Hello strangers. I am back from my overseas trip and – as always – am incredibly emotionally jetlagged. The general feeling of “blah, what am I doing here?” has yet to completely fade away and this always translates into a rather sluggish re-entry into my routine and daily life here in CA. I know from past experience that this will get better, but the first few days…? Tough shit.
I did have the best time though, and I am happy to report that I almost checked everything off my Germany bucket list. Sometimes, I just run out of time, but it worked out well this time, despite the fact that this was a rather short overseas trip for me (I usually try to go for at least two weeks what with the long flight and all.)
I didn’t make it to the downtown market with my Mom on Saturday morning (bummer!), but I got to attend one of my nephew’s soccer football matches instead, which was a special treat. I’ll take it.
I’ve been trying to catch up on you guys’ blogs over the last few days, but it’s been a bit overwhelming, to be honest. My Feedly reader had 1000+ unread blog posts upon my return and I had to make the tough decision to skip anything older than 2 weeks. I hope you forgive me. I usually hate doing that (because what if I miss something really important?), but for my own sanity, I had to be brave this time.
I hope May has been treating you well so far.
I’ll be back with some recaps and regular posting pretty soon!
