Mood: tired

I've been in Chicago for about 5 days now. I caught my plane on Monday (August 4) at 11am and arrived the same day at 10:30am. Magic! Time travel! Amazing! Originally I was supposed to have a middle seat off to the side, but I lucked out and was asked if I could trade for an aisle seat in the middle section. Bam. It was a long flight.

This has been a very long week. I've been horribly jetlagged and I'm failing at sleep. Here's an example: I slept last night from 11pm-2:30am. I was awake from 2:30-9am. Then I slept from 9-2:30pm. Ugh. I also had a bout of stomach issues. I'm just not used to American food/grease/portion sizes/seasonings/whatever.

Tomorrow my mother and I will be taking the train to West Virginia, where we'll be visiting my family (aunts and uncles). While I grew up going there every summer, I haven't been there in over 5 years now. I'm looking forward to the clean air, seeing my relatives (and seeing how old they all look), beautiful views, and going hiking. Also: fresh home-grown food. Fresh honey and eggs, tomatoes straight right off the vine, vegetables and berries galore. My mouth is salivating just thinking about it.
