Back to the daily grind
Back to the US and every day life. The first week back is always hard, partially because of jetlag and also just to get used to being at work and back in a regular routine again. I was obviously happy to see Mike and the cats but other than that it always sucks coming back from a trip. Oh well, what can you do?
I flew back on Monday. Had a crazy early flight but all worked out ok, connected in Frankfurt ok and made it back to JFK with all my luggage without any incidents. Now it's Friday and this week just seems to be dragging like crazy. Doesn't help that I woke up with a sore throat yesterday and been kind of fighting with that since. I hope it doesn't turn into a full blown cold. Fingers crossed.
Other than that, not too much new. The rest of my stay in Austria was nice. Met up with some friends in Vienna and also locally around my parent's house. My mom was able to come home for a night around Easter (Saturday/Sunday) so that was nice. I think she enjoyed being home, even if it was just for a little while. We went for a short walk with our neighbor friend as the weather was pretty nice that day. Also sat outside in the garden for a bit drinking coffee afterwards.
In other happy news we booked a short 2-night stay/getaway on the Jersey Shore in Spring Lake, NJ. Going Sunday, May 11 to Tuesday, May 13. The bed & breakfast/inn we are staying at has a great midweek special where all their rooms are half price so that's pretty cool. If you click here you can see the room we booked. We also used some of the money my aunt was so nice to give me when I was in Austria so that will help. :)
Mail Update: Letters went out on Tuesday to: Charles/TN, Jessica/DE, Celia/MA, Lotte/Denmark. A letter also went out on Wednesday to: Katie/Germany. Received a letter/owe a reply to: Tiffany/OK.
