We are leaving for New York tomorrow morning. The day before is always a busy day, but today seems busier than usual. I often wonder why I need to do laundry in the middle of thinking which pair of pants will fit around my tummy. I was a little surprised when I tried on pants the other day. The biggy size I always take to try on were very baggy this time. I ended up getting into a size 38 dress pants. I still think the manufacturer erred in sizing the pants correctly. I have only lost a few pounds, although, it could be my fat has gotten softer, thus allowing it to be condensed to fit into a smaller size! Truth is when I look in the mirror, well you know, with nuttin’ on the body looks a wee bit too big!!
So, I have one pair of pants that fit well and now the decision is which other pants in my all black wardrobe will fit and be comfortable to travel in without wrinkling that is caused by being squished into the smaller airline seats, the ones that also have little leg room unless you want to pop an extra $20 each way for one of the better larger seats. These are all tawdry worries/complaints that I should not think about!
The more important is how I will handle traveling, being in a crowded airport and plane where enough germs pass by me to surely make me ill. Being cautious is important. I certainly do not need a cold or virus that will affect my lungs with a nasty cough and increase my wheezing! I suppose it was the thought of travel that prompted me to start coughing and wheezing constantly last night. I guess I need to just do this trip and not think I am going to get sick, even though I will be staying with friends, one of which has just gotten over a virus with deep coughing and flu-like conditions.
The trip will soon be over and I will be back home to garden, wait for my next Avastin/Chemo Treatment and start little repair jobs inside the house, as well as continuing to restore my garden. After thinking about the busyness of the day before travel I realize it isn’t much worse than my daily chores!
