I made it! Well, to Philadelphia in any case. Free internet access in the hotel, so I am taking advantage of it.

My first day of staging went something like this-
Woke up at 3:30am, got on a plane at 7:20am, arrived in Philadelphia at 11:00am. I took a shuttle from the airport to the hotel, that happened to have four other volunteers on it. I then had lunch with said volunteers, followed by a long line for registration (which I'm sure was designed to get us all to talk to each other while waiting). The rest of the afternoon (until 7pm) was spent getting to know the other 57 PC trainees and starting to familiarize ourselves with what the PC is about and our expectations and anxieties.

Tomorrow promises to be long...but perhaps still informative. Hey, when you're excited, sitting through long days doesn't seem so terrible. Then again, ask me how I feel about long days in a month.

Lisa - you look good. I am sure today will be intense and tiring. Mom, the boys, and I made it through the day and night. Don't worry about us--we will be fine.

Lisa, I'm glad your first day went fine. We miss you and so does Pepper. I had him on our bed with us last night and guess what he pooped already--just an initiation for us! We went to Red Lobster (gift certificate) and had one of their delicious cheese biscuits--ha, ha! Then off to see Traitor--it was pretty good--Dad's pick. Try to call tonight if you can. Love, Mom
