Might I offer you some tips on how to ease your Heimweh:
Go to your nearest grocery and grab yourself a bottle and some Snickers Ice Cream Bars. I mean, Snickers themselves are ok, but Snickers Ice Cream Bars...heavenly.
Have one of these around. (Husband is good too since he can actually talk to you and hug you up.) Elsie helps with homesickness in a dual fashion. First, that sweet dang face and personality. Second, you see that plastic coke bottle on the floor next to her bear? Yeah, she kicks and chases that thing around the floor making the loudest noise from hell that you can't be homesick...just deaf and annoyed.
Eat well. Not that this reminds me of home because I didn't cook until I moved here, but this dish I make often (and put on rice) cause it's quick and tasty does cheer me up. It ain't no fried chicken steak or bowl of queso, but let's not overdo it, k? We already had two Snickies. (Art had four.)
