I'm back *cough cough*

I got back Friday night / Saturday morning (plane landed just before midnight). I had planned to post on Saturday with a quick overview of all the places we went and then make posts over the next few days with more details and pics (assuming I actually got around to it since my post plans often fall through). Instead, I got off the plane with some kind of bug and spent most of the day Saturday vegging on the couch with no energy to do anything. I figured Sunday would be better. Instead, I went to bed at 7:30 Saturday night, got up for about half an hour at 11:30 Sunday morning (long enough to take my temperature which was 100.0, call Mom, and drink some orange juice and eat a toaster strudel), woke up for five minutes here and there, and then woke up for real at 8:00 Monday morning. So I basically slept for 35 out of 36 hours and I still feel like crap. I was not up to driving but a couple of friends got me to the student health center and back home today. There I was told I don't have swine flu, or any other kind of flu, so I'm on my own and should just rest until whatever virus I do have works its way through my system. Goody. I figure before I fall back asleep for possibly another 36 hours, I should at least let y'all know I'm back. I'll post about Germany when I'm feeling better, but for now I'll ay it was loads of fun and I at least managed to wait until I got back to get sick.

Yuck! And the jet lag can't help with the tiredness, either. I hope you're feeling back to normal soon, because I can't wait to hear about your trip. Missed you around here!

I'm suspicious that being up for over 24 hours straight on the day I flew back contributed to sleeping 35 of 36 hours, but after sleeping that much, I don' think the jet lagged bothered me anymore. I'm a bit out of whack on my sleep schedule still, but I think that has to do with not being able to make it through the day without napping thanks to still being a bit sick and not being able to time my naps quite right. I'm collapsing by 9:00 each night and then getting up around 6:00 each morning. I'd like to shift that about an hour and half on each end. Hopefully I'll be back to normal by the start of next week.

I hope you feel better soon. What a rotten end to what sounds like a good trip.

The ending could certainly have been better, but it was a fantastic trip and I promise all the details on that soon.
