I am so excited to hear your going to the beach. You will soak up the sun and the warm breeze. I envy you.
If your traveling the freeway or and state highway just stop at every way stop rest. I love to go to the way-stop rests and see all the people from out of town after I make my mad dash for ladies room. I fugure they all really stopped for the bathroom too, so you are in good company.
It is possible to tangle yourself up in a stress knot all by yourself. “If this happens, then that might happen and then we’re all up the creek!” Most of these things never happen, so why waste all that energy worrying needlessly?
Give stress thought-trains the red light and stop them in their tracks. Okay so it might go wrong – how likely is that, and what can you do to prevent it?
Have a wonderful time and know we are right here for you. You will do well.

I think it pays to remember that no-one really notices anyone but themselves. Not that we are selfish, just well, we don't judge others nearly as harshly as we do ourselves. Most likely no-one will notice if you have tummy problems unless you spell it out (I know my family doesn't have a clue about my IBS!!).
I really hope you enjoy family and beach time. Tell those "what ifs" to go to tahiti for a few days, or send them to me and I'll give them what for! lol. You have fun now.
