Remember me? One month ago we left Japan and headed back to Michigan. In a flurry of bags and then sweat and an unexpected overnight in Chicago and voile, we are here.
Since then it’s been non-stop jet lag recovery, unpacking, reacquainting, more unpacking, home renovations, more unpacking, some lounging, working, and just trying to enjoy a chaotic daily existence. It shouldn’t be hard because LIFE IS GOOD but sometimes it just is, you know?
The other thing is, and I hesitate to even mention it because like…what is the point, but the weather. Has been tough. The snow melted (mostly) then piled up again and then melted some more and is hanging on in some corners. But I’m from the north of the North so I get it. It’s fine. But just some SUN would be nice. Some sun. A little sun.
So when some sun showed it’s face, we got out. To a beach where we walk a lot. To a familiar place. Because weather and unpacking and jet lag be DAMNED, we are home. Home. It’s so good to be home.
That being said I need caffeine. So much. All the time. Have you ever been up at 3am Googling ‘4 month sleep regression’ mostly just to get confirmation that other people feel your pain and live to tell the tale? No? Then I don’t want to hear it.
