Today's theme for Heads or Tails Tuesday is "Reason". Perhaps we should start with the reason I'm blogging before 8 am today. It's 7:37 in the morning, which is way too early for me to be up and showered, as evidenced by my semi-upset stomach. Urgh. I figured out long ago that I'm a night owl. No matter how many years I worked at jobs that got me up at 6, it will never be okay for my body to get up before 8.
Today I'm flying to St. Louis to visit my Dad and sister. I am very excited, but have also been feeling more apprehensive than I usually do about traveling. For some reason, I'm having a harder time leaving Sam than I usually do, even though he's been sort of a pain (tantrum city) the last few days.
This morning I realized a possible reason for the way I'm feeling. I'm traveling, which is not anything new. However, today I'm traveling ALONE. I started thinking, and I can't remember the last time I flew anywhere alone. I know when I was 18 I flew to England by myself for my study abroad. There may have been at least once since then that I flew to visit family by myself. But for my entire life, I've always traveled WITH someone. Either my sister, my husband, a friend, or my son. This may only be the 3rd or 4th time I've flown by myself, and I don't even remember the last time.
Why that would freak me out I have no idea. But it could be one subconscious reason that I'm feeling really antsy today! So, keep me in your thoughts today! I'm taking my laptop and since I'm going solo - no Sam - I will be able to post a little bit, plus I have some awesome guest posts lined up!
