Where I stayed
our new digs
This place is huge!!! I had no idea!! So big in fact, that even though we arrrived into Zurich, drove to our house with our dear transitional specialist Angelika, unpacked, cooked dinner, bathed, laughed, celebrated, jumped up and down, and finally settled in some (in about 2 hours) -- we are now all sleeping (loosely translated) in the main living quarters together on mattresses on the floor because we cannot stand to split up and goto our separate beds.
It is really really stressful on all of us right now. The only one who has yet to ball her eyes out is Serena!! She stayed strong through the whole thing, and said she was actually already feeling normal, like home.
Kayley is having a particularly rough time, the flight, stress, new sheets, etc
Its 4am and I am tossing and turning and emailing instead of sleeping now.
We know it will all get better in a week or two, but as for now we are really stressed out and dealing with the much anticipated jetlag homesickness that I am sure is all normal and blah blah blah.
Frankly, we are a bit terrified.
Anyways, I need to try to wind down
We will try going to church on Sunday. Maybe to walk in Old Town on Sat. This is the first lovely weekend in months here.
Funny, weather for our travels.
I sat next to a man on the plane (3 hour delay, missed connection) who works in logistics, who literally said that it sounds like Brain was coming in to save all of Europe!! He says Holcim is incredibly well known and respected, and if they set to make the much needed worldwide antitrust changes that he is here to help regulate, many other companies will follow.
I explained the importance to Kayley, and she agreed that we need to at least give it a couple of weeks before we beg to go home. That and 40 winks... goodnight
