Time Zones

Just a quick post on my first morning back stateside, as I head off to jury duty (which my best friend happened to be call for the same day!).

The weather is incredible in Washington at the moment, and it seems I’ve missed the recent rains. The birds are singing outside and the blossoms are on the trees.Changing time zones can be different every time it seems. Some times I experience jet lag, but these days I’ve managed to nearly never experience it.

This morning, however, I’m completely thrown off by the daylight savings time thing. I woke up a bit on the early side at 5:30 (alarm set for 6), but enjoyed laying there, curling up to my husband, and contemplating all the changes to come in our lives (more on this later, as it deserves a full post).

When I did get up, I was literally walking around checking clocks to make sure that I didn’t accidentally wake up too early. It’s now almost 7am and it is now just starting to get light.

It’s been bright and sunny when I’ve woken up in Congo every morning, so this feels like a pretty big change.

Life is good.

    Well, if you have to be present for jury duty, the best friend’s presence is sure to make it a much nicer experience…

    ‘Drea – Yes, her presence made it all worth while. At least we got a nice lunch together! In the end we were actually both called for the same trial, and ended up being sat right next to each other at the final selection, when I was called off, and she was selected. A two week man-slaughter trial. I’ve enough on my plate that I don’t need that as well! Should be interesting though.
