Waiting to Exhhale

I just tried to add it up in my head and I think I have taken approximately 100 flights in my lifetime. Travel is my favourite hobby and they haven't figured out teleporting yet so it's really my only option if I want to go to far off lands. I know that modern air travel is very safe, statistically safer than the driving I do every single day. Got it!

My rational mind is completely aware that what I am about to tell you is ridiculous: I hate flying. It terrifies me every time we take off and again every time we land. It's not just my own flights that terrify me, flights of loved ones also give me the heebie-jeebies. So you can imagine the kind of day I was having yesterday. While The Husband was flying to the west side of the country, my mom was making her way back from the east coast. They were both in the air for the majority of the afternoon, and I spent most of it obsessively checking their flight statuses and national news outlets for signs of plane crashes.

Knowing this, The Husband texted me mere moments after his plane touched down because he knew any delay in hearing from him would cause me massive anxiety. Yes, I am a crazy person. Luckily he has learned to work around it.
