Tonight I will be hopping on a red eye and heading home. I'm looking forward to going home, but absolutely dreading the overnight flight. I'm worried about not being able to sleep on the plane, and I have no doubt that this anxiety lend to a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I wouldn't be stressed about sleeping on the flight because I would
just rest when I got home. I won't have that opportunity tomorrow
because I am anticipating an extremely active day. Tomorrow we are going
to the World War II weekend in Pennsylvania, an event that Robby has
been anticipating for months.
Robby and Scott are picking
me up at the airport when I land (6 am) and we will immediately start
driving North. My Mom is going to meet us en route for breakfast and to
transfer Timmy back into our care. We will then continue up to the
festival, where we will spend the day looking at planes, tanks and all
things World War II related.
Going through the World War
II festival is exhausting under the best circumstances. The prospect of
taking the kids when I'm sleep deprived is unnerving. Hence the reason
I'm anxious about catching some sleep on the plane.
Any tips from more experienced midnight fliers?
