I'm still up!
You have to love jet lag.
On Wednesday, August 29, 2007, I got up at 5:50 am Alaska Time (AKDT, at the moment, since it's daylight savings time here in the US), which is four hours behind EDT (Eastern Daylight Time).
Easy math=9:50 am EDT is when I woke up.
This was so we could eat breakfast before we got off of the cruise ship at 7:15 am AKDT. Remember, this is all on Wednesday, August 29, 2007.
At 5:20 pm AKDT (9:20 pm EDT), still on August 29th, my plane was scheduled to leave the Anchorage airport. Which is named after Ted Stevens, by the way, which I find hilarious. That aside, the plane sat on the runway for fifty minutes, as the pilots were waiting for the printer in the cockpit to tell them how much the luggage weighed. So finally, we were off.
At 10:39 pm PDT on August 29th (9:39 pm AKDT, 1:39 am EDT August 30th), our flight landed in Seattle for a scheduled stop--refueling, crew change, aircraft cleaning, exchange of certain passengers, etc. We were supposed to have arrived almost an hour earlier, but due to the printer in Anchorage, we got about fifteen minutes off the plane and then back on we went.
At 6:40 am EDT on August 30th (2:40 am AKDT), we finally landed at Newark Airport. This brought my sleepless hours to a grand total of 20 hours and 50 minutes, as I am not able to sleep on planes very well.
I got to my house at 9:30 am EDT on August 30th, after breakfast with my mother-in-law, who picked us up from the airport. She took us to a diner and pancakes were consumed.
We slept after that. All day. Most of the day. Three-quarters of the day.
Now I have been up all night, since I slept all day, and it is 9:03 am EDT on August 31st. My body has absolutely no idea what time zone it's in. Zoe and I have spent the better part of the past night watching "Hana Yori Dango, Season 2", and cuddling. She is a very needy little girl now, which is natural since we left her alone for days upon days, with only my parents for company.
The whole point of all of this is that while I expected to be able to actually do work today, I'm not sure that I'll be awake to do so. Yay jet lag! But that's ok, as Labor Day is Monday, and then my sleep patterns should have calmed down by Tuesday.
Thanks for listening to me babble. =)
Oh, and we weighed Zoe, and lo and behold... we go on vacation.... and she grew! She's 11.6 lbs of cat! Oh my!
