I've no problem with flying... Have done enough of it in my life and I travel rather well. But what bothers me the most are the things I can't control; Are the flights on time? What's the weather in Chicago? Really, a two-hour layover? But the thing that can cause the biggest problem happens even before you leave home.

PACKING! What to take!! Should I underpack, to leave room for all the gifts I'll need to bring back? Such an assumption! What to do, what to do?

Ok, ok... Just phoned the airline and my first flight is on time! Back to PACKING, agghhh...
