there’s no place like home

February 17, 2007

I just got back from a long, long trip. So glad to be home. And I am not just home, I’m home for the next 3 and a half days. Nearly 4 since I don’t have to work until 1355 next Wednesday. This is the first time in over a month I’ve been home for more than 2 days in a row. It makes me le happy.

Things that don’t make me le happy:
– We left for Atlanta 6.5 hours late this morning. Gotta love loading everyone up, getting out on the runway, and then having some maintenance issue. I guess the silver lining was that I didn’t have to go to Witchita after that.
– Getting up at 4am. Especially not when it’s -100 (at least) outside.
– Getting a jury duty notice. Last time I had jury duty I got a speeding ticket on the way there for going 42 in a 40, except it was during school hours.

Things that do make me le happy:
– I’m learning to enjoy running. It actually feels good. I spent about 50 minutes on the treadmill yesterday and ran for at least 30. I’m able to run longer and faster than before and it hasn’t even taken much time. Still have a long way to go but for a running hater, I’m pretty pleased.
– I’ve lost weight. I think between walking miles and miles each day in China, eating lots of veggies and little else, and going to the gym a little it’s beginning to happen. My uniform is fitting better as well.

I need to write about my China trip before I forget it all. It almost feels surreal to think of my mom and Israel still over there and what they’re doing and how different it is from everything here.

I’m so happy to be home.
