Well, I made it back. The plane got in to Detroit about 5:00PM and I was home about an hour later. It appears that I am going to have jet lag all over again, because I woke up at 7:30 this morning and just have no inclination at all of going back to bed.

I watched a number of films on the plane, including Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, and Herbie: Fully Loaded. The first and third movie were pretty much exactly what you expect - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star in the Smith movie, and they do a good job of making it entertaining. A Herbie movie is a Herbie movie is a Herbie movie - cute car, auto racing, etc. But the Sisterhood film was quite good - just fluffy enough for an airplane ride, but really quite nice - a movie Judy Bloom would have made, if she made movies.

So when we made it back to the apartment, I discovered it had changed quite a little bit since I was last in it! We have furniture everywhere now. Stacked two deep, in some cases. So that will be a task for the coming days or weeks. And of course, now I can start thinking about finding a job....

Crazy! We arrived back to our nearest airports at almost exactly the same time! *laugh* Glad you made it back safely.

Oh...and I didn't see it on the plane, but I also saw the new Herbie movie while I was with friends in Damascus. Amazing how parallel our trips were in many ways. (I saw lots of Roman ruins, too) I also saw "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" while in Petra, Jordan b/c they use it for some scenes at the end.

Thanks much Nikki, but I think I might have to pass on that! *laugh* Unlike the last time I came back from abroad, I can afford to be selective this time!
