Breaking Heart

Today is day 8 in my international trip to India and Singapore. I am in Singapore and it is Sunday evening. Only a few more days to go, but my heart has already broken. The only thing that will mend it is seeing my precious family. I miss them so much I can't even write about it.

I was in India through Saturday morning and that was the hardest part of the trip. I am in Singapore today through Wednesday and it is very nice here. I spent the morning shopping for Amber's birthday presents and finding some fun things for the kids from Singapore. Good shopping, but certainly not bargain shopping. There are all sorts of designer shops and everything is very expensive. I managed to find a department store with reasonable prices, so I got some fun stuff for the kids.

I've also been looking for a special gift for my parents since they are so much help and have been invaluable to Miles while I've been away. Not to mention invaluable to us all the time!! They are trying to downsize their house, so I'm having a hard time finding something for them. I don't want to contribute any clutter, but I want to get them something from Singapore. I wandered around all afternoon, but didn't find anything that worked for me. I'm not sure I'll have any more time to do any more shopping since we're working Monday and Tuesday and then head home very early Wednesday morning.

I'm thinking that maybe a very thoughtful gift from home will be the best.

Only 3 more days!!!!

I bet you miss them tons, but I am envious of your trip!

Oh, that must be so hard! I've been away from little J. a couple of times just for weekend trips and even that was so hard. :( Hope the next few days go so well (and quickly!).
