Betta Dilemma

Hey all!
I have a bit of a situation. I dropped the 2gal jar I was keeping Flora, one of my girls in, shattering it. So, now Flora is in a 1 gal jar. Here's the thing: a three day weekend is coming up. There's no heater in the 1 gal and I usually change the water everyday. Do you think it would be worse to leave her in the 1 gal over the weekend, or bring her home from college with me? On the one hand, no heat because I'm not here to adjust the temperature of the room and I'm worried about ammonia spikes. On the other hand, transporting her anywhere really stresses her out and she ends up getting listless. I'm not sure which one would be more stressful for her. Opinions?

If it were me I would do a water change right before you leave and wrap her tank in a blanket to keep some heat in. I know how hard transporting a fish is on it. But that's just me.
