We're back home in Shanghai! As a lifelong insomniac, I actually relish jet lag. It's the only time I can put my head on my pillow and be dreaming just a few minutes (if not seconds) later.
We arrived at the Shanghai Pudong airport at 6:30 p.m. yesterday, got home by 7:30, unpacked just the necessities while the boys climbed into bed fully clothed - snoring immediately, and laid down ourselves by 8:45 p.m. I never saw 9:00 p.m. on the clock. Next thing I knew, it was nine hours later. Nine hours of sleep is something like a miracle to me, plus I got a bonus of watching the sun rise above the buildings to the east from my bedroom window.
My Mom used to have a framed cross-stitch sampler that said If God intended for us to see the sun rise, He would have scheduled it later in the day. Amen to that.
I need to some time to collect photos and get them uploaded, but in the meantime I simply have to share this video of goats yelling like humans which has been making the rounds. The boys and I have watched it half a dozen times, tears of laughter streaking our cheeks each time. Though that just might be the jet lag leaking out. You be the judge.
