January 7th, 2013



Walking into your home when you've been away for a couple of weeks is weird. Everything looks new and familiar at the same time. You notice small stuff. It takes several hours before your mind adjusts, but jet lag doesn't help any. We left a white wonderland for gray and rain, but it feels good to be home, though I already miss my mom and Michigan. How long is long enough?

Things that are different: tap water tastes better in Michigan, but the shower water is better here.

I have so much churning about in my head, but it's 5:30 in the morning and I've been awake for 2 hours and I have to get up in only 1.5 more to work for the first time in weeks and my head needs to get organized so I can do it. I just caught up with emails but can't catch up with LJ since it keeps going down.

I just caught up with my family and America but now I need to catch up with the rest of my life. Eek! 2013 is here, can you believe it? And now I've posted in it, so that's a start. A small one, but a start nonetheless.
