So, I still have some unfinished Korea posting business, so I will be doing a few more posts on this side of the world about that side of the world...yes, I even have another Korenglish post for you. Stay tuned!
During our last weekend in Korea, we went with our friends to the Flower Market and then to the Seoul Grand Park Zoo. It was a very fun day, but I didn't get very many or very good pictures...sorry!
Below, you will find an entertaining picture of a monkey reaching through the bars to get a cracker from a man who clearly could not read the English sign saying "Don't feed the animals." The quality of life is not the same here as it is for animals in the US. We were disappointed by how run down some of the areas were. When he started feeding them, the monkeys went bananas! ;o)
Not a great picture, but they had a fabulous dolphin show. Too fun!
So on a totally different note, this adjusting to jet lag thing has been hard! I have been doing pretty well, but my baby girl is strugglin'!!! The first night, I had a hard time going to sleep and was wide awake by 4:30. Adeline dozed off and on in 1 hour increments for the first two nights. I have been waking her from her afternoon naps after three hours to try to get her back on track, but I think she is just crazy exhausted by this point. She has been waking up at 3:30 every morning. Yesterday, my mom and I decided we should let her sleep as long as she needs to for her afternoon nap to help her try to catch up, and we would put her to bed a bit later if she woke too close to her bedtime. Well, she fell asleep in the car on the way home from visiting a friend today, and so I put her down in her crib when we got home. She has been asleep since 2:30...it is 10:30. I am hoping that this will help her to get back on track. I am hoping she doesn't decide midnight is a good time to be awake for the night. She usually sleeps 12 hours, and one night a few weeks ago she slept for 14 1/2 hours after a particularly busy day. Here's to hoping this will get her back on track. I'll keep you "posted."
While you're praying....I spent a lot of time on the phone today with a lot of different people, few of which were helpful, as I tried to resolve the issue of Adeline's ticket. One agent even hung up on me as I was asking a question, and I was not even raising my voice at her. I was a bit defensive, but I was really trying to be mature and kind to the woman keeping me from my refund. sigh....
I got a few leads which may help, but I purchased the ticket a year ago, so it is hard to track the record of the sale. I somehow need to prove that I paid for an infant ticket in July of 2007. I'll be back at it tomorrow.
Adeline is crying...gotta go....PRAY PEOPLE, PRAY!!!
