Jet Lag: 5 Connie: 1

In World Cup news there was a huge defeat last night: Brazil, the host of the Games and one of the favorites, lost to Germany 1-7.

I feel a little bit like Brazil. I'm losing to jet lag right now.

So far the only night I've slept through was the first one when we arrived home last Thursday. It's now been five nights of interrupted, little, or no sleep.

I woke up at 4:15 this morning (after falling asleep at 1), which on the bright side of things meant I saw the sunrise!

If I'd been thinking clearly I would've thought to get a picture of it. But by the time I thought of the camera it was already 6:30 and fully light outside.

I can testify that the view over to the church in Malenovice was pretty both at 4:30 and at 6:30 AM!

It'd be nice if I could actually be productive at such an early hour, but unfortunately that's not how jet lag least not for me. I'm awake, but I'm tired.

So I read, pray, think and look out the window...all with a glaze over my eyes and mind.

When I uploaded this picture later on in the day, it reminded me how I feel when I'm jet lagging...some of the picture is in focus, most of it is not.

From many years of experience, I know it won't last forever. Eventually the scorecard will tip in my favor.

While I'm not placing any bets on it, I'm still hoping tonight will be the night I get another score!

  1. Oh honey...I'm so sorry that it's been such a rough week of readjusting. I know your theory about amount of days and # of hours in the time difference. But maybe the new thing will be to factor in the # of months gone as tying into the lag thing!

    Love you....let's talk soon!
