the slow return to normal

I managed to sleep a bit later today, all of 4:00 in the morning. Of course both girls are up with me as their body clocks aren't adjusting quickly either.

My dryer died while we were gone to Europe. So yesterday I washed all the laundry, loaded it into the van and headed off to the laundromat. I haven't been in one of those since college. The place is a bit rundown but clean. I managed to get six loads dried and folded in 90 minutes. Lowe's is delivering a new dryer today.....at some point....I hope.

I'm off to the bookstore today as well to work my regular shift. Anxious to see how the construction of the White House Garden exhibit is going.

The hubby printed off some huge pictures of our trip. They are placemat sized. He hasn't sent me any of the photo files yet, so I still don't have anything to upload. However, once he does I will go back and insert them into the blog posts I wrote while in Europe.

My brain hurts today...I think I need more coffee. Jet lag day two.....

I actually wrote a short story about someone looking through the glass into a laundromat. Was an exercise in mental work too as I haven't been to one of those in a LONG time. Hope you feel better soon. If it is any consolation.. I have a nose cold :(
