So very Cool!

I wanted to take the time to Thank You All so very much for all of the BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY WISHES you have left for Abby on her birthday. I am saving them all for her. It is so very cool to me that on that day my baby has no idea how much her world will change and that on that special day she had so many people thinking of her.
Also THANK YOU everybody for your packing tips. Please keep those coming. I love it :)
Finally and unfortunately I am sick. The crud has been circling around for a couple of weeks and finally caught up with me on Friday. I managed to work 12 hours that day (with my sexy throaty cold voice as I was told) and yesterday (Saturday) 12 hours as well. I truly felt like death by yesterdays shift end. I came home and had soup and took NyQuil and was finally asleep in bed by 11pm. I slept until 5pm today and still feel rough so unfortunately I had to call in sick tomorrow. I hate to do that at this juncture because I need all of the hours I can get right now. Hopefully I can make them up later this week. I am also hoping I am not down for too long because I need to get my visa application done, send Abby's care package off to her, and also set up my Homestudy update this week. My Homestudy expires on December 18th and must be current while we are in China so unfortunately I will have to pay yet again for something I will only need another month. That's okay though, Abby is worth it :)

I hope you feel better soon!! I am still hoping that you get a TA before Christmas - anything is possible! Just think the homestudy is the last update that you will need before you have your little girl in your arms!! Wishing you all of the best!

I hope you're feeling better soon. Hopefully you'll be better for this incredible Thanksgiving, when you're heart is so full it nearly bursts with thankfulness!

Isn't jumping through governmental hoops just the most fun ever?
