Second Major Trip, off to a bad start....

Well, I'm on board a flight from DFW to SAN for my second major flight since my Narcolepsy/Cataplexy Diagnosis....and its kind of off to a bad start.

While...the flights have been largely uneventful. There have been other issues.

In the rush for the last few steps that I need to do before I leave home, I did remember the usual like unplug hot water pot. Water plant, refill humidifier....though not the air washers. And, this time I did remember to set vacation hold on my thermostat. So first test of the days hold feature of my thermostat, meaning it shouldn't be freezing or a sauna (depending on what the weather is like when I'm away) when I get home.

However, I while in the air from MHK to DFW, it dawned on me that I didn't pack my pillow alarm. Will have to see what I can improvise when I get to hotel. And just now it occurs to me that I didn't pack my rollerpen, for writing in case my fountain pen (which I did pack) fails to make it...or runs out early. Though I also forgot to pack my (good) notebook, so I might not do much writing at all.

The other thing is that I wish I had gone to the chiropractor before this trip....my dizziness has been awful sometimes now. And, my back had started killing me on Friday....is now making air travel that much more painful. Might also cut into my activities at the conference.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out what kind sleep schedule I'm going to have during this conference....

But first, time for a $10 roast beef sandwich.....
