Home and Jet Lagged!

It feels great being back in my house with my stuff around me but I wish I could enjoy it more, because I am Jet Lagged.....BAD! Wow do I feel horrible, I'm exhausted, I'm sick to my stomach and throwing up and just feel completely out of it.

I'm trying to get the bags unpacked, clean the house, do laundry and all that other fun stuff but I'm getting nowhere fast. I'm hoping by tomorrow I'll be well enough to start sharing all my photos and stories with you.

I also checked my bloglines and almost fainted when I saw that I had over 1500 new posts...needless to say, I won't be reading them all, I'll come by and say hi but I doubt I'll be able to fully catch up on everything I've missed the past month.

Anyway, I'm heading back to bed, I'll see you all in the morning. HUGE HUGE hugs to my family back in South Africa, we already miss you all terribly.

Here is one of my FAVORITE photos from the trip to South Africa, this was taken at about 4:30pm at the beach right across from the Blue Marlin Hotel where we stayed. It's just breathtaking.

So glad you guys are home, safe and sound! I bet you're missing it all already :) Take all the time you need to recover, I can't imagine how jet lagged you are and how much laundry is piled up! Never fear, we'll be here when you are caught up and back to normal. We're not going anywhere (which by your bloglines count is obvious, huh?!) :)

Get some rest and get back into a normal "here" routine!

It's always nice to be home, but it does take awhile to get back to normal.

I hope your system gets on the right time zone/climate/continent soon! :)

I'm looking forward to the pictures!

I hope by the time you read this that you are over the jet lag. The photo posted here looks like a painting you'd see hanging in a high-end gallery. Your camera really got a good workout, and South Africa is so scenic...
