I traveled to downtown Seattle, got my hair cut, had brunch with my son, and picked up a few things for dinner.
Now I’m home, washing my bedding and keeping the Jack Russell company.
It’s not hot in Seattle today, but it’s humid.
Still, it’s not a bad weather day at all.
I”ve finally conquered the jet lag that has plagued me for weeks!
This is such good news, because I can feel my energy returning at last.
And, my daughter-in-law and grandchildren will be back in Seattle in…let’s see…in 15 days!
Life is good now, folks, it’s really good.
May your life be as good as mine is now.
I always give my all at work, but I really pushed myself this week.
Jet lag disappeared by Thursday, and I finally felt caught up on my rest.
Joy stopped by to visit me today when I realized that I have two whole days off before I take off for the east coast and my conference.
I’m getting lots of rest this weekend and keeping myself well hydrated, because I’m going to be spending 5.5 hours in a airplane on Monday.
Tonight I brewed a pot of peppermint tea, listened to music, and just sat around doing nothing.
I can feel my body start to relax, the kinks in my neck and back are gone, and I’m calm and refreshed.
So, expect more from me tomorrow after I get my lazy arse out of bed.
Life is amazing sometimes.
Always, I guess.
Yesterday I got home from my first real vacation in years.
And next week I will be spending two days in Washington, D.C. for a conference. My employer asked me to attend and be part of an expert panel.
I will be putting in some extra work time this week, since I will be gone for four days next week.
My blogging will be sporadic this week, because I need to put in some extra hours on the job.
But that’s just fine, because I’m so excited to be part of a very special conference.
On my vacation, I flew from the west coast to the Midwest–two time zones, and I’m still really tired tonight.
Next week, I will be flying from the west coast to the east coast on Monday, then flying back on Wednesday! And I’m taking Thursday off to recuperate.
Anyhoo, here’s a good article from The Mayo Clinic.
It’s about jet lag.
It’s now 7:37 pm, and it’s time for me to crash.
