A (Jet)Lagging Homecoming

I arrived home for the second time in one week on Sunday evening. Husband's best friend and his wife had their first child while I was traveling, and we wanted to see little Adam William before he grew too big. He was a precious, tiny little thing. So far they are lucky: he doesn't cry much, and he's quite the little snuggler with cute puckering lips.

Last Tuesday evening, I arrived home 23 hours after I began my travels in Prague. Everything went smoothly, but I was stuck with a 7.5 hour layover in Munich, so it made for a long day. Husband picked me up from the airport with a sweet little kiss, but I think Drew missed me more because he howled on my lap for a full five minutes when I arrived home. It's been over a week, but still he doesn't like to leave my side.

I want to thank everyone for the thoughtful comments left while I was gone. Even though I didn't respond, they kept my spirits up during my down moments, and made me laugh as well. I'm still attempting to get back into the swing of things, which is why I haven't blogged since my trip, but at the same time I'm trying to wrap my mind around all the ideas and experiences I had while traveling.

I may post a few pictures and stories over the next few weeks as I continue to settle back into normal life, whatever that is. We have a few birthdays coming up (including husband's and mine) and two more trips over the next month, so I'm just hoping to keep up. However, I surpassed the 90% mark today, so I'm well on my way to finishing this draft in April! Hurrah!

Yay! A new post! Welcome back, kiddo. 90% mark?!? That's HUGE! Keep it up, sweetie.

Yvonne said...

Welcome back Angie! It hasn't been the same without you. And brilliant news on surpassing the 90% mark. I'm delighted for you, keep up the great work!

JJ said...

Drew howled? Oh god, how sweet. Glad to have you back.

Lane said...

Glad you made it back safely Angie.
Woo hoo:-)

Annie Wicking and Loman Austen said...

Good luck with your book.. Wow I wish I could give up work and write full-time.

Best wishes

Angie said...

Thanks Kris, I was VERY stoked to hit 90%. Now that other 10%...pfft. ;)

Ah, thanks, Yvonne.

JJ, it was *so* sweet. (I am a sucker like that.) And thank you. :)

Lane, I second that woo hoo. Seems the last 10% should write itself, but somehow that theory is failing. Hmm.

Annie, thanks for visiting and welcome! It's nice to meet more writers blogging (or is that bloggers writing?). I have been blessed to have this opportunity. Let's hope I don't screw it up!
