Jet Lag


I really don’t understand jet lag.

Oh, I understand the principle behind it, just not “logic” of how it works.

For example, since our return, I wake up at 3 to 4 in the morning, that’s 6 -7 PM in Taipei. Not me usual “wake-up’ time.
Come around 1PM, I’m suddenly falling asleep again (that’s 4 AM Taipei time, and significantly later than then I would be going to bed)
After a few hours, I’m wide awake again (OK, that coincides roughly with morning in Taipei)
But then i crash again at 9:00PM (noon, Taipei)

Rather than just being ‘off’ 15 hours, I seem to be cycling through short periods of wakefulness and sleep. Hopefully it will get straightened out soon.

I had lots of paper to go through, so it wasn’t a problem that I was in the office before 5:00AM this morning, but I don’t want to do it everyday.

Luckily, Friday is a holiday, making this a two-day week for me, then I’ve got 3 more days to “recover”

The kids are all messed up, too. That doesn’t help.
