Whew!

OK, so this is it! Everything is packed (I think...), 90 lbs of stuff so that two adults and a baby can survice in a 5-star hotel for 2 weeks (quite pathetic, isn't it?...) what had to be done has been done (I'm pretty sure...) and we're ready (NOT!!!). I've had my slight panic attack, the scotch and Grand Marnier are in the suitcase, and I just have to finish painting my toes before going to bed. Call me vain mommy. I'm not even bringing sandals, so why am I'm painting them? Because I still have time.

I'm really glad I started packing weeks ago: I don't see how I could have done it all this week, with the running around for last minute stuff that had to be done. Well, the baby's stuff took a long time: my stuff took an hour! Lists are your friends...

I feel like thanking so many people... If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes at least as much to go through the process of international adoption! We've been so blessed with help and support, the list of thank you's would be endless, and I don't want to miss my plane. So if you feel you might deserve a thank you, you absolutely do! And so much more than you can imagine. I'm still in awe of all the amazing friends I have...

Sooooooo... this is it... last full night of sleep for a while...

In theory, we are meeting Yummy on Monday. If nothing else, there will be pictures, I promise!

See you on the other side!

Yea! I am so excited for you. What a trip literally and figuratively. It will be wonderful, stressful, scary, hard and exceptional all at once.
