Home Again, Home Again

We arrived safely in Brazil after appoximately 17 hours and 15 minutes of travel. Despite some serious freaking out beforehand, which has earned me a lovely cold sore, it was proably the easiest trip to or from Brazil that I've had (with the obvious exception of the time Guapo got upgraded on the Rio-Houston leg and gave it to me). As the long flight was not full we got spread out a bit which was nice and the kids were GREAT! Way less annoying that the three talking ladies that sat behind us and kept their lights on half the night for no apparent reason (grrrr).

Jet lag's great. I was up with various wide-eyed kids until 3:30 am last night and then peeled myself out of bed at 12:30 this afternoon. It's 9:30 here now and no one appears to be tired-I think every one's going to be drugged tonight to help speed up the readjustment process.

And the heat-oh my goodness. It was 98 in the shade when we arrived yesterday in our sweatpants and long-sleeved t-shirts. Today I took the kids swimming to try to cool down and the water must have been close to 90 degrees. No relief in sight.

Other than being really hot, and tired or wide awake and the wrong times, everything's normal. Our bedroom now has a HUGE leak right above our TV. See? Totally normal.

It's good to be back.

I am glad you made it back safe, despite the gabbing old ladies.
I hope you get that leak fixed, what a great way to be welcomed home.

I can't give you any sympathy for that warm weather...I'd love a good day at the pool right now! Glad the flight went smoothly.

Welcome back, Gabriela!! What a fantastic break for you. Had to chuckle at the leak in your bedroom...not that it's funny, but well, you know... I'll send good vibes towards Happy Sleeping Better Tonight!
