|YVR - waiting for aerobridge to snake out.|
Thursday April 20th: Arrived a little late (but you already knew that). Got home by 11sh, unpacked and cleaned up then had sniffy and licky reunion with Ash who seemed to be pleased that I was back. Went for a walk with him all the while staring into the sun to get rid of the residual melatonin since it was about 3am Friday morning for me. Something like that - who can really tell. We took a nap on the bed as well. I couldn't help it. Place was very dusty, but can't deal with that either. Food is non-existent except for coffee creamer thanks to friends who stocked some for me before I returned. Then had reunion with RE and Spunky - Ash's mentor and main tormentee - in the evening. Dinner at the Eastwood, nachos, before giving into sleep. Surprisingly didn't wake up in the early morning, but I guess that's par for the course. The first day back, I'm always tired out from the travel time, layovers and sitting in a composite material tube with poor air. Good things to note: Seedlings have sprung up, I have flower buds on my cherry tree - after 5 years - either it was the cold winter, or the tree finally matured. Anyway, it's exciting to see. The red tulips are up too (only three this year).

Must also remember that this feeling of being in limbo and caught between two timelines (KCH life and YVR life) is normal and mostly the result of jetlag and feeling sleepy and unable to do active things when supposedly awake, and totally awake and mind in overdrive when supposedly asleep. It's normal, things will settle down. Must also remember that you feel extra guilty when coming back here because leaving the P-units behind etc.

April 22nd: Woke up at 3am and fell asleep again, but did wake earlyish and even though groggy, took the pooch out for a run. Then a nap to rejuvenate - hate these sleepy pockets - but you just have to live through them. It would help to get a run in which is maybe something I'll do soon to get the body going again - it helps reset the clocks after all, or so I'm told. Then to homo depot to pick up some screws and latches, and check out wires, and eye hooks for new curtain project. Fixed freaking latch and lock after some mishaps with cracking wood and the like - but I think it'll work okay. Have some ideas now about curtain project. I think I would like an industrial look about this whole thing.
