Yesterday, we woke up at 5:30 a.m. Our flight left Shannon airport at 9:20. Landed in Atlanta about 12:45 local time, and left at 2:15. We arrived home around 3:30 p.m. PDT (the equivalent of 11:30 p.m. in Ireland) By the time we got home, it was after five, so we'd been up around 20 hours.
It was 81 F when we got into the car. Compared to high 50s- mid 60s in Ireland, it felt very warm!
We're all happy to be home. Nacht was very happy to have us back. After we'd unloaded the car, and Katy had gone to drive Sean home, Tod and I went outside to look at the garden. Nacht stood at the window and yowled, because he thought we were leaving him again. He was very anxious all evening, but he seems better today (although he does try to be where he can see at least oe of us).
I collapsed around seven. Tod managed to hang on until after 11. But we were all up (including Katy, who said she fell asleep around 10) by six, and wide awake. The newspaper hadn't even arrived yet!
Today's a fairly quiet day. Getting ourselves over the jet lag, doing laundry, and getting things organized around the house. It's going to be nice to eat at home, after two weeks of restaurant food.
Pictures will be posted soon. Katy and Sean took nearly 700 between them; Tod and I had just over 300.
