getting our bearings

If I had my act together, I would have wished you all a merry Christmas a few weeks ago–or even covered up the delay with a “Happy New Year!” Oh well, life isn’t punctual and picture perfect. At least mine isn’t. Maybe you are awesome enough to have a timely and perfectly styled life. Instead can I say “hello” and thanks for stopping by? (Special greetings to Rikke who admits to being a faithful reader!)

In the rush of the holidays, we escaped New England for a So. Cal Christmas. We had a few firsts this trip. The kids tried bitter melon (my idea) and voluntarily ate fish eyes (not my idea). We rode the “big” rides at Disneyland together. We took one of the kids to a Chinese herbal doctor. (The jury is still out on this one, so far so good.) We also did some of our usual activities. We spent time with different iterations of family, visited old long-time friends, ate at our favorite places and walked the beach.

The trip was fun but we are glad to be home. It sounds ungrateful (I don’t mean to be, the trip was great) but vacations are tiring and we really could use some rest. I enjoy sleeping in my own bed. Unfortunately, jet lag keeps slapping us in the face. It’s been a little over 24 hours and we are trying to get our bearings. The 60 degree drop from CA was a little tough. When our plane touched down it was 7 degrees outside. Brrr. Our house was so cold inside of the fridge felt warm. But it’s ok. This is home and we’re ready to get back to what God has for us here–if only I could keep my eyes open.

    Awww! It was great to see you guys even for a brief moment. Hoping we can catch up more in May when I’m out your way. And yes, vacations are tiring!

    Hi Karen!

    It is 2 weeks from your post, and I just read it. Checking in to see if you guys have overcome jetlag and have gotten your bearings, at least moreso than when you first touched down?

    It’s been good to catch up again, watching an “interesting” movie and enjoying Chick-fil-a. I am looking forward to Friday too.

    I don’t think I’m only speaking for myself when I say that you were sorely missed while you guys were away! Though, glad to hear that you had a good time. I truly enjoyed experiencing Splash Mountain vicariously through your online photos. 😉

    love, emily
