Jet Lag Can Kiss My Bootie!

We're back, I'm pooped, & that's that! The overnight flight went well...Reese slept through the night & Daddy caught some decent zzzzzz's too. I slept for about an hour I think...then I couldn't get comfy because my back was killing me.

We got home Thursday morning about 5:30 and Reese & I crawled into bed. Daddy had promised he was coming to bed too, but he took care of the mail, bills, luggage, etc. first. Poor Daddy...

We managed to sleep until about 11:00 (Daddy got up earlier) and then tried to get to bed around 9:30. Luckily, Reese fell asleep right away & seems to be back to normal today.

Mommy & Daddy, on the other hand, are anything but back to normal! I woke up at 2:30am and saw Hubbs wide awake...he said he's been up for about 3 hours. We talked a little and then he was able to fall asleep, while I was wide awake for about 2 hours. *sigh*

Reese & I woke up at about 8:45 today, Daddy earlier. I was contemplating a hike with our homeschool buddies today, but we would have had to leave at 9:00 and that just didn't happen!

It's now 10:30, we're just eating breakfast & still in our pjs. Daddy has already made his way to the gym...I was not quite so motivated today! I'm giving myself until Sunday to adjust, then I'll head to Yoga Sunday morning.

Speaking of breakfast...I'm so glad Reese's appetite is back! While spending the first 4 days in Hawaii either barfing or crapping, Reese didn't eat much other than saltines, bananas, bagels, & applesauce. He'd have an occasional bologna sandwich or maybe a few french fries but he didn't really have an appetite for anything.

All yesterday, he ate like a horse, and he's now on his 3rd cup of dry cereal (Kashi's Heart to Heart cereal...he loves that stuff!). Along with a bagel & cream cheese. I'm so glad his appetite is back & he's all better. Whenever he gets sick with throw up/pooping issues, I always go back to three years ago when he came down with Rotavirus and was in the hospital for 4 days.

So...we're back. I'm still pooped. And that's that!

I am so glad you are back and safe and had fun! I love traveling, I do not love jet lag! Those Hawaii flights are killer!

Take it easy and give your body time to recover. Everything can wait. Trust me, that laundry will still be there come Monday!
