What’s worse? Jet lag or war?

As if jet lag, back-to-school prep, protecting my kids from a polio outbreak and returning to work after a 2 1/2 week long digital detox wasn’t stressful enough, now I have to worry about a Syrian attack before Thursday.


TOMORROW is Thursday?

Holy crap.


I should have bought more Tums while I was in the States.

Or I should have taken a longer vacation.

Either way, I am in deep doo doo because my stomach just can’t handle the stress.

Last night was the first full night sleep I have gotten in three days. THREE DAYS.

And tonight I have to attend a women’s birth circle on Hannaton. (Don’t ask.)

I have no time to clean out the MAMAD!

No time!

No time before Thursday!

Do you hear that John Kerry! No time!!!!!

Okay, I’m breathing.

And eating Tums.

And hoping all of this goes down the way of the Japanese dinosaur prank.

It’s scary for a few minutes until you realize the dinosaur is wearing jeans.

    1. No. They are packed in their original boxes and stacked like legos in the MAMAD. That said, I do have at least a two week supply of water and packaged food.


  1. oh wow, I know we in the states can’t possibly know what that feels like…but we are feeling for you. Stay safe and take a few deep breathes…..we will be hearing from you soon…I know it!


  2. Jen, you and your family are in my thoughts. We all live somewhere close to the brink of the crazy that could happen at any moment. I can’t imagine what it must be like to live with knowing it is coming tomorrow. Please keep us updated.

    (How was your birthday?)


    1. Thanks Andra. Birthday was low key, but i meditated as i committed to. No epiphanies, but my digital detox offered me much life clarity — if not specific answers. šŸ™‚
