In 48 Hours...

...I will be on an airplane to Las Vegas. Hopefully, we will safely be up in the air on a smooth and easy flight. I pray that my Valium will be working and that I will be oblivious to the fact that I am on a plane, 30,000 feet in the air (or however high those darn things fly). I have my list of "airplane accessories" to help me through the flight:

- A good book, Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella (a funny, light read)
- Crossword puzzles - not too hard, not too easy
- A good, trashy magazine like US Weekly
- A copy of Simple Scrapbooks
- A blank notebook in which I can write my ideas and thoughts (if I'm feeling anxious, things I want to see in LV, pictures I want to take, etc.)

I'll probably write one more time before we leave. I'm really trying to control my anxiety. It's hard, but I've done it before...and I was successful.

You have done the right things to prepare for your flight: meds and distractions. A way of life in the 21st century.
I think you will be successful with the coping devices you have listed. I also do not like to fly and try to distract myself and block negative thoughts. I have had some success.
I doubt that your mother and I will ever go to Europe. I'll miss a lot, but the positive view is that the inheritance will be much bigger!

Love, Paw
