SoCS – Barely Made it Today

Surprisingly, today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to us by Dan Antion, giving Linda a break while she attends a Writer’s Festival.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ent” “ten” “net.” Use one, use two or use all three (bonus points for using two, double-bonus points for using all three). As Linda would say, use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Tomorrow I fly back to North Carolina. I will leave my daughter’s house around ten in the morning to head to the airport. It may just be the two of us since my granddaughter has come down with a cold and cough today.

Today we went to breakfast at McDonald’s (I had pancakes), then we ventured on to Target to play with the toys. Unfortunately while we were there I started to feel a little woozy which is not good the day before I fly. I took some Dramamine at the store and laid down a bit when we got home. I think it must have been brought on by a sudden change in the pressure due to a storm brewing overhead. I felt better in the afternoon after it rained for a while.

I may need to break down and call an ENT doctor when I get back home. Living in fear of vertigo when I travel is no fun. I will take more Dramamine tonight before I go to bed and more before I board the airplane tomorrow.

This trip has been difficult in some ways, and so rewarding and fulfilling in others. The net result from my daughter’s surgery has been so positive which makes it easier to go back home knowing she is back on the road to recovery.

I will miss them all so much, and I know tomorrow will be difficult. That’s what love is.

  1. I’m sorry Maggie that the dizziness is happening. Dramamine is tough because it knocks you out. Hoping tomorrow you feel much better and travel is easy. We both know the separation sadness, but thankfully there will be many more visits.

    1. Everything went well. Leaving this time was so hard after being there for a month. I am just so thankful it all worked out the way it did.


  2. I sympathise with your vertigo. I have never been able to control mine that well, and it is beginning to seriously limit certain activities.
    Give yourself a day to readjust, and to recover from the travelling.
    I find that long journeys are so tiring now. The days when the excitement of going somewhere overruled the tedium of travel are long gone for me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Pete, I remember that you also suffer from vertigo. It is such an unnerving thing. I can at least feel the symptoms early enough and the meclizine (Dramamine) does seem to help although it makes me very lethargic. My flight was uneventful so I am thankful.

  3. Thanks for joining us, Maggie. I hope you feel better for your flight. You did a nice job snagging the bonus points, and an even nice job being a good mom. I’m so glad your daughter is doing better.
