Well, it's not actually seven days until we leave. But it is 7 days until our SDA appointment. We're busy getting things ready. Packing is proving to be a challenge. I have a tendency to over pack and I am really limiting myself. Just a couple pairs of pants for each of us, 4 shirts, socks, underwear, etc. My goal is two carry-ons and one checked bag, but not sure I am going to accomplish that. UGH! I never thought I would be packing toilet paper, but sounds like I probably can't pack enough of that. We're taking a few toys for our little one, travel size magnadoodle and etch-a-sketch, toy cell phone, coloring books. Oh, and a couple of outfit options for our little one's Gotcha Day. Now... it could be really interesting if we come home with a child of the opposite sex than what we are anticipating. :-)
For all of our friends out there, I'm going to apologize right now. There are quite a few of you that I just haven't caught up with and I don't know if I am going to have time to call everyone before we leave. So... if you don't hear from me, it isn't anything personal - there just aren't enough hours in my day, but I will try to touch base with as many of you as I can.
