7 Days to go until we fly to Beijing! Somebody pinch me! Today has been a productive day; I have all of the clothes I'm bringing for Lilymei folded and ready to go. I have most of our meds in one location~just need to add those last minute items. I have the books, toys, and stuffed animals (Thanks Patti!) ready to go. I started to assemble the gift bags for the orphanage director, notary and registrar, our CHI coordinators, and the nannies. I still have a few things to pick up to complete the gift bags. Thank goodness for the AOSC gift shop!
The plan for this evening is to run to the BX (our Walmart/Target/whatever you want to call it) and pick up some lightweight socks, diapers, swim diapers, and wipes. I also want to stop at the commissary (grocery store) and get some Goldfish snacks, Crystal Light on-the-go packets for bottled water, and more Ziploc baggies (thanks for the tip Monica!).
Whew!!! The next couple of days are going to be crazy busy and I won't be home much. The scouts are going rock wall climbing Thursday afternoon and on Friday the boys have their music lessons and I have a manicure/pedicure appt. in the afternoon. Will I be ready by next Wednesday? I doubt it. That's ok though, I'm gettin' on that plane anyway!
7 more days until we leave! 11 days until we get Lilymei!
