OMG we are tired. / by Mark Nunneley

Yes we are all exhausted.    Our plane left Chicago at 5:00PM which is midnight Rome time.   It was a 9 hour flight.   So the game plan was to go to sleep as quickly as possible once our flight took off.   We tried.  Everything.   Meds, herbal pills, masks, ear plugs, you name it.    It isn't ever easy to sleep on planes.   Because we booked our flight a year ago we were able to have bulk head seats which meant we could stretch out our legs but still sleeping was hard.   Our exhaustion was showing all day.
