    Less than 24 hours before our trip to Mecca. What do you do to keep your anxiety level at a bearable level?

    Me? I post dumba$$ questions like this.

    I usually pick a few lower-ranking items to do off the ol' "honeydew" list. That keeps me busy--and helps wear me out a bit to get some good shut-eye the night before travel.
    On the down-side, it normally takes the bride two or three weeks after our return to notice what's been done around the house!

    I double check arrangements, pack everything, set out my travel clothes and bag, obsessively double check money, credit cards, etc. The afternoon before we leave I drive our dogs to the boarding kennel. I make sure my TiVo is set to pick up the right shows while I'm gone. Then I go to bed early because we always leave the house at 6:30 for a 9:00 AM flight. Then, I don't sleep much because I'm like a little kid waiting for Santa. I am usually a really sorry and pathetic bundle of nervous anticipation. But, at my age, it's nice to have that much excess energy. To summarize, I exhibit all of the symptoms of an addict gone too long without a fix, who knows they'll get a shot of the good stuff in the morning. I am beyond help.......

    I am a bit OCDC when it comes to the 24hr countdown.
    I'll check and re-check my packing decisions. Double check all paperwork I might need, make sure the bankroll is ready, AGAIN.
    Then I'll start with making sure all windows and doors are secure.
    By that time I am exhausted, then I can sleep with dreams of jackpots dancing in my head.

    Drink to much and pass out early that's my mantra for night before....no nerves beforehand this way

    For some reason it seems like every time I'm in the 24 hour window, things are going crazy with work. So I'm usually up till way too late finishing last minute business stuff. I pack late (the night before,) so this is usually the last thing I do before I try to sleep. Seems like I finally fall asleep and the alarm goes off. This is the only time during the year that I'm actually glad to hear the alarm. Boom- outta bed and ready to go.
    Good luck!
