On Thursday at 9 am my children and I board a plane to visit with my parents for a week. The problem is snow, or the forecast of snow, 12-18 inches of it. I’m doing everything I can to try and make things go smoothly: take dog to kennel early, check in with snow plow friend and make sure he knows I need to leave at 5 am Thursday, get the car checked out today for fluids, tire pressure etc. I know that it will be a day of delays but if we can just travel safely I’ll be happy. I am a nervous flyer and you really can’t be with kids. I put on the everything-is-all-set-just-fine face but really my belly aches and I’m taking deep cleansing breaths. Keep me in your thoughts.
