We are home safe and sound after quite a long journey home from Frankfurt via Newark and Harrisburg. We are surprised to see everything lush and in full bloom in our beautiful neighborhood. The little things are surprising us. The size of drinks at the airport (that’s a medium? looks like an extra-large to me). Ordering at McDonalds I was shocked at all the choices and had trouble placing my order. They thought I was crazy when I exclaimed with glee at being served my favorite Sugar-Free Vanilla Iced Coffee.
When we arrived home last night I groggily had trouble figuring out how to flush the toilet. I kept looking on the top of the commode. I also found my sheets and pillow to be the most luxurious linens I have ever experienced in my life.
The kids were greeted with welcome signs on the door from friends. They played with neighborhood friends today; Todd and I went on a long run. What a beautiful day. We will rest again tomorrow and head back to school on Tuesday!
