Or....more accurately by I Have An Inability To Sleep On A Plane lag....
is that the same thing?
After traveling for that many hours it was a welcome sight fo sure.
My legs were hairy
My hair was stringy
My teeth were funky
My eyes were bloodshot
The makeup I had so carefully applied on Thursday morning had, by Saturday afternoon, found it's way into the deepest crevices of my face
I looked awesome.
After checking into our hotel, meeting our guide Helen we managed to shower a child or two and then staggered outdoors to grab some dinner.
Helen invited us to eat at The Chinese Restaurant(this is not a joke....that's really the name.....which frankly still makes me giggle) with the group that is already here on their 2nd week of their trip.
We made our way to a private room in the back.
Each table had 8 chairs.
At which point Helen says, "Oh look, just enough room for your family. You can sit here, I put other families at next table."
So there we sat..
Falling asleep while sitting up.
Looking like a motley
Not hungry one bit but trying desperately to stay awake for a couple more hours.
As the other families chatted happily with one another and fussed over their adorable new kiddos we sat at the table next to them, silently staring blankly at one another, not even having enough energy or brain capacity to make conversation.
At which point 3 out of our 4 kids put their heads on the table and promptly fell asleep.
Fast forward about 13 hours of blissful sleep later and here we are.
At the hotel
and loving every minute.
I have internet access
I have food in my stomach
and I am one happy lady.
From here on out you should see a blog post coming near you often
cuz I like you
and you leave me nice/funny/witty comments
and that makes me smile
and I like to smile.
My friend Angela should awake later
We'll hook up with Sally next week
And most of all we are about 24 hours away from meeting the two cutest boys in all of China.
Off for today's adventure,
catch ya on the flip side.
