I'm finally here!

My day didn't start off too great.  I thought I would have plenty of time at the airport but when I got there, the lines were longer than I've ever seen, even at Thanksgiving.  By the time I got to the counter my plane was long gone, so I had to catch the next flight.  It was only an hour later, so no biggie.  But, my suitcase was so heavy I had to pay $90 in fees.  I did end up being the only person in my 3 seat row on the plane, so I got comfy and fell asleep.  I don't even remember taking off, and I woke up just before we landed.  I slept almost 4 hours.  Then I fell asleep again in the shuttle to the resort and slept another two hours, but I'm still tired.

When I got to the resort, I checked in and got to my room, which is SUPER nice.  Then I had to go down and get "tested in" and find out all of the numbers no one wants to hear.  I walked down to the cafeteria and sat and talked with some people and finally got to meet one of the peeps I met on the Facebook message boards.  There is someone here from outside of Detroit, and someone else here from Fairfax.

Then we had dinner.  It was some kind of chicken salad with nuts and grapes and celery, with sauce.  And then a moose kind of dessert.  It was SO good, and I was SO hungry.  Tara from the Biggest Loser arrived during dinner.  After dinner the new arrivals had an orientation, and a tour, and then got to go back to our rooms.  I spent the night unpacking and trying to figure out how to use the heart rate monitor.  So, I think I'm ready to go.  As I was unpacking I found a bunch of cute notes my mom hid all over in my clothes.  They're so cute... she's so cute.  I just hope one doesn't slip out of a pant leg during a class or something, hahah.

I have to be up at 5:30 for a 6am class, then a 2-3 hour hike, then etc, etc, etc.  I'll let you know all about that tomorrow.
