Getting nervous.......

Mon, 10-27-2008 - 12:15pm
As you know I am going on a cruise, which I am VERY excited about, but it's the plane ride that makes me nervous. I don't know why I am so scared, I have been flying since birth, but I am. I think it's security that gets me. It never fails that I or my bags get the extra search. When I got pulled out for the body search my last trip I asked why me, the cop said "you are so approachable". The problem is, if I make myself unapproachable then I will ring bells and get searched anyway. I'm also going to vent that AF hasn't shown and I'm 12 days late. While it's not unusual for me to be late it will be really crummy if AF shows up now because that will mean I have to fly and cruise with her and, I'm sorry, she is not welcome. Well, thanks for listening, just needed to get that off my mind.

Hi SuZi,



Since we are all storing away in your suitcase you will have plenty of support ;) Really I wish I was.

I think a cruise for all of us would be so much fun!!! It's also flying, every little sound freaks me out! Maybe it's too many shows about plane crashes. I already have my zip lock baggie ready. I never used to be afraid of flying till after my son's twin died. The next trip we took, after that happened, the plane we took was Ryan International. That was my son's name that passed away. It freaked me out and here I am still. Although strangely I still love the taking off part. ??? weird I know.

I do like turbulance too. I don't get why I'm so freaked. I literally will have a panic attack wed morn, and every sound makes me think the plane is either going to fall apart around me or plummet to the earth, but I still like the take off and turb. I must be a freak. I know my DH thinks so too. He just told me when I explained this to him just now.

I leave wed. morn at 7am. It will take 19 hrs total to get there, that includes two layovers. The cruise is 10 nights. But the whole trip takes 14 days. The weirdest thing is that I leave to come home on the 11th from Spain. With all the time changes, plus 2 layovers home, (a total of 21 hrs) I still land on the 11th. It's a mind boggeler.

No she doesn't know. Have you seen the tampax commercial (i think that's the brand), where mother nature visits all the ladies on their vacation. That will be me. She had also decided she wanted to come on our anniversary in may so she showed up 12 days early. I will miss everybody. I'm going to go into withdrawels.
