I head for the airport in 5 hours. I’m packed and ready, fed my fish, watered my plants, gave my girlfriend the key to my apartment so she could keep feeding my fish. She’ll pick up the news papers and stuff.
I’ve got the tickets, the gum, the book, the meds, the Ipod with cricket noises and other soothing stuff. I’m armed with all the tips and hints you have all given me. Thank you again for all that.
I’m keeping it together so far but feeling very shaky. I’ve been out of body off and on all morning.
My sis and Mom called they are safely at Huntington beach just two hours out of San Diego and it’s light traffic, and a cool sunny day. So less worries there.
I’m heading out pretty soon to get to my Dad’s, have some lunch and take the train to the airport with my family. Nerves a bit on edge, but working on keeping calm.
I’m working on breathing calm and not letting this get to me. So far, I’m Ok… sort of. I’ll make it. Besides, if I do this… I might just overcome my fear of flying… then who knows how much life might change.
What if I became a globe trotter… dashing to Milan to practice my cat walk?
Thank you all for the suggestions. Wow, my first airplane ride EVER. I can do this.
