I hate jet lag. It seems to have gotten worse for me than it used to be. When I first moved here and returned from a trip to the States all I needed was one good night of sleep and I was pretty much back to normal. I’ve read that you should never take a nap on the day of arrival either but I always did that and did just fine. Now it seems to take at least five days to get back to a normal schedule of sleep. We are into the fourth day from our arrival back in Paris. The first night I got up at 4 AM, went back to bed at 6 AM and slept until 10:30. The next morning I made it until 5 AM. Last night we made the mistake of watching a football game on TV in our bedroom. I fell asleep around 11 PM and awoke at 2 AM to find Maurice still awake watching the TV. When he got up at 3 AM for a trip to the bathroom the bed side light woke me up shining in my eyes. At times like this I wish we hadn’t knocked down that wall to the second bedroom. I finally got up at 5:30 while Maurice slept until 11. I’m hoping tonight is the night it all becomes regular again but I don’t see how. I know it will all pass and return to normal soon.
