The return flight seemed to go smoothly, although TeenTuna lost some HBA items to airport security when she mistakenly tossed it in her carry-on instead of her suitcase. I hope they enjoy her foot lotion and her hair straightener. I also hope they don't mix them up and use them on the wrong body part. Then again, maybe I DO hope they mix them up...
I can't give many details of the trip, because it seems we picked up a zombie who came home, ate, showered, and collapsed. It wasn't surprising, since it was about 3am Germany time. I have the sneaking suspicion that reentry this week is going to be difficult. Oh well, that's the price you pay when you're a teen aged world traveler.
I had several people ask me if I was going to cut loose, get arrested, or kick back and relax while she was gone. The answer ended up being: no, no, and no. It was a regular double work week with a large dollop of not enough sleep. I did manage to complete an exorcism in my bathroom, but that didn't happen until yesterday.
And tomorrow we're right back at it again. Luckily it's a short week at school, but even that is full of school, work, teaching, lessons and rehearsals. It's going to be a long holiday weekend full of making up the homework. It won't be fun, I'm sure, but it's a fair price to pay, all things considered. Meanwhile I look forward to a short but (hopefully) good nights sleep, knowing that everybody is home safe and sound.
