I have fixed the how-do-I-get-up-in-the-morning-when-Mark-is-traveling problem. I bought a new Sangean RCR-5 Digital AM/FM Clock Radio with a Sangean Pillow Speaker – #PS-100 – D/S (I love them both) and now, I hear the alarm, no matter what side I sleep on! I don’t have the problem of blasting my good ear with noise that my deaf ear can’t hear anyway 🙂 I had to buy a new clock radio because my old one did not have a headphone jack, so I couldn’t just get the pillow speaker.
Now that I’ve fixed that problem, number 2 is now number 1. That’s the alarm-when-I-travel problem. If anyone knows of a vibrating watch that works (I bought one that doesn’t), where the alarm keeps going until you shut it off (I bought one where it vibrates once and shuts off), let me know. I could buy another pillow speaker for travel, and assume every clock radio wherever I go in the world will have a headphone jack. I prefer not to make that assumption.
