I'm gonna break down and fly. My daughter said I should just get over it and book a flight so I did. I've been going back and forth for over a week and the bottom line is: I don't want to make the long drive by myself, and the train fare was as much one way (with a room) as it costs to fly round trip first class with Delta. It's really a no brainer! Even though I'm already stressing the flying part so much that my stomach hurts. I can't help it. I'm scared to death of flying. But I guess not to the point that it's going to keep me from going home for a week.
The train fare floored me. I could have just gone with a regular ticket but I would have been in that one seat for almost 24 hours. No way! So I checked out getting a room. Add $500 plus on top of the $300 something ticket...one way! No way!
So, I leave the end of the month. I think, hope a change will do me good. I've been so emotional lately.
