here we are, texas

How cute is she. Texas, see you tomorrow.

Well, we're here in the great state of Texas. We landed a week ago, and it has felt like a whirlwind already. Today is the first day I've sat down and tried to respond to emails and think. Combine jetlag with culture shock, and you've got yourself a nice helping of brain fog. I find myself looking into a car to see where the steering wheel is so I know which side to get in on. I've also tried several times to turn the bathroom light on from the outside of the bathroom (there's no plug outlets or light switches inside a bathroom in SA). It's so funny the things you get used to.

Isn't my girl too cute? She packed more stuff than any of us. We told her she had to carry her own stuff and amazingly, she did. She looks just like her daddy toting around her guitar. If you need any helpful tips for packing for a trip, I've got you covered over at Petit Elefant.

Happy Tuesday!

Sorry if this is a duplicate comment - my first one disappeared...

I always have to look in the car to find the steering wheel, too...

Hoping Emma G's bag is mostly empty; shopping is so much cheaper in America!

Hope things calm enough for you to hit 'refresh' Got to appreciate a gal who carries her own gear :-)

Welcome back to Texas! Make sure to eat your fill of tacos and queso - we've missed you :)

it is funny the things you get used to. Most of the time in Jamaica I wave my hands under the paper towel dispensers in restaurant bathrooms for a while before realizing: a) they are not automatic, silly and b) they don't ever have paper towels in them, anyway!
Hope you can get some rest & adjust ok!

Welcome home! I'm terribly behind on blogs, but I just HAD to comment on this one! :) Seriously, we have to get together while you're here this time! Will you be near Houston at all? If not, we might possibly be up your way at some point. Not sure how long you're staying, but maybe we can work something out!
