Woo Hoo!!

First, let me give a shout out to those end of February families who, rumor has it, will be getting the call before January 1. I am so excited for you all! And that folks concludes the February LID's! Savor the place where you are! It is utterly amazing!

Second, a welcome home to Shannon, who beamed in every single photo with her new daughter Ellie!

Third, okay I am going to give it to you all awaiting referral to travel people. This wait, for me has been far easier than waiting for our referral. I have a date, which is nearing quickly. It makes the wait so much easier and less emotional. The mounds of paperwork people tell you about, really not so overwhelming. It may have been my agency that "doled out" the paperwork throughout the last two months that made it so manageable. What I have experienced is the reoccurring thoughts of what so we need? What can we leave home? What can I buy there? What can't I buy there? Is my bag too big? too heavy? Argh! I have had packing lists for years and still I am stressing!!!

Three days and counting......ready or not here we come!

I'm so with you right now. I've been working on my packing for 2 days now and I'm still not done. I guess as long as we have all the required paperwork and our required $$$ that's all we really need. The rest is a plus. Good golly my stomach is in a total knot.

I am so excited for you...don't worry you can get "everything" you need if you forget it...and as R says "you can live without anything for a few days"! Have a great trip and buy lots of squeeky shoes, in fact buy lots of stuff...I wish I would have bought more!
