Stuff that's done
1-Plane Tickets bought.
2-Transportation arranged to and from airport.
3-Visas arriving by Thursday. Yikes.
4-New money being picked up on Tuesday.
5-Court documents completed for hand delivery during first trip.
6-Clothes laid out in some semi-organized fashion.
7-Small Gifts for S have been purchased.
8-Starting on docs that expire prior to reasonable anticipated court date.
9-Found pocket translation book, travel book, and "Russian for Adoptive Families" CD and book. (I say that because its incredibly difficult to locate things you bought a year ago)
10-Bought necessary travel items- Converter, tiny hairdryer, Extra camcorder battery and DVDs. And this super tiny iron. It may take me an hour to iron one shirt, but darn it, we will not be wrinkled!
1-Missing suitcase. How does that happen?
2-Unable to find solid-colored black winter hat in any store. (Finding a bathing suit, however, would not be an issue, despite it being 40 degrees outside, stores all look like were ready for a beach party)
3-Trying to lighten up the suitcase FULL of orphanage items I've been collecting for a year. Should we just ship it? Should we just man up and have to lug three suitcases? Should I just pack less stuff? Split it between trips?
4- Trying to get a handle on work since I will be gone next week.
5-Trying to get the house in some sort of clean, working order. Yeah right.
6-Go get the happy pill prescription filled that the doctor gave me so that I don't give Chad bruises on his arms while flying or make other passengers scared/angry about my absolute terror of being on a plane.
Things that need your prayers because they are making me hyper ventilate.
1-Our home study is expiring on May 27th and some other documents that need to be signed off on by "she-who-must-not-be-named" are expiring even sooner than that. We are still up in the air about how we are going to juggle this one. Waiting to hear from agency if there is a better solution.
2-Confusion about some documents. I am trying to be proactive and not use the approach "we'll wait until someone tells us it isn't right/is expired" and trying to get a jump on these things and do them now since we are going to Columbia on Tuesday anyway to Apostille our court documents.
3-Freaking out about how much money we are spending right now.
4-REALLY freaking out about how much money we are going to spend NEXT TIME. Yikes.
5-That nothing (aka Visas) are held up and send me into a tizzie. I feel one coming on.
