I am really going to Hawaii with my husband this time. He is making the reservations this Friday. His dad is coming up to take care of the kids for us. I will be gone from March 8 thru the 20. Long vacation away from home! We are staying in a resort hotel for a large part of our stay. A regular hotel for 3 days. We will be arriving early and the rest of our party will arrive Sunday or Monday, which is when we will switch hotels.
I am looking at this like our Honeymoon that we never got. We got married during his lunch break and he went back to work. So, it is apropos that our honeymoon would be a work related “vacation”.
Sounds wonderful! You may be asking yourself what do I have to be anxious about! I’m going to be away from my kids and animals. As much as they drive me up the wall, they provide me stability and structure, which I need to feel safe. I am going to be in a new place that is heavily populated (Waikiki is a tourist spot) this is going to shoot my anxiety levels off the charts. But I’m looking at this as an adventure. I’m looking forward to do exploring on my own while my husband is at work. And last but not least… TRAFFIC. I know from experience that Island traffic is horrible. My husband already warned me that traffic is going to be horrible and to make sure I bring my anxiety meds.
I honestly have some trepidation about taking all my meds on the plane. It is just embarrassing because I am on so many and security is going to have to go through them. My daughter commented tonight on how she didn’t want to say anything to me about all of my medications because she didn’t want to hurt my feelings.
So… that is what is going on with me right now.
