You're Tired, I'm tired, Can you imagine how tired they are??
I think the adrenaline of the past few weeks is finally beginning to wane as I am having trouble putting together a coherant thought. Serge and James called around 11 this morning from the Chicago airport. They sounded tired. It might have been the 4 hours of sleep or the sausage biscuits they had for second breakfast. Their plane departed on time at 1 pm EST and should land in Beijing around 3 am. It is possible we might hear from them in the wee hours.
Maggie and I spent the day trying to reassemble the house and catch up on laundry - no small feat after three weeks of neglect. You have to keep a pretty steady pace to out run Julia's efforts in the opposite direction too. Good conversations and a lot of good "girl food".
Serge recorded a book for Julia which she enjoyed a great deal today. Ginny is thoroughly depressed. I think she is hoping if she continues that Golden Retriever thing, one of us will let her sleep with us.
