I'm really filled with mixed emotions right now. I'm going to Texas, that annual trek I make either by plane or car. This time it's plane, so quite naturally, I'm journey proud (that is to say, wake up early, can't go to sleep at nig.ht). Whenever I have to fly anymore I just get all . . . Queasy inside. My stomach becomes this other worldly thing and I am not proud to say, I'm a white knuckle flyer. Why does it matter, because my daddy was a pilot!!
So I'll be leaving Fort Wayne at like 3:30 am to drive to the Indianapolis airport and be there by 5 for a 6:45am flight. I connect in Kansas City, which I've never done, then on to Dallas Fort Worth! I'll be taking care of my 81 year old mother while my sisters get a vacation break. I'm excited. I've talked to my therapist and have food plans (to stay within parameters). I just don't want to leave my granddaughter.
Elia is 3 and has had many issues since her birth. She was legally blind, had to have an eye operation. She's living here now with my daughter. I'm caring for her every day. I just have to remember this isn't a lifetime - it's 8 days!! She'll be fine and I plan to skype with my family as much as possible!!
I guess the best thing about all of this is that I could care less about eating. And my exercise regime is still grinding away (7+ hours last week !!). It's the dread of the unknown. I know I can focus on trusting God. I just hate going . . . and summer wouldn't be complete without going to Texas . . . so off I go!!
I hope to blog again once I get there (with pictures?? we'll see). In the meantime, I'll try to take my OWN advice and "ten mucho cuidado" as that means "take good care". Thanks so much for listening! All the best!
