Jetlagged and lovin' it

On the flight home last night [that was delayed nearly an hour] we had "Miracle" as the inflight movie. I groaned when I realized that it was a movie about hockey. I take back that groan. It was a great flick. Kurt Russell was amazing! The kids who played the actual USA Olympic Hockey Team were all great. I'd definitely recommend this movie to anyone who has a love for the sport of hockey. the patriotism was a little over the top at times but concidering the political climate at the time, appropriate.

My cat took all of 0.00002 seconds to fall in love with me again after my being away for 10 days. She's being cuddly and purry and adorable.

The trip home to suprise my mother on her birthday was great/long/tiring/relaxing/frustrating/entertaining/regrettable/fantastic/too long/too short all at once.
Ate too much. Didn't move my ass off a deck chair for days. Sun burned and freckled. Marvelled at my sister's patience with a three and five year old. Got annoyed with my aging mother for all the stuff that annoyed me when I was a teen (some things NEVER change) Found a new appreciation for the brother-in-law. This wasn't bad as vacations go.

Glad to be home.

Not glad to have to work tomorrow when it technically was an approved vacation day. Looking forward to the week-end to do laundry, be a slug, get groceries, tidy, start focusing on the Miami To Do List.
