Waking Up

When my parents seperated while I was in school, I would spent time at both of their residences. When I woke up in the morning, as I was drifting back of reality, at some point during that loading process, where I was would be loaded back into memory, and I'd expect to see a certain room when I opened my eyes. On rare occasion, I would remember incorrectly, and be mildly surprised as I spent a few moments trying to figure out where I was. I find that's happening to me a lot more these days. I frequently find myself waking up in a nondescript and utterly uniform Marriot hotel room, with no indication of what timezone, let alone town, I am in. It can take me several seconds to remember where I am, what I'm doing, and what time I'm supposed to be where.

Today I remembered I am in Chicago. Technically Lake Forest, and technically I woke up in Lincolnshire, but for most people's purposes, I am in Chicago, working once more at Grainger. I remember the flight from PVD to ORD yesterday was the roughest commute I've had. I don't know if the plane was just in really bad shape or the pilot was a trainee, but I'd swear she was trying to carve her initials into the runway when we landed. The flight crew couldn't even turn off the "Fasten Seatbelts" light once we were on the tarmac.

Little else of notice to report. Back to automating the creation and management of DTS Packages...

I've had that experience many times. I change my sleeping location very often and sometimes it throws me a little. I usually kind of like it though. On another note, The flight crew never shuts off the fasten seatbelt light until the plane is docked when I fly. *Hug*
