Jet Lagged

We return from the States a couple of days ago and we are a pretty much jet lagged.   The strange thing is is that I usually don’t get jet lagged when returning to Japan.  Haruka pretty much slept for the majority of the plane trip back, and throughout the two hour drive from the airport.  By the time we got back to Yokohama, she was charged up and ready to go; I was extremely exhausted and ready for bed, but we all know who wins in situations like this.

Haruka did eventually get to sleep, but not for long.  She woke us all up at around 4AM, and wanted all of us up.  I was not charged up yet, but of course, I had to get up.  We were all up for the majority of the morning until exhaustion overcame all of us and we all fell asleep at around noon (including Haruka).  This was bad -very bad.  I slept until about 6PM, but Haruka refused to wake up.  She slept until about 8PM or so, and  wasn’t really interested in eating dinner at all.   This is probably due to the fact that she ate a whole bunch of junk food in the morning.  She had a couple of bites of dinner and was energetic once again.  I was pretty much wide awake myself and wasn’t ready for bed…so I thought.  At about 10PM, I was out like a light again.  Haruka and my wife eventually woke me up at around 12:40AM to move me up to the bedroom, which wasn’t a good move, because once I was awake, I stayed awake.  As a matter of fact, it’s 7:33am now, and I have yet to sleep.  Haruka woke my wife up again at around 4:30AM, because she was hungry.  Hopefully this all subsides soon because I have to be at work tomorrow AM.  I already feel sleepy, Haruka just had her bath and full of energy, which I suspect will last until about 1PM, when she’ll probably feel sleepy again and sleep the entire afternoon.  This is one thing I don’t like about traveling overseas.  I really does screw you up.
