I’m Baaaaaaaack . . . I Think

I can’t wait to tell you all about my trip to France last week. Except. I just got back and I have less than 24 hours to recover before I go back to work and confront several hundred adolescents.

And I travel about as well as your basic soufflé.

I will post photos and tell tales and distill wisdom from our brief sojourn, I really will. Just not now. Right now I’m too busy tinkering with my internal clock, which is so far out of whack it’s like something from the old Twilight Zone opening credits.

Meanwhile, I offer you some yummy quotes about travel in general. One reason I love quotes so much is that they are there to bail me out when my brain won’t start. I am particularly fond of this one:

As well as this one:

And I strongly agree with this one:

I hope to be to back in sync with my time zone at home soon. Meanwhile, any advice or comments you have to offer on dealing with vacation re-entry are deeply appreciated!



  1. Welcome home! Sorry to greet you with a discouraging word but I have found no cure for jet lag beyond toughing it out by not giving in to the temptation to cat nap (no danger when surrounded by yowling teenagers) or going to bed too early – you’ll only wake up at 3 a.m . and not fall asleep again till your alarm goes off! This too will pass! Glad you had a great time in France. Can’t wait to hear more.

  2. Man, what a teaser! I was looking for a post about French wine, food, and scenery! I guess I will just have to wait some more. Of course, I understand how changing time zones messes with your internal clock. I just traveled to YOUR time zone this summer, and it threw me off. Of course, I always think traveling west is easier than going east. J’ai hâte de lire ton voyage! (Not sure if that is the correct way to say what I wanted to say, or if I just offered to sell you an elephant!)
