I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. Okay, it’s really not a secret at all, but I’m gonna bring it up anyway…
Flying makes me EXTREMELY anxious.
Now, not all flying makes me anxious; for example, I was totally fine on all of our recent flights to and from Mexico, but I was also not flying alone and I knew I had a guaranteed seat. I’m cool with that.
However, if you’ve been reading along for a while, you know that I’ve encountered a few travel snafus along the way when flying for blog conferences. Remember that trip to Chicago? Oh man, that one really did a number on me.
But honestly, I can’t really complain. My good friend Scott, who works for Southwest, is doing me a huge favor by helping me out with my travel arrangements again for my upcoming trip to Colorado (hopefully he’ll be there to greet me with some Starbucks again!).
I spent some time talking with him this morning and it sounds like I’m going to be stopping in four different airports on my way out there. Yes, four. That makes me a tad nervous. Hopefully they’ll be serving mimosas on my flights or something.
I know I’ll be fine once I’m there, but the whole connecting flights things and the possibility of missing one and being stranded in an airport totally freaks me out. Nonetheless, I’m super psyched to be heading out west for the Blend Retreat, and definitely looking forward to rooming with these lovely ladies…just as long as I make it there in one piece, with all of my stuff. Keeping my fingers crossed!
As anticipated, today’s breakfast was a yummy one.
I cooked up an egg white omelet and stuffed it with lots of diced red peppers, onions, and spinach. I even went ketchup-free on this one today…crazy.
On the side, I enjoyed another delicious slice of mystery bread.
Which, I promise, has a recipe that’s headed your way…tomorrow.
Fast-forward a few hours and before I knew it, it was already time for lunch. Today was one of those lunch days when you’re really sad that the amazing thing that was just sitting in front of you has already disappeared.
I put together an awesome salad of leftovers today, complete with:
- bread and butter pickles
- leftover grilled chicken
- leftover roasted asparagus
- balsamic vinaigrette dressing
Strawberries + chicken in salad = always a favorite combo.
This evening, I’m headed back to work for a short shift which I’m sort of bummed about because I’m missing out on our team’s first softball practice. The season already starts up in a couple weeks…
Looks like I’d better dust of that catcher’s helmet!
Question for the Afternoon:
Does flying and/or any sort of traveling make you anxious/nervous? Do you have any airport horror stories like mine?
