Thought for the Day--March 6, 2011: Home! And a Confession...

We returned home today from Macedonia.

All told, it was a 23-hour trip, if you count waiting in various airports for connecting flights and driving home from Dulles (in pouring, torrential rain, no less).

We left Skopje at 3:00 a.m. (9:00 p.m. EST) and arrived at our doorstep at 7:00 p.m. EST.

On our United flight, we were fortunate enough to be assigned seats behind the crew seats, so we had TONS of leg room.

About every hour, I exercised my legs (also, we wear compression socks during long flights--uncomfortable, but supposedly good for preventing embolisms).

A confession: I ate two pieces of airline peach-cherry cake. I swiped my husband's piece when he was asleep (he doesn't like fruit, so I wasn't really "stealing" it from him).

I don't know why I ate two pieces (one would have been enough), except out of boredom during the interminable flight.

It wasn't that good.

Tomorrow, back to tracking...
