I hope Moni sees this and can check in with us. I've been thinking about her.

Yes, I am back. American Airlines cancelled my flight, and after a first thought, of just staying... All things changed. My daughter found me a one way ticket in a price range I could muster... and bought it, knowing I pay her back.

Thus, I flew home.

It all started, cause I could not sleep, but turned my phone on, and had a connection... at midnight on Sunday night.

At 5:30 AM I had boarding passes for all three flights, and at 10:00 AM I was at the Adelaide airport.

First plan took off and I started my stopwatch, to stop it once I landed in Dallas. 32 1/2 hours mostly wide awake.

Adelaide to Sydney, to Honolulu to Dallas.

I am now in self quarantine for 14 days. Hoping neither I, or my daughter that picked me up will get sick.

I will write something for my blog in a few days.


Thanks for asking, and thanks Rose for letting Rhizo know.

Glad you are back Moni and I'm sorry it was such a long trip home. Get some rest so you don't let your immune system crash. I hope you had a chance to get some groceries before self quarantining. Stay healthy....

I am fine. But should be in bed...

my daughter went to the grocery store before she drove to Dallas to get me. If we run out of something we will either make due, or call instacart to get it delivered.

Yes, she is in quarantine with me.

Glad you are home, Moni. One caution, don't expect Instacart deliveries to be readily available. Some areas are experiencing first available delivery times 5 - 7 days in the future.

Glad you're home!

This is an opportunity to mention something that I needed to remind myself about: Don't let virus stress give you *shingles*. Worrying is not only useless, but harmful.

I've been wondering about your whereabouts (still in A. or here,) for a week now--very glad you made it safely home and hope you had a good time with your sis. Rest up, Moni!

I will have to get busy and type my story in. Esther did not want me to put anything out, while she wasn't home. We have the same cycling friends... Anyway, I thought I was going to start when she went home, but could not get in to the website. and I still haven't tried since I came home, but then that as "just" day before yesterday.
