Am Back

Actually, I came back from Tibet two weeks ago. But is it only me or does everyone feel a low after a vacation? Up until now, I’d always had to go straight back to work the very next day I came back from a trip, so no matter how depressed I was, I still had to get up and throw myself back into the routine. This time was different though. I could sleep in all I want and didn’t have to get out of the house if I didn’t want to. Which is exactly what I did. The first week, I barely got out of bed before 10am everyday and the hot and humid weather gave me the perfect excuse to hole up in the house except Libby’s walks. I didn’t cook much either, and we lived mostly on fruits and porridge for an entire week. That somehow felt good, but enough is enough. So now I’m back, 100%.

Here’s a picture of the fireworks last night at the Gaien baseball stadium, shot from my rooftop.

I think the thing that makes it so depressing about coming home from a trip is the MOUNTAIN of laundry that needs to be washed and put away or taken to the dry cleaner and the equally huge pile of mail that has accumulated and must be sorted. I still have things piled up from a trip to Mexico last September that I haven't decided what to do with! And usually I am so tired (and FAT) from eating in restaurants that all I really want to eat are plain things like soup or bread.

Welcome back to blogging! Yeah, know what you mean about after-holiday blues. Then again, with Sara now, there's no time for blues. I guess it's much like work - no time to feel down. Baby has to be fed, groceries to be bought, etc.

That said, I haven't had real holidays since having the baby. Boy, am I looking forward to getting back to Tokyo.

michelleb, ditto the FAT part. I totally lose control when I'm on vacation and gorge myself until I'm sick!

Hsin, it's so hot now in Tokyo, u sure you want to come back? I played tennis this morning from 8-10, and I thought I was going to die =o(

Karen said...

Oh yes you're back! I was wondering what became of you, and Libby too! Hehe!

I can relate to the post-trip depression. It's like a sudden drop of adrenaline or worse, like a love lost. ;-)

However, welcome back! I missed your posts.

Lynn said...

Thanks, Karen! You were right on, it was like a love lost. So depressing. But I'm over it now. Life has to go on, and so does my blog ;o)

What about your cucumber? Did it die in a horrifying way?

Lynn said...

No, my cucumbers survived miraculously but refused to bear fruit. So I killed it last weekend to grow rosemary instead.

Welcome back Lynn - like hsin says I know what you mean by after holiday blues, but I'm sure you had a great time in Tibet...

Chao said...

Hum, because it can't bear any offspring for you, so you terminated it and replaced it with something else ... hum ... Well, welcome back and thanks for the blogs and wonderful pictures ...

Lynn said...

Keiko, we had a great time in Tibet. I'll get to blogging about it, one of these days...

Chao, what are you trying to say, huh?
