Going to a birthday celebration will be about a two hour commute...

I am going to my uncle's birthday celebration tonight. It starts at seven. Because my husband works till seven I will have to get there on my own and he will come after. That means to get to the restaurant I will have to walk about a half hour to the train, take the train, then transfer to a bus and two more buses after that, and then walk. It's gonna be about a two hour commute but I am used to it. My mom told me I can come with them but I'd still have to get to their house first, which will probably take around fifty minutes. She wants to take an Uber and my uncle wants her to pick him and his wife up. That means there will be five people squished into the Uber car. I can't do that. It will make me anxious. Plus, with my car anxiety/panic issue when it comes to getting in the car with other drivers, I told her I am not gonna go with them. She said they will drive there instead. I would maybe take her up on that offer if dad drives, but it's best if they Uber. This way my dad doesn't have to worry about looking for parking and he can drink. I don't mind taking all these buses. Done it endless times. Though it will be a high of 78 degrees today, so by the time I get to the train from my house I will probably be soaked with sweat. My parents will think I am nuts going on my own when I can go with them. And maybe I am. If only this car anxiety/panic thing wasn't something I was experiencing these days.

Ubers are all different kinds of cars. My brother takes ubers to get to work and alot of times, its big cars and vans that get him. Plus i think you put in how many people are to be picked up, but not sure on that one.. Hope its least nice out to do all that walking.
