4 days out

Well the clock is ticking down and today I am actually too tired and have too much on my mind to think about it. I will be glad when Thursday AM get her and we are ready to load up in the car and head out.

You know what it is like getting ready for any trip...stressful! It will all work out though and we will have everything. If we don't we can buy it at a Wal-Mart.

I am just sitting here chugging my water. When you have to drink 2 gallons you are almost constantly taking sips it seems or sometimes I just have dedicated chug session every 15-30 minutes.

This afternoon on the agenda is a fresh painting on the toes and a fill of the nails then home to pack the girls clothes then my clothes after they go to bed. Tomorrow I am off work so it will be grocery shopping and food prep. Yes, I have to get groceries BEFORE I leave town to take with me for my food as well as for my kids and hubby. We are non-stop travelers except to pee. We snack and drink in the car. We will be stopping during lunch time tomorrow to visit my sister for a short bit then back on the road to Nashville.

I hope to make a brief post tomorrow then that will be it before I post the pictures on Sunday.

Thanks again for all of the comments and support and well wishes. I can't thank you enough.

Remember when you stand on that stage that you are not there to be judged and it doesn't matter if you are 1st, 5th or 9th place. You are there because you deserve to be there. You are there to show the judges what you HAVE accomplished...your goal.. and you absolutely deserve to be standing up there. I hope you stand on that stage with your head up high and a smile that lights the room because you have so much to be happy about. You have encouraged so many to do better, for themselves and for nobody else and to think that nothing is out of reach. The contest isn't about being on the stage, it's about the journey it takes to get there and you Dawn are there. Have a wonderful stage celebration!
