Lessons from the Road 2015 #1 Wear your glasses
So, it is my busy travel season and I am on the road from now until the end of April. This trip started a little rocky, rain in Fairbanks in February. The runways were closed until they could break and scrape off the ice . My first flight was 3 hours delayed, which means I missed all my connections. I was re-routed and had to overnight in LA.
This was really no problem. After last year, I have learned to carry my makeup and hairbrush in my purse, and have a change of clothes in my carry-on. No worries. I got to the hotel, had a nice sleep and was up early to shower, change and get back to the airport 11 hours later. I grabbed the hotel's complimentary shampoo and cream rinse and shower gel. I washed my hair and then added the conditioner..but it felt really funny and wouldn't rinse out of my hair. I got out of the shower and grabbed my reading glasses, I had just put a whole (little) bottle of body lotion on my hair, thinking it was conditioner. I re-washed, used the correct conditioner and got out of the shower.
So that wasn't a big problem, but it did teach me that with my older eyes, I need to use my glasses for those tiny bottles of hotel toiletries.
I am headed home. I'm home for a day and then headed to Colorado and Wyoming. I'll get to stop and have dinner with my friend Suzanne (see her blog here) on my way through. So, when I get really tired and whiny about all my travel in the next couple of months, I have to remember the little extras I get because of it.
