Got home, need to catch up

October 14, 2012

It has been hectic getting back into life at home. Between work, jet lag, and a wonderful birthday celebration given for me last night, I have been just maintaining. I took 700 pictures and 4 hours of video on my trip and will post some observations. I got home on a Saturday night after flying for 14 hours, 9 spent with a 13 month old two seats away. But I had earphones and played a game called Jewels on my tablet which helped as long as he wasn’t crawling around in the aisle playing with my feet!

I went back to work on Monday morning. Got to the parking lot at 6:15 am and just sat in my car drinking coffee. Tried to figure out if there was any way I could retire and not go in that building. It has been five years since I traveled overseas and this trip reminded me that there is a lot of world I want to see and experience. This merits a new approach in my life.

    • Barby, you may want to send something to dad pretty soon. Lori told me the doctor told them the cancer is now in his bones. He is quite depressed and not talking. Tomorrow they go to the oncologist and the city of hope next week. They told him he needs to make peace with things. Lori said he is not going down without a fight, and the word hospice will never be mentioned. I have a flight next week, she said she would call me tomorrow.
