I made it home Friday night around 8:00. My flight out of Chicago was delayed about 3 hours but we got out. Stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's on the way, which was great! Got home, talked with the folks some, did some unpacking, but then went to bed. Woke up Saturday around 4, got up, wrapped presents, goofed off until the basketball games at 8:30.
I had so much fun at the games yesterday. I refereed two of them, then watched the next three. I got to talk to so many people, got to watch the boys play (1-1 Jr. High, high school won! Yay, guys!) and just had a really good time. I am so glad I made my flights, because I would have been a very sad, sad camper if I would have missed the game. Coaching that team is the thing I miss the most from the U.S., and so it was great to get to see the games.
D made it home yesterday, too, after having hassles at the Delhi airport because she had a 'Stan visa (she had to get escorted to her seat on the plane by this Indian security woman.)
So, yes, it is 5:30 A.M. here and yes, I have been awake for an hour, and yes, this is day two awake before 5:00 A.M. Ahh, jetlag.
My older sister gets here today, my younger sister has been here for two weeks.
I get to go hang out with the Asteroid Wrangler and his wife after meeting today, and we're supposed to get to play our traditional game of Supreme Commander. Of course, neither of us have played since last summer (unless you've been getting in some practice games) so I expect it to be pretty rusty, but fun.
Alright, well, I'm about wrote out for now. Coming back to the states is always weird, but usually good. It reminds me of how blessed I am wherever I go.
