I finally did it!

I am so happy this morning!

I woke up before 8 a.m.!!!!!

After returning from a two month visit to the United States, I have been struggling to wake up each morning. I get terrible jet lag after I travel by airplane. So no matter what I have tried over the past few days, I just couldn’t get up before 10 a.m., until this morning!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Maybe our late sleeping in had to do with us lugging: eight 50# duffle bags, 4 HEAVY loaded carry-on suitcases, a hard shell guitar case filled with 30# of stuff inside, a violin, a CPAP machine, a filled fishing rod carrying case, and 4 stuffed backpacks in a 8 hour car ride to Vegas (I drove the entire way), a red-eye flight to Atlanta that landed at 3:30 a.m. (Utah/CR time), then a 15 hour lay-over that finally got us on a plane to Costa Rica that landed at 10:30 p.m.

Then, after getting home after 11:00 p.m., we realized we had accidentally grabbed the wrong duffle bag (because we were looking for our new pillows to sleep on and that happened to be the missing bag that we needed). So Paul and I jumped into the car and raced back to the airport to retrieve our missing bag. Needless to say, we got to bed after 2 a.m. 🤦🏻‍♀️

In total, we “traveled” for over 42 hours.

Yeah! That’s probably a good reason why we are ALL so wiped out. 😩 Thankfully Paul treated both GingerSnap and I to a massage last Friday. It was oh-so wonderful, but my back hasn’t been the same ever since. I think I need to stretch it out?!? Or maybe give it some exercise? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Well, here’s to a fantastic start to a FULL DAY!!!!

Happy Monday!
