We’re home! I’m trying to make myself stay awake a little while longer, because even though it is only two hours’ difference, the return trip has wiped me out. I’m looking forward to a long night’s rest in my own bed.
The house was a wreck when I got home, so I’m glad that I decided to take tomorrow off as a jet lag day and not return to work until Wednesday. Between catch-up laundry, housekeeping, meal planning for the rest of the week (& hopefully a nap at some point), I’ll have a full day at home tomorrow. (I tried to lower my expectations of what the house would look like, based on past experience with the other parental unit in charge for just a couple of days, so at least it wasn’t a terrible disappointment to find that my low expectations were met after being away for a week and a half while he stayed at the house with the kids.)
Thanks for the prayers & encouragement while No. 1 & I were in Brazil! I’ll try to post pictures soon.
