Homesick

Samantha
I have been really emotional today. Been really missing my family today. They are back home in Illinois and I am out here in Washington, where I only know one person besides my husbands friends. Also today is my husband's father's birthday, but he passed away in 2007, and I don't get to see my husband for another week. How does everyone get through feeling homesick and lonely?? Been having a hard time today...
