One Week

I just heard "the word". Our embassy appointment has been confirmed for May 4th. We are leaving in one week to go pick up our son!!


Holy smokes.

I need to quit buying toys & start making a dent in "the list". Seriously, my cart at T*rget yesterday looked more like I was Christmas shopping than getting ready for a trip. I had a list. I just chose not to use it.

For now, I will go to bed in denial & dream about bringing home my son (and, of course, in this dream, everything is neatly packed & ready to go).

Tomorrow, look out...I will be a woman with lists a-plenty on a mission!

Mommy's coming, Little Man....................

Yea!!! So excited for you!!!

I'm a list gal, too. Write those lists and check them off. That's how you will survive this week ahead.

Make sure and put "laptop" on your packing list ... so that you can check in with us all while you are gone.
