The downside of travel

Oh the jet lag.  It sucks!  

And I really seem to be having a hard time of it this time.  Last night the hubby and I were both up at 3 a.m., unable to fall back to sleep.  I rested (kept my eyes shut and dozed on and off), but my mind was awake.  The hubby was just awake.

Fortunately, the kiddos were fast asleep and seem to be doing mostly fine.  The first two nights were hard.  We had to do some major work (read: bribe with ice cream) to keep them up around dinner time.

I'm not sure what they say about which way it is that jet lag is harder (going or coming), but I think that jet lag is harder when we come back.  There's no motivation to stay awake (like being on vacation).  We're just back at work.

Maybe, just maybe...things will get better in two days.  Until then, it's stay vigilant not to sleep when you're tired during the day, which is really all you want to do because you're tired.

Next week, I'll get back to normal, I hope.  More than just one post.  I mean, I think you can forgive me for not posting.  I've flown halfway across the world, I've survived two days back at work, I've put three kiddos back on a normalish schedule....I'm mostly unpacked....blah, blah, blah.

In the meantime, here are some glimpses of our last days of summer vacation.
