I haven’t flown in months, due to an inner ear infection, and I’m a little anxious about the possibility of painfully popping ears. I’m also a bit apprehensive about being separated from Alex and Simon, who I won’t see until they arrive with Trevor on Friday night by car. Ditto for my gal, from whom I will be apart until she flies in mid August for a week.
And I’m more than a little nervous about being without car or internet for the next five days!!! (The car arrives Friday, with Trevor and the boys. The internet is a long-term non-entity... though I may bike to St Peter's Bay in desperation; I hear Rick's Fish and Chips has Wifi!)
Despite these various trepidations, I’m super excited about spending some time alone, walking the beach with Birdy, sticking our feet/paws in the ocean, and lounging around in the hammock without small people jumping in and overturning everything every five minutes! I’m also looking forward to catching up on a stack of professional reading, and doing some proper studying for the section of the flight exam that I have to re-write!
Ahhh… boarding has started.
Goodbye, Internet, hello, VACATION TIME!!!
