When I wrote this goal I had not flown in nearly 10 years for health reasons. My Aunt lives in the Portland area and I thought Portland would be a good destination but flying again was really the goal. I have since flown to Denver (twice); Salt Lake; Butte, MT; Vancouver, BC; Edmonton, AB and to and from Seattle.
I think flying is back in my regular life experience.
I am sad, I missed my opportunity. For now…..
Well, It’s time to put up or shut up. I just may take this trip very soon. Before school starts. I’m homeschooling my youngest son, going to college myself and my older son is taking a full load in college this year. August 27th will be the starting day of much stress. It’s time.
I may be changing my destination in order to meet family in Seattle. It depends on the news I hear tomorrow. I will still consider this goal achieved because the point is to get on the plane. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
My youngest son has dared me to complete this goal within the next two weeks or else he will be disappointed in me and consider me a coward. Actually the words he used were much more harsh. I’m being accused of lacking body parts I’m not even supposed to have. Hum! All right kid!
I used to fly all the time. I was seriously ill for many years and I am now out of bed and back into life. Have been for almost 3 years. Doc says I can fly, I’m healthy enough. I have to step through the fear. Portland would be a short flight and I need to see my Aunt. I can do this.
