- I was in school for 18 years and September was my New Year.
- The weather.
- The wonderful mix of hockey, baseball, and football.
- I am faced with fairly major decisions about staying in StL for another year and my career.
- I haven't seen my family in 9+ months.
Rose-coloured glasses about home. And new contracts/obligations in St Louis. A good life with great friends in StL. Small decisions that ultimately add up to The Big Picture. Not a fun combination.
One gets emotional.
