I am on the plane ready for take off after a very teary-eyed see you later to Jim.
As I was preparing for this trip I was wondering how it was going to go without seeing Berkley for so long, because he is my little snuggle bunny and I would have to depend on others to take care of him. But when it came time to kiss him goodbye, I was able to do so without getting teary-eyed.
I thought I would be OK kissing Jim goodbye, because I knew he would be able to take care of himself and be fine without me.
That just wasn’t the case. I had a very had time with it. I just couldn’t let him go. I just kept hanging on to him and hanging on. I didn’t want to let go. Then I got this feeling in my chest that I don’t think I have ever felt before. It took me a while to realize it was anxiety/fear. I tried to hold it together the best that I could, but after I headed around the corner to security I knew I couldn’t hold the tears back. So I go through security like a lost women without her soul mate with tears streaming down my face. Luckily the sweet women who checked my ticket had a few tissues for me.
After I found my gate and got seated, I called Jim and not long after our conversation started he had a smile on my face. I’m one lucky woman to have someone as awesome as him. Thank you, Babydoll! I love you.
I made it through my first big city metro experience. It was pretty nerve racking for this small town girl. I somehow managed to board the metro headed in the right direction and made all the right connections. I was counting my blessings. Thank you Kara!
OMG the leg room on a train is amazing! This is the way to travel. Oh… and the seats with 6 inches of blissful cushion. I feel like a queen.
