Default Turn-in day jitters? Anyone?

Hey there,
You all seem like pros at this but I've just been curious if y'all get turn-in day jitters? This summer marked my 3rd season competing and it seemed that no matter how I did the weekend before, I ALWAYS get a little nervous before I build my boxes... Am I crazy?
Once I've got the first box done and into the judges then I'm good to go

I'm usually worried about getting boxes turned in on time. Seems we always cut it close.

I don't know if I'd call them jitters. We get excited, I always want to start earlier than I need. Have to calm down and be patient. Nothing better when you finish putting that box together after a couple days of solid effort. Well, except for maybe a walk!

Lynnae,

Far from the "pro" insight you're lookin' for I'm sure. I get anxious as heck around turn in time!!

In Duvall we (this really means me...with Katie looking at her dad like he's crazy) built a box upside down!! Dropped another one!! The silver lining...got calls on both!!

We have a saying after our last turn in "it's all over but the crying." Kind of a sweet relief...equal parts good and bad feeling (I LOVE it!!).

I've only been competing a little over a year. I don't get too nervous when I'm filling my boxes, cause I got something to concentrate on. After the last turn-in is when it starts for me. I'm a nervous wreck then. Waiting for awards time is tough, especially when you think you cooked a good product.
