Day 27

I'm done!  I can't believe this is already over.  It seems like just yesterday I walked in here freaking out.  Today was a very busy day.

I was determined to beat my time on the stop sign hike for my last time.  I always get hot half way up, so I didn't where a sweatshirt, just a t-shirt, and I almost froze to death until I warmed up.  I had on mittens and a headband/ear cover so I'm sure I looked silly.  I pushed so hard on the bottom part that by the time I got to the big incline I didn't think I had anything left.  I ended up shaving another minute and a half off.  So, if I remember correctly, my first hike was 1 hr 32 min and today it was 1 hr 7 min.

After lunch I had a hair appointment to do something with the mess on top of my head.  Between the chlorine, sun, and 2 inches of roots, I was a mess.  I was nervous about getting my hair done by a new person, but figured it couldn't look any worse.  It ended up looking awesome, I love it.  After that I had an appointment for a manicure.

Dinner was nice because I was thinking about my first dinner here and how different I felt.  It was sad though that so many of my friends were already gone, it just didn't seem right.  I was also sad that I've made a few really good friends in just the last couple of days and now have to leave.  After they showed the DVD for the week, they passed the mic around and I was very emotional again.  I didn't think it would be so hard to leave.  Once graduation was over everyone was getting pictures and saying goodbye.  Next, we started karaoke.  No one will believe this, but I actually got up and sang.  I figured, "What the hell!!", I've sure done harder things than that this month.  I got to sing with Erik (Biggest Loser winner) and I laughed most of the time and wasn't able to sing.  He is so funny.  Seth (also from BL) sang a few times and that boy is NOT shy.  Those two are so funny.

Now I'm in my room trying to pack.  I've thrown everything into a pile that needs to be put in my suitcase and just realized the dresser is still full.  I see another over-the-weight-limit fee in my future.

I'm going to have to put off answering the other questions another night.  Sorry, but I can hardly keep my eyes open.

To the gospel choir peeps... "Freedom is coming, oh yes I know!!"  : ) !!!

Tomorrow is my check out (weigh in).  I'm so nervous, but so excited too.  I'll post my results tomorrow night.  Keep your fingers crossed.  I'll also post some pictures after I see my family.  I want them to see me first.
