Anxiety

I am roughly 24 hours away from getting on a plane to Vegas. Now don't get me wrong I am extremely excited but I get severe anxiety when I fly. Not flailing crazy lady anxiety but sweaty palms and increased heart rate type of anxiety. I'm just glad it's only an hour and 50 minute flight. Praying that I get an aisle seat (I fly Southwest and there are no assigned seats) because I do not enjoy being stuck in between 2 random people. You would think every time I fly that it's the first time but I would have to say this is approximately the 30th time I have flown. Maybe eventually I will get over the anxiety.

I'm dropping Fishy off today at the vet to be boarded, I hate leaving him but so happy that he will be well taken care of while I'm gone (Emma is going with me). Hopefully I can grab him before he sees the carrier or else I will never get him in there haha. This is what happens when he sees the carrier:

 Haha pray that I keep all my limbs. :)

Well it's time for me to finish packing and clean the house (yes I can't leave the house dirty lol).

Have a great Monday!

  1. I hate leaving my pups at the kennel/pet hotel. Makes me sad. Last time, I even cried :-(

  4. I hate flying. I get really anxious and sometimes get motion sick as well so turbulence is not fun at all! Have you checked in already? You can check in early and that way maybe you can board close to the beginning and get a window seat. Good luck! Have a safe flight!

  7. Bless your heart. I literally have to take Xanax when I fly. I totally get it.

  10. i get like that sometimes when im flying or even jut driving. I guess the feeling of not being in control or out of your comfort zone just causes the anxiety. But praying really helps. Hope you had a safe flight!

  13. Have a fun trip and a safe flight. I can't leave the house dirty either. I'd rather come home from a trip knowing I can just kick off my shoes at the door and walk barefooted while relaxing.

  16. You'll do great! I always just shut my eyes before we even start takeoff and am usually dozed off by the time we're in the air. I'm okay with flying, but takeoffs and landings are the WORST!!

    Have fun in Vegas!!!

  17. Im so not a fan of flying either. I think thats one of the reasons why I haven't flown back home yet because that flight from Virginia to Hawaii was WAY to long! I'll just keep my butt right here where its warm and everyone can come see and deal with that long flight (all of my family is on the east coast)...

  23. Have a great trip. Think about all the good things: family, Disneyland, warm weather. OR stay up really late so you fall asleep on the plane. OR bring your $7 for a drink ;) Hope you have a great spring break!

  24. I don't like getting stuck between two random people either. Your trip's going to be so fun.

    What I'm wondering, is will the house be clean when you get back? ;) :)

  25. Vegas baby! You are going to have a great time. And don't worry you can still pull a slot machine with one arm.

  31. I am travelling in May and we just got word that my husband might be in the field at the same time. We have no idea where to start finding a place to board the puppy if that happens. He has so much anxiety, with new people, places, and when separated from us. Silly pup...

  32. I am the same way about flying. Its not the act itself but more of the stress of getting through the airport! I really dislike it! Lol. Wishing you safe travels my friend! :)
