I don't love flying either--but I like going places so ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Tongue

Meditating is a great idea Thumbsup I also do some yoga beforehand, sometimes even at the airport before the flight. Bring lots of things to do to take your mind off flying. Listening to music helps and watching a movie. And a drink ain't a bad idea either Wink

My sister has a friend who is a pilot and he said turbulence is no big deal if you are a pilot--even though it feels like "Fuuuuuck meeeeeee" as a passenger. Since we grew up around boats (including living on one every year for three months at a time during my growing up years), he said plane turbulence was no different for a pilot than when my dad would hit swells on our boat when we'd be traveling around via boat to various islands. Anyway, that made me feel a lot better.

I'm sure you'll have a great trip! Happy travels! Smile

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Took pretty much all day off yesterday because my sprinkler system was flooding my backyard since it sprung a leak somewhere. The workmen were here all day yesterday, fixing a myriad of things--including my sprinkler system. So I thought, yay, all is taken care of, so no more flooding. Then, this am, I take my dog out to pee and one of the sprinklers is fucked and flooding again Weeping

Do you have noise-cancelling headphones? I used to travel quite a bit for business, and I discovered that they really reduced stress from the noise of the engines.

This actually helped me a lot, as I bloody hate being on planes. I stuck my headphones in and shut my eyes for 2 hours, and bosh I was fine. Only spazzed out a little bit due to some minor turbulence, but otherwise I was like 90% better than I normally am on flights Smile

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
So went out to breakfast with my bf. Ordered oatmeal-asked for it to be made with water 'cause vegan. Waitress said oh we only make it with water. Then my oatmeal shows up with a huge ass pat of butter floating in the middle of it and it was under the "healthy choice" section. Um do you think if I asked for it with no milk that I'd want a huge ass pat of butter in it? Wtf Hobo and the only topping it came with was raisins and it was watered down like fuck. So a butter patty floating with raisins in severely watered down oatmeal. Grossest oatmeal ever. Anyway, I try and roll with shit, so I fished out the butter chunk and threw in the raisins and ate a few bites. My bf enjoyed his breakfast though Tongue

Butter on oatmeal? Consider

I don't think I've ever seen or heard of that before. I never would have considered buttering oatmeal... it sounds disgusting.

Me either which is why I didn't say "Don't put in any butter chunks." lol: The butter chunk was huge too. It was like a small ice cream sized scoop of a butter chunk. Tongue I did the best I could to scoop it out and eat around it but the oatmeal was just ew and there was no saving it. I went to a smoothie shop after, and I'm enjoying a yummy smoothie now with no butter chunks Laugh out load

It's hot as balls outside. I'm sweating just sitting in my car. Hot yoga outside anyone? Cool
