Good news about the ultrasound! So I have to ask you, what is the time difference? If it's 9 a.m. here, what time is it there?

Ah yes, the exercise/weight thing! I am in the same boat! The desire is there but so is the ice cream! I keep thinking about our 2 week beach vacation with all of my tiny, petite SIL's and I cringe! Guess the ice cream needs to stay at the store!
I too have a lovely slim SIL and would trade anything for her figure. She is pregnant at the moment and still has a lovely figure even with 8 weeks to go! When I was that pregnant I looked like I had swallowed an elephant. Life is just not that fair!

Nine thirty now!!! Time differences are a weird concept. Trying to get Emma to understand that her Aunt in New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of us is just so confusing for her! She thinks it is strange that when she goes to bed on Christmas Eve her Aunt is getting up and opening her presents from Santa!

Its hard when we arrive in the States to get used to the difference. We have to try to stay up as lat as we can and keep the kids up. Then of course they wake up at 4am thinking it is morning!!!! Not good!

On the way home we leave Florida at 6pm and arrive home at 7am which is really 2am to our bodies as the flight is 8 hours. So we pretty much lose a whole night and it is really hard to get back into reality.

Good news on that ultrasound.

I understand about packing the suitcase. I have this bright orange carry-on suitcase that I have made my WDW suitcase. I keep everything related to going to the parks in there.

I am trying to walk as often as possible and also do a little yoga to try to get in better shape.

One of my friends has a way of avoiding jetlag. I'll ask her to type it up for me and I'll send it to you. I haven't traveled far enough to use it myself.

to getting over your cold and that your first day back after holiday goes well!

Enjoying reading your PTR! I love your unique perspective from Scotland! I haven't been nearby there since I was 7 years old (we were in London...so nearer than the US). My family name is Irish and we can trace one of my grandmothers to Ireland as well...but no connections to Scotland.

So glad to see that it is green there...we are only barely beginning to get green here!

It is so green here because of all the rain we get!!!!

Ireland is a beautiful country - I love it there! Helps that my favourite band are Irish!!! We have been over in Dublin for concerts and it is a lovely city - the people are so friendly and the accent is so nice! Have been to Northern Ireland a few times with work and have friends there. They love it and Belfast is a very vibrant city and not what you would imagine after the Troubles there. Would highly recommend a visit to both!

Thank you for the recommendation...

Oh, if rain were the only thing needed for it to green up here...we have had so much rain, rain, rain...but at least today is sunny!

Hope your day is going well (since it is afternoon for you now!)

Followed link to your TR. I'm a little behind, but the pictures of Scotland blew me away, so pretty. I can't wait to get caught up and read more .
Okay, caught up. I love slow days at work, but I made up for it on Monday. I work for a utility company. Monday was a due date for bills to be paid as well as shut off for non-payment of account. Your girls are so cute. I put my ticker up to remind me why I need to walk every night to get ready for the beach. I don't think that 1/2 of my summer clothes will even fit me. Look forward to more updates.

Here is my friends jetlag remedy:

If your flight arrives at your destination before noon, then you sleep 4 hours and get up and sleep normal that evening. If your flight arrives at your destination after noon, then you sleep for 2 hours and get up and sleep normal that evening. Has worked for me everytime, but that's going west to east. I'm not sure if going east to west would make any difference because you are basically gaining time not losing it.

Don't know if it would help you, but thought I would offer the idea.

That does make a lot of sense for the way home. We arrive in Edinburgh at about 10am so usually go home and have a few hours then stay up. Its very hard not to sleep for 10 hours!!!!!! We usually get a second wind anyway and a little take away curry in the evening with friends to catch up is on the cards for this year!
