It's times like these when I'd give anything to pack up and head for home. Anything. I'd never watch another episode of Oprah. I'd give up ice cream. Chocolate. These wonderful California "winters". Never take another hot bubble bath. I'd never eat another artichoke. I would vow to never again slather a nice crisp Granny Smith with Adam's peanut butter. Ever.

And that's saying a lot.

I know what you mean ... I miss my little brother, also 8, also lives hundreds of miles away.

But, look on the bright side: when they see you, they get so excited and you become such a novelty while you are visiting that its almost magical! If you lived there full-time you'd miss out on it.
