Sleep schedule

Was exhausted and groggy all day at work yesterday despite getting more sleep than usual the night before; almost turned around and went home when my train arrived in SF, but decided after a two-hour trip to get there, I might as well try working. I got some stuff done, but not a lot.

So when this morning I woke up exhausted and groggy, I decided to stay home from work and try to get some rest.

Eventually, late in the afternoon, I took a nap—and didn't wake up until three hours later.

So now I'm up way too late but I'm wide awake.

And I have to be in San Francisco at 8:30 in the morning for an all-day meeting.

And my car's Check Engine light is still on, but I'm going to drive to work anyway, 'cause I can't face the idea of leaving home at 6:30 to make it to the meeting by train.

And my flight on Thursday is at 8:45 a.m., so I'll need to get up early then, too, and of course I'll be flying to Madison, a two-hour time shift.

All of which is to say that I suspect my sleep schedule is going to be out of whack for the next while. But maybe I'll sleep on the plane.

    Suggest you bring whatever sleeping pills work for you, because it’s hard enough catching sleep at a con. If you find yourself with some time in a quiet dark room when you actually *could* sleep, but you’re lying awake, well that’s just silly so plan ahead and pop a pill.

    I wouldn’t worry _too_ much about the check engine light. Often, those come on just to do some kind of scheduled maintenance check at a repair station. Happened to us recently with our Saturn (I don’t know what kind of car you have though).

    On my Civic, it did indicate a real problem with the emission control system (more generally, an indicator that the control system no longer believes that it has control). Nicely enough, it was a known issue with one particular engine part which got replaced for free.
