Out of Place

Lately I feel out of place.  Like i'm not in my own element.

Yesterday as I was driving from work to pick the girls up from School/Daycare, I suddenly felt like the roads were so unfamiliar and I didn't know where I was going.  The thing is...I drive this way to and from work e.v.e.r.y day - so they are definitely familiar and I definitely know where I am going.  

This feeling of "I just don't belong here" came over me. 

I especially feel out of my element and out of place when someone whom I have never met before pipes up and says "Where are you from", or my fave 'Which part of America are you from" - No people, I am a Canadian and there IS a difference between the American and Canadian accents!

I wonder if i'll ever feel like this is home and that I belong here?.

Sorry Honey - but you will never feel like Australia is home because it really isn't. "There is no place like home".
