Back to the daily grind
Ok I am a little behind on my posting but I guess that's just what happens with traveling, getting over the jetlag and back into the normal every day routine. Well oh well. Today I've already been back for a week and a day. Time does really fly sometimes. The flight back was relatively uneventful when you don't count the fact that I was delayed for 2 hours. Kind of annoying as I got up at 4.30am to get ready and catch the 6am train into Vienna so I'd be at the airport nice and early. Could have slept for an additional 2 hours. Oh well. I made the best of it and had some good food at the airport. Also had schnitzel on the plane. Austrian Airlines lets you pre-order and pay for special meals and one of them is a schnitzel dish with potato salad and a yummy chocolate mousse. Worth every penny. (it's 15 EUR so really not horrible)
Anyway, fighting jetlag was a pain but pretty much standard. I never like it but it's nothing new. Just have to fight through it and eventually your body adjusts back. Work has been busy but not too terrible all things considered. All my coverage people did a really great job and all my files were in pretty good shape when I got back. It still takes time getting caught up on everything though, since you're missing a certain time span and need to get caught up on what happened in those files. Oh well, mostly there now. Just dealing with the normal craziness which is luckily starting to wind down a little bit as we are heading into the less busy season now.
Tomorrow we're heading into the city to see Paramore and Best Coast at Radio City Music Hall so that should definitely be fun. Looking forward to that. This past weekend we didn't do too much. Went to the movies both days. Saturday we saw "Kingsman The Golden Circle" and Sunday "Battle of the Sexes". Two wildly different movies. Enjoyed both but of course very different. Then Sunday we took advantage of the nice weather and sat outside for a late lunch at J. Lawrence (a new place that opened up not that long ago) Definitely will need to go back and try a few more things on their menu. Was nice to enjoy the fall day, being able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. Who knows how many more nice days will be in our future before the real cold hits. Not looking forward to that at all.
Well that's all the news here from me for now I suppose. Better get ready for work and get motivated to face another day. Will have some more tea to help me with that I think. :)
Letter/Mail Update: All caught up with my mail at the moment :)
