safe and sound

We're home. We flew on three planes for 20 hours. Lexi was practically perfect. I don't know how she could've been any better--carrying her backpack and pulling her suitcase, looking quietly at the safety instructions (on every plane) for ages, sleeping, and quietly occupying herself. Wow. She has always been a good traveler. This time she was AMAZING.

We're both jetlagged. Lexi is REALLY jetlagged. And, since she was awake (but not up--in her bed either just lying down or looking at books) from 11:45 p.m. on last night, I was, too. I gave up at 3:15 a.m. and went back to sleep. I don't think she lasted much longer. We reluctantly crawled out of bed at 10:30 this morning.

Lexi is SO glad to be home. She hasn't said, but I can tell she wishes her new friends were here with us. Or that she could just go outside and play in the back yard.

Now the unpacking begins...

Isn't it too bad none of us can have it all? All the ones we love in the place we love with the details we love. Shoot!

I'm glad to have you back in blogging land.

Glad you had a great trip! Good luck getting over the jetlag... do your best not to let her nap... that helped us.

And happy unpacking!

Happy your return was uneventful. C was recounting his day to me and when I asked him if your departure made him sad, he said, "No. Just sleepy." Which is to say that if he sleeps, he doesn't have to think about how sad he is.

Skype is up.

10:30 isn't bad for your first morning! Closing out light and sound at night really helps. I finally slept through the night once I hung some blankets over the windows.
