First things first...

In case anyone is wondering how things are going in the trip preparation department, I just want to let it be known that I am definitely trying to prioritize:

I've replaced the batteries in my cuckoo clock. (you're welcome to all those keeping my children at my house)

I organized my cookie cutters.

I forgot to bring home Tracey's daughter from dance and had to turn around and go back and get her.

I took Quan and Candie to the dance studio instead of speech class. (That's why I was a bit late, Vicki ;)

So. When is it I'm leaving again? ;)

I'm just glad you remembered where you left Quan and Candie and came back to get them on time so I didn't have to put them on the curb :)

You poor thing!!! I wish I lived closer to help you out. I just cannot wait to follow you to China again. Are you doing MAW again??

Can I hide in your suit case and can you ask the pilot to drop me off in Wuhan?????? I need my Madelyn!!!

Love you!

Oh Laine girl-you crack me up. Rebekah and I were talking yesterday about how busy you must be right now and how you manage all that you do!

DiJo said...

OK - You sound like me 2 years ago.. I literally got in a car accident in the parking lot at BSF the day before I left for China. Totally my fault! So, do not get behind the wheel as departure gets close!!! :)

Can't wait to follow you on MAW!!!

I know I haven't been around here much, but I wanted to pop in and just let you know that I continue to pray for your sweet boy. I can't wait to follow that are SO close.

By the way, as always, you crack me up! Love you, girl!

It was SO wonderful to meet you and your wonderful family last weekend!
We are praying that you have a WONDER-filled trip to your precious Kevin!
Looking forward to meeting him next time you are down our way.

You crack me up! btw, I'm gonna bring our "entry" fee by your house tomorrow and leave it in the mailbox since I've waited so late to send it. I didn't forget--had to wait on my income tax to come back and I just got it today! So excited for you!

You make me giggle....organizing your cookie cutters:)

I am so excited! I love cuckoo clocks...something about the ticking sound is very comforting...reminds me of my Mimi.

Love you girl and I am praying for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not a doctor, but I think you may be suffering from the very well documented "Mommy Brain"! I can't wait to follow your journey!

You never know when you may need to put your hands on the heart shaped cookie cutter instead of the candy cane...
I've been avoiding some too! But it's time for "game on" getting ready. See you in CHINA!!!
