Early to Rise

This morning we woke up at 5:30am, well actually the baby. Mable soon rose at about 6am and was ready to jump start her day. Apparently, I (the night owl) have given birth to two morning persons. Pity for them. LOL! 
Since returning home I have not adjusted to the time change. My family lives in Houston so we had to acclimate to the 7 hour difference and after almost one full week I am finally starting to feel like myself again. 
After Mable left for school, I decided to pack Olivia up and take a nice long walk in the area. It is cold but luckily not to slippery so getting around is easy. Anytime I start to feel "weird" I like to take walks. It's the only thing that helps me deal with winter and the darkness. Keeping it moving is the only way for me to stay in front of my feelings. I miss my family so much but I have a great life here in #Sweden. The only way that I get to experience the two together is by taking a long walk and think about those people I have just left behind. I walk and think of them and after a while everything is ok. 

Any other #expats out there? What do you do when you start missing your people? 
Try to stay warm!
