Hello all! How are y’all doing?
I am doing well. Enjoying coffee, nature and this beautiful weather in New England. Not looking forward to going back to work! But I’m looking forward to getting back to Texas! I always miss Texas when I’m gone.
I will say, I am having trouble remembering what the day it is. I’m discombobulated…. but I did see that today is National Writing Day so I decided to write. I wasn’t going to write while I was away but I can pass up today!
What to write about is the question….Maybe my “vacation” so far. It’s not really an actual vacation, I’m helping my grandfather that lives in Massachusetts make the big move to Texas to be closer to family! So this is an exciting but exhausting week for everyone involved! Moving is stressful but when it’s over state lines stress is increased!
We have had some fun this week…
1st let’s begin with a plane ride- I have not flown in 15 years due to fear and anxiety. So I did this! I didn’t worry about this at all!
on the second flight I even sat in the window seat! I even fell asleep for most of the flight! No panic attacks, increased anxiety or hyperventilation. I can do this more often now 🙂
Of course you cant go to Belchertown without going to Cindy’s- best ice cream and hot dogs around! I had the hazelnut ice cream! They have 100 flavors! Super yummy!
Then we took a stroll and a little hike through The Quabin Reservoir- which was beautiful as usual! It was peaceful and a good way to start the trip! It was a little chilly and of course I brought clothes appropriate for warmer weather.
We also had a quick visit with my uncles and princess Kensi- they treated us to lunch, drinks and good laughs!
Early this week I did get sick- extreme fatigue, nausea, chills, and inability to sleep. I had to get my family to stop at one point while driving so I could possibly vomit- just dry heaves happened thankfully. Since I was sick, I didn’t enjoy the good food up in the New England area. I stocked up on water and veggies. Finally by Wednesday I felt better but didn’t want to chance it so I had a salad for lunch. But looking back over the last year, I’ve really cleaned my body out and cook more healthy at home and rarely go out to eat so I think my body was in shock with all this food and a semi- long flight didn’t help and helped to increase fatigue in myself.
As I write this, we are waiting in our hotel waiting for a phone call for the house closing.
In conclusion, we are all ready to get back/to Texas. There is something about living in Texas- I always miss it. Texas is home, a community, and comfortable to me. This trip also symbolizes overcoming fear and anxiety!
I learned a very good lesson on this trip. Let me leave this with you, what things/experiences scare you, give you anxiety…but you would like to complete? What’s holding you back? I let my fear hold me back for 15 years and I missed so much. Don’t let that happen! Face your fears- you will be glad that you did!
