think that the break in routine from Alaska living has severely messed with me.  The wind has been taken out of my sails (to put it simply), because I miss Louisiana, my family there, and my husband.  Alaska is, to me, a really lonely place, and I really don't look forward to spending any more time here than I have to.  Some people come here, and LOVE IT.  I'm one of the group that pretty close to hates it.  I need City.  I need people.

And to make matters worse, my desktop computer is not reading my wireless adapter or an ethernet cable, so I have no internet on my big screen.

I'm very slowly easing myself back into the swing of things.  I keep trying to remind myself that I used to find some positive things about living here.  I'll be okay.  I'll get by.  I always do.

This one's gonna take a LOT of time though.

Just repeat to yourself "it's not forever" even though sometimes it may feel like it!! Hang in there!

I'm sorry to hear you're not enjoying Alaska more. It sure doesn't help that Phil has to be gone. Try to hang in there. I know how strong you are and have no doubt that you will get through this chapter in your life without letting it get to ya too much. Like Kelly said above, it's not forever. This is just a blip on the timeline of your life. Much love to you, J-Lo!
