Ok AP family I am laying here taking a break from packing for tomorrows trip (yes I am a last minute person) and I am sooo nervous I just wish I could snap my fingers and be there. I know I can do this but the "negative thinking" won't let me calm down. I wish we were at least driving an RV so I could lay down if I don't feel good. I will try to log on tomorrow if there is any service in the areas we drive thru, and I'm going to be posting pics should we see something interesting you can follow me on Twitter if you like (hope I'm allowed to say that) my screen name is nellebutter there too- that's where I will be posting my pics. Hope fully it will keep my mind off of being anxious.

Nelle,
 
I do wish you all the best, that the trip will be easier than you are expecting, that you will be peaceful and especially that you will have some fun while you are gone.  Know that all the thoughts and prayers  and best wishes from all of us here are going with you.  Please let us all know how things turned out.  You can do this, have some faith in yourself and remember we are all cheering for you.  Hugs!

Junebug & Allestaria,
Thanks so much guys for your encouragement. We haven't left yet and I am sitting here still in tears because I just had a panic attack. Well at least everyone who didn't know my issues knows now. Now I don't have to worry about holding it in because everyone might think I'm crazy. I love my stepmom so much she helped explain it to everyone. Thank God for her and the fact that she's right up the street. I wish she were going with us but I can do this.
This too shall pass...

"On the Road Again"  Just go with it sweetie and let the road take you to a happy place.  Have fun. Picture yourself having fun.
 
Happy Trails to you,

Hi Nelle,

I was wondering how your trip is going? Hope things have been positive and fun.
What a wonderful stepmom to explain things. Its always very hard to try to explain this to others. I am often finding myself explaining to
family that just don't understand! Your one lucky person!

Allestaria, everything is going good thanks for asking. Its nice here in Alabama. Yes I totally appreciate my stepmom for explaining things. That ride down here was a bit much although it turned out to be 2 hours shorter.we haven't done much yet still relaxing.

On the way back home, Allestaria if I can do 14hrs. than you can definetly do 45 mins. just remember what you told me keep in mind why you are going- so you can see your beautiful new nephew. Kitt although I didnt relax much i was able to see my mom so thats all that matters just wish we could have stayed longer.
