Jiggity Jigg

...And just like that, the troops have reassembled.

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.
