And the weekend flies by

I traveled to downtown Seattle, got my hair cut, had brunch with my son, and picked up a few things for dinner.

Now I’m home, washing my bedding and keeping the Jack Russell company.

It’s not hot in Seattle today, but it’s humid.

Still, it’s not a bad weather day at all.

I”ve finally conquered the jet lag that has plagued me for weeks!

This is such good news, because I can feel my energy returning at last.

And, my daughter-in-law and grandchildren will be back in Seattle in…let’s see…in 15 days!


Life is good now, folks, it’s really good.

May your life be as good as mine is now.

Stopping to sip the peppermint tea

I always give my all at work, but I really pushed myself this week.

Jet lag disappeared by Thursday, and I finally felt caught up on my rest.

Joy stopped by to visit me today when I realized that I have two whole days off before I take off for the east coast and my conference.

I’m getting lots of rest this weekend and keeping myself well hydrated, because I’m going to be spending 5.5 hours in a airplane on Monday.


Tonight I brewed a pot of peppermint tea, listened to music, and just sat around doing nothing.

I can feel my body start to relax, the kinks in my neck and back are gone, and I’m calm and refreshed.

So, expect more from me tomorrow after I get my lazy arse out of bed.


Vacation, jet lag, and another trip

Life is amazing sometimes.

Always, I guess.

Yesterday I got home from my first real vacation in years.

And next week I will be spending two days in Washington, D.C. for a conference. My employer asked me to attend and be part of an expert panel.


I will be putting in some extra work time this week, since I will be gone for four days next week.

My blogging will be sporadic this week, because I need to put in some extra hours on the job.

But that’s just fine, because I’m so excited to be part of a very special conference.

On my vacation, I flew from the west coast to the Midwest–two time zones, and I’m still really tired tonight.

Next week, I will be flying from the west coast to the east coast on Monday, then flying back on Wednesday! And I’m taking Thursday off to recuperate.

Anyhoo, here’s a good article from The Mayo Clinic.

It’s about jet lag.

It’s now 7:37 pm, and it’s time for me to crash.
