7 days (not that anyone is counting)

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.


  1. If you don't mind rough TP then you don't need to pack your own... just some tissue packs to carry with you for emergency stuff... The TP really isn't that bad... we used it for 8 weeks and survived!!

    Packing is fun! Praying...

  2. I'm an over-packer myself!

    Best of luck and many prayers as you prepare!


  3. so exciting and thanks for sharing that excitement. the Toilet paper is a great idea!


We love hearing from our bloggy friends, but please keep this in mind.
