Here are some things I have learned today:
Jetlag is a real condition. It feels like a combination of a hangover and a cold. Pretty miserable.
I have too many clothes. I have spent the day unpacking my suitcase, and, lo and behold, my closet was already full. With my new outfits that I inherited from a friend in the US and accidentally bought at REI, there is a slight shortage of space. The solution: Move the summer clothes to a different venue and I have space for more.
Norway is colder than Colorado, Michigan and Minnesota in October. Makes me miss Colorado, Michigan and Minnesota.
When I go and buy groceries for the week in Norway I spend 170 dollars. That is a lot more than I would spend in other countries. (Mind you, I did not buy fillet mignon, wine or imported cheese, just TP, flour, veggies, bananas, microwave popcorn and that kind of stuff.)
Even though the floors were spotless and clean yesterday, they got dirty today.
Kids haven’t necessarily learned how to pick up after themselves even though mom has been gone for three weeks.
Burma hasn’t changed much even though I was gone for three weeks.
I came back too late to pick the cranberries in the forest.
One needs a scarf when going outside in October.
I take crappy photos.
Our dog Marley loves me so much he dances to make sure I know. It is the truth.
Jetlag is real (like I already said).
