Home Again

We made it home. Safe and sound and sleepy.

The red-eye always seems like such a good idea. In theory. The boys will sleep! We’ll have some peace and quiet! We’ll have the whole day ahead of us to recover!

But somewhere along the line I forgot that the flight home is only 4 hours. That having “the whole day ahead of us” means sleepwalking through most of it. That coming home from a 3 week vacation means no food in the house. That it will take us all week to recover.

Still, as we walked to our apartment from the train station, dragging our 9 bags and 2 children behind us (plus the one who leads the way everywhere I go), I couldn’t help but enjoy seeing our neighborhood with fresh eyes, in a different light. Has that building always been there? Are there always this many people on the go at 7:00am? Do we usually get so many smiles?

Or am I just happy to be home?

  1. We thought the same thing when we went on our cruise, that we could just sleep on the plane for our red eye flight. I just forgot about the time change thing and that our flight was only 4 1/2 hours and it’s pretty much impossible to sleep on a plane. I vowed never to take a red eye again, at least not while pregnant. I’m glad your boys slept though.

    It has definitely taken me longer to recover from the redeye this year than it did last year. I just wish JetBlue had a direct flight from SLC to JFK that wasn’t a redeye. But since that isn’t the case, we’ll probably do it again next year.
