home again, home again
it was a tiring journey home, with one fascinating evening spent in amsterdam, holland, where we gazed in awe at incredible architecture, peered down charming alleys, walked along otherworldly canals, avoided oncoming bicycles, and opted for pizza and pasta for dinner.
after finally landing in dc's dulles airport on friday afternoon, we came upon terrible traffic for the drive home, and instead of two hours it took four.
but we are home.
i managed a good nine hour stretch of sleep just last night, which will hopefully do the trick of evicting the jet lag. tashi seems to be doing just fine.
i'm a bit nervous about going to work today and facing all that i've got to catch up on. tashi is excited about going to school and seeing all her friends again. on the home front, i've got phone calls to make, appointments to set, bills to pay, seeds to start, a workroom to tidy and projects to undertake. we managed to get groceries and laundry mostly out of the way over the weekend.
before i can blink, tashi's spring break will be here. but this one is being spent at home, with some visitors we hope.
happy week to you all.
