At last, I sit at home in my treasured Lay-Z Boy. My laptop upon my lap and my eye-lids nearly shut. I have been awake since 4:30am in Hong Kong. I once was able to calculate the time difference, but the many hours awake since then have rendered my calculating power to somewhere between a slide rule and a rock. My senses have been degraded and my wit compromised. I am a walking hollow shape of a man. Jet lag has latched its hideous claws into my brain and nothing but haze fills the space between my ears.

We left the Hong Kong Marriott at about 6:00AM yesterday. We got into Seattle at 7:21am and then spent over an hour in immigration and customs. We made it home at about noon. To a welcome that could not be beat. The Grandparents and a couple aunts were on hand to greet us and even provided some much needed tacos! The love and happiness was much needed after so much time travelling in a foreign country. Who knew I would appreciate what we have SOOOO much!?

I am happy to be home, but now I need sleep!
