Dead on my Feet!

Last night's train ride was... eventful. There were a free tears, a few screams and one nauseous Mommy. The rocking of the train disoriented me for a good hour but after I got used to the constant swaying and a nice warm Sierra Mist, I was good to go.

Too bad my newly refreshed laptop wasn't!

I'd brought a whole shlew of DVDs to play, but apparently you need a DVD decoder to play DVDs. So my whole night of entertainment was out the window and the rocking was too much for me to read, play solitaire or think straight.

So I spent 8+ hours doing nothing but watch my daughter sleep. Now, don't get me wrong, watching my daughter sleep is a blissful event, but eight hours of it can get pretty boring.

Especially in a dark train car that is so silent you can hear almost anything.

But overall it was fun and an experience I'm glad I had. But with only three hours of sleep in the last two days, I'm bone weary tired and longing for a hot bath and a nice long snooze NEXT to my daughter.

UGH, I did that same exact thing once (thinking the laptop could play movies) then I went and spent $100 on a portable DVD player. The best $ spent. We use it TON! Tommy even takes it in his room sometimes!

Glad you got there safely!

I rode a night train from Italy to Germany once. It was too cramped to sleep. So we cabin passengers spent 8 exhausting hours staring at each other in silence.I thought train rides were supposed to be cool like they seems to be in old movies. Guess not. I'm sorry to hear your had train sickness!! that sound terrible!
