Back to reality

Oh my Lord, coming back from Hawaii is so hard.  I'm not just talking about crying on the plane as the little Asian lady smiles and waves aloha from the jetway or leaving behind the sweet pups we took on field trips from the Humane Society but my Lord, the JET LAG!  Basically you're having to adjust back an entire day's worth of hours.  It usually takes us about a week before we're within 2 hours of our previous routine or at least enough that the Mr can make it to work without falling asleep at his desk.

We come back and the phone goes on Do Not Disturb (where it doesn't ring but they can leave voice mails) because without fail people have called with some kind of non-issue or idle chat that has interrupted the one alloted nap time we've scheduled to combat the extreme fatigue we get a few hours after waking up.  So yeah, we're still in a fog and have a few more days of that before we get any sense of normalcy back.  We're technically still on vacation until Wednesday so I'm trying to enjoy that.

Yesterday was our first workout and man it sucks how quickly you lose those rock hard muscles even if you got in some workouts on vacation.  We've got the house stocked up with fruits, veggies and lean meats.  I'm a little bummed I have to go back to full time chef but it's time to get back to it.  We ate like we were just introduced to Western food and had 2 weeks to consume it and to say it made us feel like big piles of dung is an understatement.

So we're back...I'll have updates on some of the cool things we did that made this trip the kind I've dreamed of for so long.  The list is long so you'll have to bear with me for doing the longest vacation recap in history over the next week or so but lots of life changers.  Thanks so much for everyone who followed me on Instagram and commented or liked my pics.  Here are a few in case you missed them...

What did you guys do this weekend?

  1. I enjoyed your pictures. I didn't comment, but I really appreciated you sharing them.

    This weekend was a weekend of not a lot of fun "stuff". I think the high point was little guy's soccer game on Saturday.

  2. I can't wait to hear all about your trip. I'm dreaming of a trip there myself, someday...

  3. Looking forward to hearing how things went! Enjoy your rest!

  4. Can't wait to hear about all the awesome things you did on your trip! I just got back from a mini-trip myself and it's been hard to get back into the swing of things--2 weeks has got to be so much worse!

  5. Welcome back!!!! So glad to hear that your trip was all you could have dreamed of. I'll be watching for the updates as you get your body clock back on normal time. I giggled when you talked about the phone being "turned off". I basically live my life that way. The caller ID comes up on the tv and if I don't recognize the number, I don't answer the phone. If it's during one of my favorite shows and I DO recognize the number, I don't answer. *snort*.

  6. Welcome back!?! I'm not exactly sure that's good... Anyhow, can't wait to hear all about it and live vicariously through you = )

  7. Welcome home. I looked, I read, I dreamed I was sipping something pineappley...can't wait to hear all about it.

  8. Welcome back! Can't wait to hear and see all about it. Haven't followed anything as life here has been lulu for a couple weeks. Sounds like you had a good one!! Yahoooo!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate your time! (Heads up though...disrespectful or spam comments will be deleted.)
