NaBloPoMo - Day 19

Tomorrow I am going on a field trip with Cassie. A field trip that will take pretty much the entire day. A field trip to caves. In paperwork that came home today it states:

  • Dress for the weather and plan on possibly getting dirty in the cave. wear old shoes that are suitable for climbing (have i mentioned that my ankle isn't 100% better yet?)
  • The temp in the cave is 50 degrees. caves are equipped with steps and tour will be led by knowledgeable guide.
  • Bring a flashlight with your mane on it. Check the batteries
Earlier this week there was a note that came home stating that if you had a fear of heights or small spaces, you may want to reconsider chaperoning. What the hell am I getting myself into??

I'm not a fan of heights and I've already told Cassie's physical therapist (who is coming along to help me) that if there are any small areas, she is going with Cassie in those areas. The main reason that I'm going is because Cassie is going to need help manipulating herself to even be able to participate. However, I still find myself asking what I'm getting myself into.

I've been told that there are steep stairs, there were rumors about ladders, and then there is the getting dirty going through caves. I'm going to bring my it across my body and make sure to keep it buckled shut when not using it. Hopefully I can get some good pictures. And hopefully we make it back in one piece.

So to recap....heights, small spaces, and darkness. Why don't we just shove me in a coffin and hang me from a cliff. Andy's words of advise for me is to make sure to wrap my ankle. Yeah, because that is my biggest worry.

Pray for me!

I'm packing my anti-anxiety meds in my camera case for safe and close keeping.
