That hasn't happened for seven or eight years, I am sure, and probably never as far as the kids are concerned. What happened to create the circumstance of all of use being up and about at midnight was that we'd arrived home from our Xmas holiday only about an hour earlier! A bonus, I guess, of our flight being 5-6 hours late departing from JFK.
On the other hand, the jet lag is never a bonus! I had hopes of taking Madeline to see a couple of shows on Broadway, but the best we could manage was a matinee on Sunday. Both of us were usually dead asleep by seven pm every night!
I'm half-way unpacked, but I still can't find where I put my house-keys or my iPod Touch. So frustrating!
It also looks like my brand-new Kindle had a life-span of five days - it's screen is 90% white and streaky, and it wouldn't even turn on today (48 hrs after a full battery charge). I seriously loved that thing, though. Brilliant. I managed to get through two-and-a-half books in those five days!
My kids were good little passengers for the eighteen-hour flights. Both of them slept and watched movies nearly the entire time (Cathay Pacific has a really large assortment of children's programming). I spent several hours holding the headphones over Sadie's ears because they were too large for her little head!
Anyway, it's time to call this a night! Happy 2011 (or MMXI)!
