Arrival in Scotland!
For the first time in crossing the pond, I believe I slept. I've attempted it but have never had the luck to achieve this highly desirable, simple act, of traveling. Our flight began from San Francisco with just under a two hour layover in Chicago then a continuing flight to Edinburgh with an arrival time of 7:35 am. After trying melatonin in a variety of ways (didn't help either of us sleep), valerian root (didn't quite do the trick), OTC sleep aid / generic version of Simply Sleep (which I believe would have worked but Tim choose the cheap brand) the week prior to our departure, I settled with two glasses of red wine before and during dinner, followed by Calms Forte (two tablets), then thought of every relaxing thought I could.
What did I think of? This silly ditty and I struggled to remember the lyrics till I talked myself out of mulling it over and over.....
