2 more sleeps and Happy New Year!!

I can't believe I am posting these photos but they are kind of humerus! Warning for those of you that are still waiting. Don't try and do three years of nesting two nights before you are leaving for China. My place is a wreck right now. Partly from packing and partly because I decided to change some things around and reorganize. (nervous energy I guess but I should of left well enough alone) Below I give you my messy living room. I have some curtains to hang but will that be pre China????

My dining room table is my staging area.

Went to Walmart today instead of last night to pick up last minute items for the trip, stock up for my cat's, and get a little food on hand for Abby and I once we get back. Somehow I spent $233.00???????



Abby's room, Nuff said!


So these are the before pictures! I will post after pictures before I leave. My house will be in order before I go. I am about done packing. I haven't weighed my duffel yet. I'm scared to!
I am starting to get excited and more nervous (if that is even possible). I know I can do this! I am watching John and Kate plus eight while I run around. If Kate can do it with eight then surely I can do it with one :)
My clock says 11:30 PM. Thirty minutes until 2008! What an exciting year this is going to be with so many changes and lots of fun! Happy New Year to you all. And a special Happy New Year to my little girl Abby! She doesn't know it yet but she is soon to experience a whole new world and a whole lot of love :)

Happy Hew Year Momma! Abby really has not clue as to how much 2008 will change for her with all the love from her momma!

I swear your happiness and excitement are TANGIBLE, it gives me goose bumps reading this. I'm so dang excited for you, I can hardly stand it- and you are so right, if Kate can do it with 8, we can handle one, right?! Love how the vacuum is still sitting in Abby's room- that is too funny. Good luck getting it all together before you go. Please tell me you'll be blogging or having someone blog FOR you from China??

Don't forget to put the carseat in your car before you leave - somehow it took me an hour to figure it out prior to leaving for China - Can't wait to read all about your trip - did you set up your blog so you can email posts to it - as blogger is blocked in alot of China? good idea to...if you need to know how - post to my site and I will get you the info..very easy to do..
Happy New Year !

Happy New Year Jenny,

I am so excited for you and Abby to be meeting. Looking forward to hearing the details and seeing the photos...make sure you have enough room on your digital cards to take plenty of photos:) As I have said before..."Abby is one lucky little girl to have you for her mom!"

Have a safe journey and I look forward to hearing all about it.

Love, Randi

Hi Abby's Mom, I'm a lurker who has been following your blog for a while now. Best wishes for a great trip to China and can't wait to read about your "gotcha day."
I have a blog about my daughter, who I am in the process of adopting through the foster care system. It's invite only, but I'd love to share it with you if you're interested, and your readers too! Anyone can email me and I'll send you an invite.
Again, have a great journey to get your daughter!
