I am on Ativan now. :) for those who don't know what Ativan is, it is an anti-anxiety med that promptly knocks Monica out. I figure I have 30 minutes tops before I am out like a light.
I am having butterflies, spazzing over the littlest things, I think I've had a semi-asthma attack at least once, or maybe it was hyperventilating, since I have exercise-induced asthma... Anyway, I'm spazzing out over how much luggage we seem to be accumulating to go with us. Know what the root word of luggage is?
Come on, it's not that hard...
That's right, folks, it's 'LUG'. Congratulations, you get a cookie. Yes, I get sarcastic when anxious.
I am really excited about going, but so anxious about the actual traveling part. I don't care about the 2 hour flight from Little Rock to MSP, I don't care about the 12 hour flight from MSP to Tokyo...I don't even care about that last little stretch of about 3 or 4 hours from Tokyo to Beijing...it's the packing that is getting me. THAT is what is spazzing me out. Sad, huh?
I have decided that I fully intend to write a book called 'How to Entertain Yourself on a 12+ Hour Flight'. As I come up with ideas I will write them down in my handy-dandy Buddha notebook Kim bought me like a year ago and then probably post them on here. For my own entertainment as much as anything.
1. Pre-write your blog entries.
Yeah, not really, but hey...it's a start. Right up there with read, poke Mom until she threatens to kill me, stare at the person beside me, and sleep. : )
1 more day...oh God, it's really happening....
