New careers are exciting. Travel is exciting. Heading home to sleep in my own bed is exciting. There is so much coming up in the next four months, I can hardly get my head around it. Maybe tomorrow, I can make a list, work on the calendar, get caught up, or maybe not.
I have done quiet a bit of writing while gone this time, partially due to one night when I could not sleep. I slid past my caffeine deadline and paid the price in the wee hours. I learned that lesson quite some time ago, but evidently, every once in a while I need a refresher course.
The return plane ride was something akin to a small roller-coaster. The pilot did his best to find an altitude that wasn’t as turbulent, but the thunderstorms that caused so much devastating flooding, were wild up in the sky too. No one got sick and we made it back right on time, so can’t complain. The best part of being back, though, is not being in the high humidity blast furnace. It’s hot here, but the lack of humidity makes it much easier to bear, and it cools off at night. I love to sleep with open windows!
My youngest granddaughter has hit the delightful stage of realizing she is making all these cool sounds, including raspberries, and she is good at it. She also began pulling herself up and traversing along the couch, so I think walking won’t be too far off. Its such fun to watch this stage of development. My oldest granddaughter was glad to see me too when I returned. She is getting ready to start 2nd grade. Now how did that happen so fast? I will take her and her school supplies in this week to meet her new teacher. My grandsons now live west of me, rather than east, the oldest one getting registered for his new school, 1st grade. Incredible.
and so it goes…
