Nervous About Chicago

  • What if I'm the only one who doesn't really know anyone?
  • What if I show up and no one knows who I am?
  • What if I don't like everyone?
  • What if everyone doesn't like me?
  • What if my dress isn't right?
  • What if my clothes are wrong for the weather?
  • What if I can't keep up?
  • What if I get lost?
  • What if I can't find the hotel?
  • What if I can't sleep?
  • What if I snore and my roommate hates me?
I know that the majority of this is not likely, but my brain is working overtime on this. Am I the only one?

You are not alone with these thoughts..I have thought them all too today. It'll be awesome, just be yourself :) Can't wait to meet you!

Take a deep breath. Everybody has different levels of anxiety about this trip. My biggest is clothes. At least you can wear a dress. I can't find one that doesn't make me look pregnant. Please try not to worry.

Gail said...

Hey I just found your blog. It will be a great trip. Everyone has some of the same concerns. Its all good. :) Can't wait to meet everyone!!

Here are the answers:
•What if I'm the only one who doesn't really know anyone?--But we do know everyone. I think one of the girls is making up this profile of us all. •What if I show up and no one knows who I am? I think nametags are the way to go. I am sooooo bad with names.
•What if I don't like everyone? How could you not like me?
•What if everyone doesn't like me? Ditto the last answer-How could we not like you?
•What if my dress isn't right? I'll lend you my wrap!!!!
•What if my clothes are wrong for the weather? Layers-I've travelled lots and I always have multiple layers to add or subtract. Or we just stay inside and drink.
•What if I can't keep up? You talkin' to me with the bad feet? Go see these boots I plan to wear and can walk maybe 10 feet before sitting down.
•What if I get lost? •What if I can't find the hotel? Put some money in your shoe for a taxi, with the address of the hotel or just call the hotline number we were sent.
•What if I can't sleep? Stay up and drink with us.
•What if I snore and my roommate hates me? How could that be. My DH snores so I'm used to that!

In other words. We will have a blast. Lets all get out of our comfort zone. Even if just for 48 hours. Luvs you!

Hey don't stress it, at least you got invited ;p.

Have a great time Steph!

We are all in the same boat together, it'll be fine! Can't wait to meet you.

Steph said...

Y'all are so sweet. :-) I can't believe it's only 5 days away!

No worries - if someone says you snore just tell them it's not as bad as them farting in their sleep. They'll never know if they really do or not and they'll stop complaining about your snoring. We all love you!

Sarah said...

Ummmm.... HELLO?!?!?! I already told you I was freaked out about not knowing you and then we emailed, and we're conspiring to eat pizza and drink wine - so why would I hate you?!?!? (LOL) I won't hate you if you don't hate me! And if you snore, I will put a pillow over my head. No big deal. I'm planning on being tipsy enough to not need other sleeping aides anyways! :-)

Steph said...

I love you, Sarah, with every bit of my cold, cold heart. You just made me feel a million times better. And I will bring earplugs for you, just in case. :-)

Joey said...

the answer to most of these questions: booze.

plus, I made name tags!

It will be super fun and you'll be saying "what was I so worried about?"

Stephanie said...

Well, I know you, so don't worry about you not knowing anyone. There is no rule saying you have to like anyone! Honestly, we are all different personalities, so there will be a bunch of potential friends out there! You have the BOOBS hotline number to call in case you get lost or can't find the hotel, so that's taken care of; If you don't want to wear your dress, I have backup clothing packed, so not to worry. Steph, we are all a bit nervous/excited, but know you have a friend in me! :) Us, Steph's need to stick together!

I keep "going there" this afternoon with worries I haven't had until today... but I agree with all of the awesome advice above. Everything is planned so well (imho), and we can all hopefully relax and have fun... Can't wait to see YOU in CHICAGO!

Bonnie said...

I like Joey's solution!

Kristen said...

Girlfriend! We are all in this together so dont you worry! Cant wait to meet you!
