We're Home!

We got to our house just after midnight this morning, had a decent-if-somewhat-short night's sleep, and picked up an excited Matthew from my sister's house mid-morning.  The rest of the day saw us just hanging out together, and starting the unpacking process.  Unfortunately, I have a mild version of what Geoff had on the weekend, so I'm a little stomach sick...after being so careful, too.

It's 8:30pm and I'm barely hanging on to consciousness until Matthew falls asleep.  I'm totally knackered.

More later.  Need to run to the bathroom.


  1. Looking forward to seeing all your pictures!!!!

    Praying you get well soon!

  2. Welcome back Ruth !!!!!!!
    What a journey it has been so far,
    Thanks so much for bringing me along.
    I hope some sleep in your own bed recharges your heart and body.
    Sending you lots of love as you settle into this next part of the wait ( the part I always feel will be the hardest for me )

  3. Hi Ruth. I don't think I've ever commented on your blog before but just wanted to tell you how great your Ethiopian posts were. I'm so sorry you didn't have the outcome you were hoping for, but I hope and pray it will just take time. What is it about Ethiopia that just gets in your blood??? We adopted a little girl in 2009 and long to go back and show her her homeland. It's a very special place. Hope you get over your jet lag and that you don't get too sick. Welcome home. L. Galloway

  4. Glad to hear that you are home. Hope that the stomach thing passes quickly and that you are able to readjust to the time change quickly. Looking forward to a visit when you have time.

  5. Ruth,

    Glad to hear you are home safely.
    I pray your tummy troubles will pass swiftly!
    Take care,

  6. FYI, it took me a good week to get over the jetlag. So give yourself time to re-adjust.


    Coffee time soon too????

  7. Hope your post-trip adjustment goes smoothly, and that you feel better quickly.

  8. welcome home. I sure hope you heal up quickly, and adjust back to this time, and just can enjoy your weekend home wth Geoff and Matthew. Matthew must have been over the moon to see yoU! love darci
