The Longest Day

Got up yesterday around 0620 in Chengdu and went to bed around 2130 in Maryland.  Same day.  Damn was that a long day!  I think it was the first night since I left that I got a full night's sleep, however.  Couldn't find the melatonin, but I didn't seem to need it.  Woke up when the family got back from Chestertown and again around 0800.  Very nice.  I don't have to be back at work until Tuesday, so I'll see the local friends at the Federally Mandated BBQ. 

I have so much to tell you guys about, like my new best friend, the day in the life post that lj ate, getting used to aftershocks, being on TV/asking questions at the first press conf, how amazingly good the food was, etc.  I would do that all now, but I've got a million things to do now that I'm home.  For starters, there's hugging these kids for hours on end, then gardening, cleaning, washing my few clothes (I packed light... did I tell you about that?), and the like.

More to come, but for now... c'mere you cute kids...
