turn  Hello friends!
 
I'm getting ready to go on a plane trip.  The whole thing is going to last less than 48 hours....one of those hurry-the-whole-time-husband's-family affairs. 
 
Exhaustion is already overtaking me ... I have to make an art of getting everything in the smallest possible containers because even a couple of extra ounces can make the difference between feeling pretty ok and being in a lot of pain the whole weekend.  My husband handles my carry-on bag (which has to have my special buckwheat pillow in it, so there's not much room for clothes) but there's still the extra tote I handle, and it has to have a book, snacks, pills, water, creams, back pillow, blah blah blah.  I have to gasp a dozen times before we board, "Where's my purse?".... "Still on your shoulder."  The guy can pack in 20 minutes for anywhere (and dreams of a retirement of endless travelling) and he's hitched to someone for whom leaving town for a couple of days equals major stress.   
 
My most recurring dream is about rushing to catch a plane that's about to take off.  I know it's because I'm not organized and there's a real possibility of my forgetting the most crucial things.
 
Robin, I swear, TODAY I start deep breathing and relaxation like you're always reminding us about!   :-)

It will be fine.

You can only do what you can do.
Try not to get too overwhelmed and enjoy the trip.

Hugs!

Makes me tired just thinking about it Debbie, but I sure hope that you have a good time. I will also be praying for you to have pain free days.

Debbie have a good time! Are you going to Wisconsin? Enjoy yourself and remember
breathe deeply from the diaphrapm! Have fun and relax. I usually forget to pack things
like bras or underwear and we end up shopping when we get there!
