I woke up this morning with a headache. It comes from the stupidity of thinking that if I wake in the middle of the night with a headache that I can sleep it off. This never works. I wake up later with a worse headache every single time. I can't figure why it seems like more hassle to use 20 seconds to take something at 3 a.m. than it is to continue to suffer a few hours later. Except perhaps 20 seconds at 3 a.m. feels like an eternity.
The jetlag see-saw continues. I survived all day yesterday after falling asleep somewhere around 5:30 a.m. and getting up at 9:45 a.m. Dance Dance Revolution, sitting by the pool in the rain, and Lego Star Wars got me through the day. Tonight we have a new family arriving so I'm busy with getting their stuff prepared. Mainly just hitting the commissary, we did Amma Naana last night, and checking on the house to make sure there are no holes in the ceiling or rats nesting in cupboards. The basics in India.
School starts on Monday, Katherine is nervous but getting excited. Rebecca doesn't want to go into 4th grade but I think she's secretly excited too. Nicholas is a little hyper about the whole thing. Jonathon is ready but, well, he's Jonathon. There will be a settling in period. Tomorrow is a bus meeting at the Consulate, I'll be at the school but Ian will attend and let me know the schedule. I'm hoping it'll be much like last year, though with Katherine's day 30 minutes longer we'll all be stretching our days out.
I'm off for now. Ian is going to the airport at 11 p.m. so there's a chance (if I'm not hopefully asleep well before then) that I'll put another trip entry up. Maybe.
