I’m back from Europe!
We got home three days ago, and the jet lag has been bad. I keep waking up in a very sudden and alert way at 5:30am in the morning, and cannot fall back asleep. The upside to the jet lag is that I have had some very productive mornings. Also, according to Sleep Channel, jet lag symptoms not only include insomnia, but irritability and decreased awareness as well. Finally, something I can blame those on.
While I was away, the world carried on without me (imagine that!), and I came back to a few new developments. Since it is 7:30 in the morning and my brain is limited in its capacity to weave paragraphs into a cohesive post, here they are in bullet points.
- Plumbing problems. We arrived home to discover that our shower drain had decided to stop working. When the plumber arrived and examined the issue, he found about five other things wrong with the pipes and shower infrastructure. Fantastic.
- Shifting family. In a few short days, my brother Stuart is moving from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada to attend film school. This has been his dream for a while, and I just know he’s going to love it. While I am excited for him, I will miss having him only a 5-minute drive away. Bye, Stu! I send you with lots of love.
- New artist in the blog world. You may remember my Great Coloring Book Giveaway and Renee Coates, my dear friend who is rocking it in the art realm. She recently began an amazing, innovative blog called 52 Pieces to share her work. Every week she posts a new original 6″ x 6″ painting that can be purchased for a very affordable price. Go check out her current cow series!
