Tommorow!!

Oh my gosh! One more sleep. It's 11:17 PM and I just took some Tylenol pm. I'm thinking I will probably be asleep by 2AM. Maybe sooner if I am lucky! I am now packed sort of. I weighed my my bag to check and it was around 35 pounds. I haven't weighed the carry on bag yet. I am also bringing a pack pack/purse/diaper bag. I need to do some rearranging then will post pictures. I feel like I am not bringing enough for me to wear but it's not about me is it? You will be seeing some repeats.

I went over to my Mom's this afternoon. My Sister, Brother in law, and Niece and Nephew came over plus my Brother and Sister in law to be. It was nice to hang out. Erin and Christopher were extra huggy :) I am going to really Miss them. Erin kept saying, "Aunt Jenny if you need anything we are only a phone call away!" "Just call us" She was so cute, my Sister said she is really all balled up about us leaving. We all watched the travel video my agency gave us.

Below is Erin pictured with all of the paperwork I have to bring to China. I am so worried that I will forget something. I brought it over to my Moms and had her go through the check list with me just to be sure.
I am officially banning myself from Walmart. I stopped there again on the way home tonight and picked up more last minute stuff. Still to do, Clean my Bedroom and Bathroom, get Abby's zithromax prescription filled, and get a new battery put in my watch. Not to bad. I hope I can get up early. What I didn't get done, finish painting my room and bathroom, and get my car inspected and serviced. I figure I can do that when I get back. I have off for 3 months.

I can not describe how I feel right now. It's almost like it hasn't hit me yet. I think I am probably going to loose it on the plane though. I did get a little emotional tonight saying my Goodbyes. My phone has been ringing all day today with people leaving me nice bon voyage messages. I really have some wonderful people in my life!

I definitely plan to blog while in China and post lots of pictures :) If I can't than my Sister will be my back up blogger :) So I'm off to finish what I can tonight until my Tylenol pm kicks in. I will post tomorrow before we go!
