My husband is homesick!
On the boat to Namisum
Preparing for family holiday
Attempting to tie cherry stems into knots with our teeth (look at that concentration)
My favourite snack in my favourite restaurant in my favourite chair
Studying Korean in front of work at the 63 building
I know this feeling very well.
Although I try to think positively in life (and on this blog), living in Korea for 5 years certainly was challenging at times. I would cry to Sung Hyun about how difficult it was to be misunderstood and always an outsider -- feeling like I never did belong. Now I know what it feels like to be on the other side. I feel helpless and don't know what to say to him when he is going through these exact emotions. He didn't know what homesickness was until now. He's just got to push through and I know he'll do alright, but it's hard to be on the other side knowing I can't do anything to help him.
Christmas is over and the reality of life here has set in. I too am having a hard time finding my groove. We certainly haven't found 'our' groove. I hope we'll get it soon.
(or I'm going back to Korea!)
