What's Up?

*Incredibly enough we leave next Sunday to meet our little girl for the very first time!  (I actually leave early on Friday morning, 2/4, to go to the Created for Care Conference--that means I leave in 9 days!)

*It's been snowing like crazy.  Hoping that early February brings A LOT less snow.

*Searching for some good books for our Kindles for the trip.  (I read an excerpt from Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali .  It was recommended by It's Almost Naptime.  The excerpts are fascinating--this one is definitely on my must-read list.)

*On Monday Nana did a "trial run" with M and T while J and I were off renewing our passports (because, you know, it's not like we've known for well over a year that we would be traveling! ;)  And don't you know our new passports came today in the mail--that was thankfully fast!  (Thank you, Nana!  M & T are counting the days until you come back!)

*I'm working on the photo albums for little sister's family and for her.  Still have to write a letter for her family.

*We are completely vaccinated!  As a matter of fact, JMill got the last of his shots today. (In total we are good to go for Hep A/B, Polio, Meningitis, Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Flu and Tetanus.)

*Over the past 2 nights I repainted both M and T's bedrooms from when I did my touch-ups with the paint that was a whole shade darker than it was supposed to be.  I'm so glad that job is done--there were really a lot of other things I would have rather been doing, but those splotches all over the walls were pretty unsightly.

*One of my very best friends is NUMBER 1 on the girls waiting list!  Waiting with her for the call.

*And I just realized that our little girl is no longer 6 months old, as of last Saturday she is now a 7-month-old. :)  Sweet age--can't wait to meet her!


  1. It's almost time! You're going to love it there...

  2. Its all coming so fast! Glad you are staying busy!

  3. I can't believe you're coming to the Created for Care conference right before you leave for ET. I'll see ya there :-)
