Coming home

Goodness it's been a long day.

I've been going to bed really late - or early - depending on how you look at it. i've been crawling into bed sometime between 1 and 4 am the past three or four weeks. I've been sleeping until 10 most of those mornings. So I've been totally out of whack.

My flight left Jacksonville at 6:20am which meant that I had to get up at 4am so I could leave at 4:50am so I could arrive at the airport by 5:20am to catch my flight.

I tried going to bed at 11:30pm last night but finally gave up and read a book on the couch for a few hours. It was probably 2:15am before I finally fell asleep.

To say I'm a bit groggy today is an understatement!

But.... I got to Michigan. My Mother and Zora were at the airport to greet me -- actually inside the airport, so that was fun! It's rare now to get picked up anywhere but curbside. Then I spent the afternoon visiting at my sisters house and saw Stella. Then my mom and I went grocery shopping for things for dinner - invited all the girls over (Alison and her crew plus Hillary) and we had a lovely evening chatting and laughing and chasing the little ones around the house.

It's 9:41 right now and I can hardly keep my eyes open.

I hope you have a great night, I'll be up at the crack of dawn I'm sure!

Welcome back to Michigan. It sounds as though you will have wonderful times visiting with your family and friends. And catching up on your sleep.

All good wishes.
