Why is it?

Why is it when I was in my twenties I LOVED to travel, LOVED to fly, LOVED to see far away places and now that I am in my thirties I stress about EVERYTHING!?! I never had fear of flying before and suddenly I am set to fly to Park City, Utah on Thursday and all I can think about is ALL the things that can go wrong!!! I haven't flown since January 2006!! I know they say a plane is the safest way to travel, but why can't I get the images of 9/11 out of my head? I know I will be ok, but I think sometimes when you travel and you leave behind some of your children it makes you stress even more. You see we are heading to Park City for a lacrosse tournament for my oldest son. That means #2 and #3 son's are staying behind. So you let your imagination run away with you...all the things that could go wrong...did I tell the boys how much I love them? Do they know? I am pretty sure I am not the only person that feels this way...I just hope my feelings change in the next 72 hours!

Ok, you are SO not alone!! I used to puffy heart airports and flying and travel...oooh, how exciting--I can't wait to leave..type of thing.

Now, I swear I hyperventilate every time I am about to board the airplane. (and mind you, I try to never fly. So this is like the one time a year I HAVE to fly to visit McDaddy's family)

I hate it!

I think it's because we have kids we have more to protect, so much to lose, etc.

That all said, I really hope your trip goes well! Give us an update when you return!

Thanks for the words of encouragement! Thankfully we survived and so did my other boys who didn't get to go. They had fun and we had fun! Thankfully!!!
