Back Home

I hate the first day back from vacation. Although I was glad to sleep in my own bed last night, I feel melancholy and lazy today. There’s laundry to be done, groceries to be bought, a five mile tempo run to be done.

I’m still in bed, though. I managed to get up to refill the hummingbird feeder and brush my teeth.

It always feels like an unpleasant chemistry change in my brain, like reality has been altered somehow. I don’t really know why. I used to experience it when leaving my grandparents’ houses as a youngster, a kind of mourning maybe.

At any rate, I’d like to shake it off, which will require me to jump back into the usual crap whether I feel like it or not.

  1. I always need a little vacation after my vacation, time to catch up with my everyday life. Welcome home! Thanks for sharing your fabulous vacation!

  2. It’s called Jet lag. I used to think that was a myth until I flew to Germany and back one time. I did a lot of shift work and thought I was immune. But when I worked odd shifts the sun came up in the morning and went down at night. Your clock is off and the sun is coming up hours earlier than when you are expecting it.

  3. It’s kinda hot and humid to be doin’ much outdoor kinda stuff-like running, unless you wanna go ~4AM.
    Thanks so much for sharing your trip-it looked and sounded wonderful. And sonny-boy?He’s just warmin’ up for next month when he moves into a dorm, is at the very bottom of the college social pecking order (a freshman GUY??!!) and so he’s practicing throwing shit out his dorm window with his new “buds” aka, room mates. Just a very few short weeks and then, another mile-stone and “trip.”
    (Betcha, you’re gonna shed a few tears in the car after you drop him off…unless you drop-kick HIM in the meantime!<Of course I'm kidding about the last part! 😉
