Jet Lag

That person in the mirror looks the same as two weeks ago, but I wouldn't be the least surprised if I turned around and and around again and suddenly she had fine straight hair and green eyes and a flat chest and she was still me.

The thoughts in my head seem familiar, but then they flicker with brief flashes of scenes from the trip. I think I'm playing too many different tracks at the same time.

I sleep at night, mostly, but still there are intervals during the day when I feel zonked, as if I were having a bad reaction to some weird drug.

My friends tell me I look like I had a good time. In a few more days I will agree.

REST. That will cure you.

Nice two pictures below. Hope the little one is all better now.

They say it takes a day for every time zone traveled to feel "back to normal"...and since you went ten and then back 3 (or whatever the math was) - well, you're screwed.

lucy - that ear infection is history. I'm taking your advice. It's now 3PM here, and I'm about to take my doggy for her morning walk.

john - yes, 7 more days to go. But each one gets a little better.
