November 2009

Wow it's November already. I think this year has flown by so quickly because we have been SO busy!

Life just gets more chaotic as I began a Flight without Fear class in late September. Most of you probably don't know this, but I suddenly became afraid of flying in late 1999, and I have good flights and bad flights. I have prescription medication to help with the physical symptoms of anxiety, and I have also gotten into the bad habit of needing a drink on every flight, large or small. I am disgusted at this anxiety and have had just about enough of it.

The class is once a week at Frontier Airlines training facility and is run by the Colorado 99's which is a female aviation pilot organization. I feel extremely blessed to be in a town that offers such a class. In addition to Fronter Airlines crew, a psychologist specializing in anxiety is present every week as well as volunteer former students.

We cover such topics as airplane dynamics, weather, flight crew training, air traffic control and emergency preparedness. We have visited a Frontier Airlines flight hangar and crawled around a whole Airbus while it was in the shop, we went to air traffic control, and we got to do flight simulators.

In addition, the psychologist is working with us on developing anti-anxiety techniques, giving us the "tools" necessary to prevent or calm down from panic attacks, and steer our minds and bodies away from what makes us anxious. I can tell you that these tools really, really help.

On my birthday, November 14th, we take our graduation flight to Salt Lake City for the day. I cannot wait! I feel like this class has wonderfully combined facts about the aviation industry as well as psychological techniques to give you the full picture about the situation (flying is safe) and the means to deal with anxiety (you are safe).

So stay tuned, maybe next month I will have photos of my graduation flight!

Anyway, in addition to hockey games, flying classes, concerts, theatre, lots of stress at work, and OUR ANNIVERSARY, there was snow...

This was on October 10, 2009. It snowed three separate times in October, the last one being a 2-day blizzard dumping 1 foot of snow in our area.

...there were zombies...

The 4th annual Zombie Crawl took place on Oct. 24th in downtown Denver. Over 3,000 zombies showed up at the park and at 6:30 began crawling around the pedestrian 16th Street Mall searching for brains. If you put a big X on your chest, you were a zombie snack, and eventually devoured by a hungry hoard.

OF COURSE I'll be dressing up next year!!

...and of course, when you think of zombies, you immediately think next of weddings...

Jill as a monk at Heather and Derek's wedding

On Thursday, Oct. 29th, our fellow Halloween-loving friends Heather and Derek tied the knot at Heritage Square, a quaint old-time amusement area. In two feet of snow. With costumed guests. And lots of awesome Halloween decorations. The monk robes were a very warm choice.

The most awesome way to present the rings. Look closely!

Derek fashioned the cake topper himself. It rocks.

Gorgeous cake, super yummy too.

...and lastly, we end with dinosaurs...
