Home for a day

Well, I got in late and didn't get to sleep until well after 1:00 in the morning. Despite having very little sleep over the last few days, I found myself awake at a bit after 7:00 am. In Uganda, it's after 2:00 in the afternoon. It wasn't that bad though as I had a lot to accomplish in one day and the most important part was spending some quality time with my son.

I took a few hours to take care of things; unpacking, laundry, 3 weeks of mail, bills, and getting stuff together for the next trip. Got the kid up around 10 and gave him a few things to do before we went out. I got back to working on my things and he on his. A little after 1:00 I had made a lot of progress and he was essentially done. Getting ready to go I noticed a set of keys missing. I called the wife and it turns out she had them and she was at work. Oh, well, a new plan is called for -- lunch somewhere.

After wrapping all that up, finishing the bills (how did there get to be so many?), and a quick trip to Oliver's, my local watering hole, I was ready to start packing. As an old pro, I was done pretty quickly. By the time I got the remaining items done I hit the sack about midnight. Then, the burger from lunch reminded me it was still there. I took measures to show it who was boss and finally nodded off around 12:30.

There's nothing like a good 3 hours sleep to really refresh you. Now here it was a bit after 5:00 am and I was on my way to yet another airport.
