Yesterday I was able to get the kids outside again, we played at the playground and we all had a good time. I had to cut the visit a little short because it started to snow and was very windy and cold, but for my first solo visit I think things went well! Sawyer is definitely "over" the excitement of our visits! The last 3 times he has thrown a fit when we arrive, today I just let the nannies take him back to the groupa and Kenzie and I hung out in the hallway. I will try again tomorrow. I am not sure how he's going to react when we leave here ..... but I'm pretty sure it's not going to be pleasant for anyone!
I had planned on going to Sovietska and the open air market today to look for shoes and tights for the kids, but it was really cold and I'm not feeling well so I came back to the apartment and took a nap. I haven't really had a full nights sleep since we've been gone and It's starting to wear on me! My body just will NOT regulate to the time change. I'm struggling to stay awake at 2pm and then when it's bedtime I'm wired, so today I just gave in and slept for about three hours and hopefully tonight I can get some more.....I see more benadryl in my future! The market is closed on Mondays so I will head down there on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.
Jon made it to Kiev without any problems, he ended up having a first class cabin on the train all to himself and was able to get some rest. Sasha told me he was nervous about leaving me here alone, so she's been checking on me : ) I really am fine! Just lonely at times. Nico met him at the train station, gave him a phone and got him settled into an apartment for the day. We were able to talk throughout the day while Jon went exploring. He found some stores that we'll have to visit when we get back to Kiev and bought a few children's books in English/Russian. I just checked on his flight and he is about 2 hours outside of Chicago, so far his flights have been on time. I'm worried that he might get stuck in Chicago though, the weather there is bad and his flight doesn't leave until 5pm. Well, that's all for now, I don't have any new pics...maybe tomorrow!
