...use a travel alarm clock?
Somewhere in the far recesses of one of my dresser drawers is my travel alarm clock. But it's lost to a back corner of the drawer, just like my class ring. I am still hopeful I find my ring, but the travel alarm clock is something that is no longer part of my life, even one as cute as this one I found on pinterest. I haven't brought an alarm clock on a trip in years, generally relying on hotel wake-up calls. But this was one thing on the suggested list from the college, a list I didn't look at until we were on the train to Massachusetts. I'd never used the alarm clock on my phone, and Jane, my college roommate, had some doubts about my technical expertise and was afraid we would sleep through the entire reunion. I assured her that 1) I could learn to use the phone alarm and 2) it's a long time since I have slept soundly through anything. No surprise, I was up before 7:00 a.m. and the alarm worked just fine. Inquiring minds want to know, have you switched over to the alarm on your phone, or do you still use a travel clock?
I returned from Massachusetts to summer in New York City. My surgery is exactly two weeks from today and I had my pre-surgical testing this morning. I will be working four more days, two days this week and two days next week, and then will be going out on medical leave. My leg does hurt, but I am not sorry for delaying the surgery for the trip to Rochester, Reunion and an event in New York next week. I hated the thought of missing the first two events and I am hopeful that I will be able to attend the program next week. I find I am very tired at the end of the work day and fall asleep early. I don't get to do much blog visiting, so I am very appreciative that so many blog buddies are stopping by. Can't tell you how much I appreciate the prayers, friendship and support.
Wishes for a sweet Thursday!
