Home sweet home
I’m back in the U.S. I got home late Thursday night. The long flight from Abu Dhabi to Chicago was just over 14 hours. I spent the time watching five movies—Water for Elephants, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Limitless, Something Borrowed, and Green Lantern. I couldn’t sleep much, so the movies passed the time. I had a whole row to myself, which made the trip more comfortable.
I felt good yesterday until about 5 p.m. I took naps on and off until 10 p.m. I was up until 1 a.m., then slept until 5 a.m. Today, Saturday, I feel sad and out of sorts. The trip abroad was such a good experience that I wasn’t ready for it to end.
On a side note, the weather at home is great. It’s fall and I’m relieved to be out of the 100 degree temperatures. It was raining the night I got home and I was never happier to see water. What a beautiful sight—rain and clouds. Two things I hadn’t seen in a month.
