    I "slept in" till 8 am (noon Paris time) and spent the morning unpacking and sorting and uploading my photos to my computer.
    In the afternoon my energy level slowly died. A lot of time was spent on the couch.
    Right now we are watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower
    My fingers are still swollen from the flight...

        Last night I was in bed by 9:45!

        I was awake at 6 and laid there till 8 before getting up. (I'm still on Paris time)
        I did some paperwork. Boring.

        We cleared a space in my office and moved a twin bed in, preparing for Daughter's ACL surgery on Wednesday. My office is on the main floor, next to the bathroom, She'll be there for a few days, until she can handle stairs again.

        Slow day. I start out with energy in the morning, and by late afternoon I'm dragging.
        I should create my Home Instruction lesson for tomorrow morning.
        I should try to organize my photos

        I think I'll have another bite of my sea salt dark chocolate bar...

        Foods
        Chai
        1/2 a frittata: eggs, cheese, bacon, onion, green pepper (my Farmer made it)
        MCT oil shot
        small salad: cauliflower, blue, bree, bacon, carrot, cranberry, mango, mushroom salad with one of my mini olive oil & basalmic vinaigrettes from France
        red wine, pistachios, brazil nuts
        roast chicken, cauliflower, carrots, brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, olives, shaved parmesan cheese, frozen cherries and whipping cream, small piece of my sea salt & dark chocolate bar

        • Welcome home .

          Impressive shopping haul. Much more than I brought back when I was there. Next time, I'll aim to match you! We're aiming for Italy next year.

          You haven't spoken yet of the food...I'm waiting...

          • And here I thought I didn't buy very much...

            OK, food post will be next. I did take a few food photos.




            btw, my Dragon is back...

              • Monday
                Bed last night at 11. Wide awake this morning at 5:45. Couldn't sleep. Up at 6:30.
                FOR NO REASON! (let's not forget that I'm NOT a morning person)
                I made a Chai, cut one of the cat's nails and then sat at the table with some paperwork.
                A couple more Chai's before 8
                MCT oil shot at 9

                10 am: MAJOR DRAGON STARVATION ATTACK!
                I ate some chocolate (wtf? in the morning??)
                I made a 2 egg scramble with mushrooms, cheese and bacon
                I ate a cream cloud
                I ate the rest of the sea salt dark chocolate bar
                I had a "hot chocolate" (whipping cream, hot water, cocao, dark chocolate chips, cacao nibs, a maple syrup)
                11:45: I finally finished
                Then I felt blah...gee, I wonder why???

                I photocopied the 30+ medical receipts from Surfer Son's near drowning and called the insurance company for more info.
                I sorted, cropped and re-sized some food photos from the Europe trip. I haven't uploaded them yet.

                3:45: Daughter had her phone pre-admit interview.
                4 pm: I gave Daughter the acceptance letter for the University she really wanted to go to. She cried. It was SO sweet
                4:30: Play practice
                6: Play production meeting

                A bowl of home made chicken veggie soup. A cream cloud, a slice of dried mango. A hot chocolate/Bengal Spice tea.
                Band was cancelled, icy, rainy, yucky weather.

                9:45. I'm tired and going to bed.
                How long will it take to switch my body's clock back??

                • Surfer Son was asking about the neurologist apt. today. We still haven't heard anything.

                  He said that he's still having short term memory problems.

                  I'm no Dr., but what he described sounds more like executive function issues.
                  He says when someone asks him a question he has to think before he can answer.
                  He also will ask a question and then re ask it a few minutes later.

                  I think I'll try to contact the Dr we saw when he came home, to see what's happening.
                  If I have no luck tomorrow, I'll try again Wednesday.
                  I took him to the same hospital that Daughter's going to have her surgery at tomorrow.

                      What she said. A visit with the neurologist is definitely in order.

                      As for adjusting to time zone changes, the standard is that the body takes 24 hours per time zone change to fully adapt. So if it was a 6 hour time change to home, it may take 6 days to feel totally sorted out. Sad, but true.

                      And regarding your Dragon, I'm guessing you had a few sweet indulgences while in Europe, I mean, who the hell wouldn't? That, plus the fatigue and throwing in the stresses of dealing again with insurance paperwork and how Surfer Son is doing makes perfect sense for a well timed Dragon attack. Tomorrow is another day. You have slayed the Dragon before, this is apparently a new, baby dragon. You are stronger .

                              While we were waiting at the hospital today, I went down to emerg to find out why we hadn't heard from the neurologist yet. The receptionist did some digging and found out that Surfer Son's apt is JULY 19th! (While we are going to be in Scotland) I think July is TOO long! Ii think I'll have to call and see if I can get it moved up. I know he's not a serious/acute case, BUT July?

                              • Tuesday

                                I went to bed around 10, up at 8!! There may be hope yet!
                                Home Instruction English in the morning and then a quick stop at the school to pick up materials for the next course (Ancient Civilization) We're going to overlap and do two courses at once.

                                Lunch:


                                I don't remember what I did in the afternoon. Probably wasted time instead of cleaning/marking/preparing for Wed.
                                I has some banana/macadamia nut butter muffins with walnuts.

                                After school I took Daughter into London for a "last chance" trip before her surgery. She bought 6 DVD's and I bought The Hobbit and David Bowie's new CD. Then we made a stop at $tarbucks before we watched OZ the Great and Powerful.

                                ~~~

                                I'm tired. It was a long day at the hospital today. Daughter's ACL surgery went well. We have to go back at 9 tomorrow am to have the dressing changed. G'nite.
