Back to reality

Despite my good intentions and my new, cute little netbook, I never did post here during my trip to Australia last week. There was just too much to see and do, and no down time to catch up. So be warned, I may just be waxing poetic about my trip for a few posts now that I'm back home and have a 12-hour sleep under my belt. But really, was the nor'easter blizzard that hit Massachusetts really necessary? It was a bit of a rude shock to the system after all the mild-to-hot weather in Sydney and Uluru (aka Ayer's Rock).

I'm still somewhat in that Dreamtime state of mind, and I don't think I can attribute it to jet lag (I love Qantas! If you ever fly it long-haul business class, be sure to get some of their pajamas. You'll not only sleep better on board, but you'll have a new favorite set of nightwear. Trust me on this). I know I have to jump into work, but my mind keeps going back to the people I've met, the places I experienced, the camel I rode at dawn...it really was the trip of a lifetime, and I want to savor it while it's still fresh in my mind.

But they don't pay me the big bucks to ruminate, so I better get some work done first...
