Fat Camp or Bust

I have this friend - let's call her Stephanie (because that is her name) - who would run herself through a series of panics every morning after the bar.  Out of nowhere -"Where are my keys?", and a few minutes later "where is my wallet" (not like she could lose that brick!  It is the largest wallet I have ever seen!) and then "where's my cell phone?".  I believe all items were consistently an arms-length away - but these moments of panic were still (or at least sound) very entertaining.

I am currently going through something similar - only instead of post-bar panic, I am having pre-FC panic.  What if I forget all of those packets I filled out?  What if something happens to my reservation, and I have nowhere to stay?  What if (God forbid) I forget some key component for my iPod??!??!!  (this would be the biggest issue for me!!)  What if I forget to pack underwear? (I lost my box of underwear for a couple of days after a previous move - and I know how tricky that can get!)  I am certain this all stems from the fact that I honestly have no idea what my life is going to be like for the next 4 weeks.  I am continually asked questions : what is your schedule going to be like?  how many other people are going to be there?  - and I have the same questions!!  I have no idea what is going to be going on with me!  I am excited - I know everything is going to be fine (they aren't going to do anything horrible to me) - - but it still causing me to be a bit of a nutter right now!

I am finishing up laundry and getting things packed today.  My plan is to leave Saturday morning at 5am.  I am hoping the weather cooperates, and I can get the bulk of my drive done on Saturday.  I have to check in at DDFC by 5pm on Sunday, and then I get started early Monday morning. 

I want everyone to keep in touch - keep me up to date on what is happening here at home - so please text, email, or comment often!  Wish me luck!!
