Back in the US of A

E0TzpBkXEAUEiY8Hello from back in Connecticut. :) Got back on Wednesday and today is Sunday and the jetlag is finally starting to ease up. Usually I am not that affected by it especially coming back to the States but I think having been away for 3 weeks just messed with my system. But finally getting back into the normal swing of things and routine. 

Worked on Monday, then had Tuesday off to run some errands, get my Covid pre-departure test, pack and so on. Wednesday was my travel day. Had a 4 hour connection in Dublin which kind of worked out since my first flight from Vienna to Dublin was over 2 hours delayed. There were mechanical issues and problems with the engine and they couldn't tell me if I would even make the connection but it all ended up working out in the end. Landing at JFK was no fun either as there were really strong winds which caused us to bounce all over the sky during landing. But like I said it all worked out ok in the end. Since I was able to pre-clear US customs/immigration in Dublin I didn't have to go through immigration/customs when landing so that helped speed up things for sure. 

Thursday and Friday I worked. Thursday is a bit of a blur between jetlag and some work events (celebrations for a 60th birthday of a coworker as well as a retirement party/ pot luck during lunch and happy hour after work)

The weekend flew by of course as well but I guess isn't that always the way? Saturday we went to the movies and then had lunch at Flipside. Went for a walk when we got home in the late afternoon and then made a yum salmon & vegetable farro dinner and binged some "Bridgerton" season 2. 

Today, Sunday, we met up with our friends Robin & Ashley at Rizzuto's in Westport. And eventually going to start the last season of "Ozark". And well tomorrow is Monday again and a whole new week ahead. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Nina/WA and Kimber/Halifax.
