Default At airport and terrified lol

Well, its 7.40am, hubby has gone to drop animals at the cargo centre and I'm sat in the hotel room waiting for him to come back so we can go check in at T1. To say im cr*pping myself is a slight understatement. yesterday was a blurr, shppers arrived and my house was emptied - most stuff went in but had to leave a fewbits behind - oh well!!

Goodbyes were AWFUL - its not been easy anyway as my mum and sister have been really stroppy with me for going - my Mum has been VERY upset about the whole thing and i really think she thought if she cried enough over the last few weeks I would change my mind. I have hardly seen her as she has been avoiding me like the plague and when I have seen here she has burst into tears - its been very hard. Myself and hubby have coped pretty much on our own, no help from either side of our family at all. ( not even little stuff on the last day like milk or help cleaning etc). yesterday I felt like the worst person on earth and it made it so much harde to do what we are doing

So im sat here at the airport - my tummy is doing a million summersaults my legs wobble when i stand up and i feel like running away
Luckily im sure I have read posts on here where people have felt last minute panic as they are getting ready to fly over - we have a very long day ahead of us with 2 kids and 4 animals - so for now i'll sign off and hopefully see you all at the other side - and I'll be feeling much better.

Hi
Bless you!!!!
How awful of them to be so negative.....you will get through this...it is after all YOUR life and no good sitting in an old folks home in your old age here wishing you had made the move. Tell them to look forward to the holidays they can have with you.
Wishing you all the very best....have a drink on the plane...for medicinal purposes of course

Good luck!!

What a shame for you that your family couldn't be supportive of your decision. I am sure you will feel better when you get there.

Aww this is such a personel post showing such insight to how you are feeling, i admire you for that, family can be a nightmare sometimes, i am hoping to be on the 26th oct flight and yesterday my mum was telling me how ill my nan is and she thinks shes got a dodgy heart needless to say i felt awful and guilty for going. I am sure when you get there and settle you will feel so much better....just think of the great holidays your family can have with you!

big hugs Julie

Good luck to you, hope everything goes well. As others have said you have to live your life & they can visit, which i'm sure they will. I will be in the same boat on 26th oct & will be equally as nervous having my dog on the same flight.
