We're still catching up back here on the boat. Jet lag is still rearing its ugly head as my boy chatters until midnight. The unpacking seems endless. The cold is pushing us indoors more than usual. And the terrible antics of Mother Nature threw our whole weekend out of whack. With a major, devastating earthquake in Chile (where my step-dad lives along with all the cousins and tias and such from my mom's side) and the threat of a tsunami in Hawaii (where my dad, step-mom, and friends are)... we spent most of our first days home wringing our hands and furrowing our brows, waiting on pins and needles for news from loved ones. The long and short of it is, everyone is ok. Our last unaccounted for family members finally checked in yesterday, on my birthday, and that was the best gift of all. Words cannot describe how happy we are to be home. Bear with me as I try to catch my breath and crawl back to normal...
