On every trip home I've ever taken since 1998, the actual travelling portion of the trip has been a complete and total clusterfuck, due to my parents inability to act like adults. (also: bad luck, with things like my pilot not being allowed to fly because he hadn't slept that led to missed connections &c and iced over runways with no equipment on the ground that meant I got to spend the night in the atlanta airport.)

(I remember the trip where my mom wouldn't let me pack an extra book--I'd taken two doorstoppers with me and wanted three--and then I ended up finishing my last book ten minutes into my return flight.

And then we got a flat tire 75 miles from home, and got to wait for 4 hours with nothing to do for entertainment while AAA too their sweet time coming out. Because my mom was So Sure that I wouldn't finish my book.)

So THAT is why I'm a giant ball of stress about getting out to my folks' place on Monday.

Hope the trip goes well and there are no unfortunate incidents.

1. *HUG*
2. Hallelujah, ereader.
3. Take the extra anti-anxiety meds and the knowledge that you get to COME HOME at the end.
4. Leave your fucks by the door and accept that travel will be shitty, and if it isn't? Horray, holiday present!
5. Bring two extra power packs. Just do it.
6. This mantra: "I am not responsible for my parents mental health."
