Happy, Happy, Home and Hyper!

I hardly know where to begin! I'm just so happy to be home, and I have to lay the blame squarely on the fact that I slept on the plane!

Thirty-nine is the magic number. All of the previous thirty-eight trips across the Atlantic Ocean were 100.00% sleep free. But last night (wow, I actually feel like it was "last night" and not "earlier today") a number of factors came together to give me sleep. Real sleep. Heavily interrupted but a total of at least five hours of it.

So last night I got on a plane, and today I arrived home. It's never felt like that before.

We landed without incident on a cool, calm, sunny day. Or at least a sunny break in the weather. Greeted by blue sky and brightish light. (Well, it is Holland.) Everything has come together to leave me filled with energy! Never mind the freshly ground Starbucks NariƱo Supremo, the cool air, and the always present joy of simply returning home from a trip. I'm hyper. Happy, happy, home and hyper!

Ugh. Usually I like morning cheerfulness, however ....

I never left my house and I am butt dragging tired. This cold is keeping me sleepless (cough, hack, sniffle, blow).

I hope you're resting. Get well soon.

I'm certainly not sick, but the energy is... reducing...

Nice, Amsterdam is pretty...I am glad you are getting some rest and I hope you'll be home for a few weeks without interruption :)

You sounded so wide awake and happy. Sleeping on those long flights seems to have made such a huge difference. Enjoy your long weekend. Hugs...Mom
