Home Sweet Home

I arrived last night after a very turbulent flight. Do turbulent flights cause a plane's cabin pressure to fluctuate? I don't know what it was but I had a massive headache on the flight and had to take an extra-strength ibuprofen to dull the pain. I don't think being congested with a head cold helped either.

My brother picked me up from the airport and one of the first things he said to me was "You sound like crap." What, my voice made deeper and raspy from my cold isn't sexy and mysterious? I know it sounds better when I sing. :) Anyway, the DVP was closed and didn't re-open until early this morning I was supremely jetlagged on top of that so I stayed at my mom's last night and called in sick this morning.

I laid on the couch most of the morning and early afternoon and finally pulled myself together for the drive downtown to my place around 3pm. I spent most of the rest of the day unpacking and doing laundry. I've got piles of papers and stuff to sort through including 2 weeks of mail and can't deal with those right now.

My building's had a rash of security issues in the last few months - mainly break-ins to lockers and cars in the parking garage - thankfully I haven't been affected. Since the building was turned over, our Board's been working on a solution because, obviously, there's a great deal of concern, so our key fob entry system is being upgraded on the 30th. The exchange for the new key fobs happened last week, while I was away so I sent an email earlier to the building manager to arrange a time for an exchange. In preparation for this exchange, I've got to make copies of various documents, including my deed, which I now have to gather up. Once that's done, it's time for bed. Ahhh...Sleeping in my own bed for the first time in 19 days. Sweet.

I've got the Sporting Life 10K this Sunday to prepare for, plus my mom's also back from HK tomorrow night so I probably won't have time to post any pics until next week at the earliest. I'm looking forward to sharing the pics since it was such a great trip! Til then...sweet dreams.

April 30 Update: I know I said I wasn't going to do any trip posts until next week at the earliest but I had the previous food blogs written and all that was missing was the pics...and since I'm procrastinating...well...feast your eyes on the culinary delights.

Hopefully, no one from Mexico was on the plane!

Guess what? I'm going to Barcelona at the end of May. I will definitely keep my eye out for the places you went to - esp. Bar Mut! The food looked fantastic.
