Igor is on the plane making his way back to Ukraine. Tyler is on a plane heading back to Columbus from the airport in Atlanta.
You know how you can be full of mysterious energy, adrenaline I guess, while something is happening and then once it’s over you are just wiped out?
That’s how I feel. I’ve been hyper vigilant and on my toes non-stop for eleven weeks, and now I can suddenly relax a little.
I may need to sit and do nothing for two weeks.
Ok that can’t really happen because of homeschooling, a toddler, and chores…but I can dream.
My house is currently a disaster. It’s all little stuff that will be easy to clean up, I just need the energy and motivation to do it. Hah!
We’ve never lived in Columbus or in this house without Igor. He moved here with us! I feel like we’re forgetting him somewhere. We went to the park this morning and to Target this afternoon. There was no one asking a thousand questions or making non-stop complaints to get attention, no one bossing the other kids around and pissing them off, no one asking how many more minutes in the car every second of the drive…
It was kind of sad and lonely. Eleven weeks is a long time to spend with someone.
Here’s a picture of Igor and Tyler on the plane from Columbus down to the Atlanta airport to meet up with the rest of the hosting group this morning:
