Jet-Lag x6

This week has been a “let’s get over the jet-lag” week, which, in our book means “let’s not plan anything.” For this I’m thankful! In between school and sleep, I think that’s about all I’m up for. There is a park right by our flat, so I have taken the kiddos there a few times to let them get some of their energy out.

Jet-lag is the pits. Thankfully our kids are sleeping through the night now–unfortunately they aren’t going to bed until past 1am and then sleeping until 12pm–little by little it’s getting better though. I’m looking forward to when we are all back on Central European time!

One thing I have been surprised and grateful for is that Edinburgh seems to be a late-night city. By this, I mean restaurants and pubs are open late as are the grocery stores. This makes it much more convenient for us as we continue to adjust to this new time zone–although you can’t buy alcohol at the grocery store past 10pm in the UK, so if you’re running to the store because you’re in the mood for a glass of wine you’ll be out of luck and have to settle for Ben and Jerry’s…which I guess isn’t so bad.

  1. Wow, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Scotland! What’s the Scot’s favorite flavor? . . . . And I agree, getting over jet lag takes time. I usually force myself to sleep with the aid of a sleeping pill the first couple of nights in order to get on the new time zone faster. Probably not a great idea for the kidos though. Sending hugs from Phoenix where I have an hour an half layover till my flight leaves for Austin. (ABQ to Phoenix to Austin is sure a weird route for Southwest.)❤️❤️ Lizzie
