i can't sleep...

well as many of you know we went back to America for thanksgiving with our families. it was a great time of decompression and refreshment. you really have no idea of some of the stresses that you live under until you are out from under them. we're back in country now and adjusting back to the middle eastern time zone. it is really messing with me.

we got in about midnight a few days ago and we got the boys in bed around 1:30 or so and we went to bed at 2:30. they have some stinkin' sweet shutters in our country where you can lower them and the interlocking slats block out any and all light from the outside... it can seriously be pitch black in the bedroom at high noon. it's wonderful. the phone woke us up and when yvonne saw the clock in the family room, she thought it was broken because the time was exactly the same as when we went to bed. my cell phone was still set to eastern standard time so i called my buddy here and said hey and asked him what time it was. he told me it was 2:30 in the afternoon... the clock wasn't broken, it was just 12 hours later exactly.

the night after that though we didn't get to bed until 5am and woke up at 9:30. last night we got to bed at 3am and woke up at 11:30 wishing we had set an alarm to help us adjust to the time difference. so tonight we went to bed at 2am and set an alarm for 9am. it is now 3:10am and i just watched an episode of 24 because i was wide awake.

jet lag is seriously lame.

  1. Jet Lag Stinks! I'm all about taking a Benedryl before bed to help adjust to jet-lag :) haha!
    That's kinda ironic that you were watching a show like 24 when you're up at all hours :)

    You guys ROCK!
