Meg and I are waiting for the airport shuttle now. I think we're all packed. If we forgot something, OH WELL. You know me, I'm NOT a light packer :(
I just hope I have all my paperwork.
I'm going to try and BLOG everyday. I hope I don't run into any problems, but if I do, Lisa will help out and Tina from "The Story of You" is watching out for me too!
Watch for posts on our Travel Journal.

And we are on our way to China! I'm almost packed, except for last minute things. Tomorrow I need to make a run to Walmart and Kohl's, get the kids school clothes ready for the next 2 weeks, and grocery shop. Right now I'm still doing laundry for the kids and triple checking my paperwork. I know, I know, what did I do all week, right? I don't know. Shopped a lot. and walked around in disbelief that this was actually going to finally happen after 2+ LONG years!

Almost packed!  My airport shuttle has been reserved, they'll pick us up at 3:45 AM Thursday night..what an AWFUL time.  Am I supposed to go to sleep? Get up at 2:30 and take a shower and do my hair?  Who's gonna do that?  What if I go to sleep and sleep in?  Remember HOME ALONE?  That's my nightmare.  At the prices flights are now (mine went from $1200 to $4300) I can't afford to miss any!
OK, break time over, back to packing, I've only put it off a week, my piles of clothes were getting dusty so I thought I better put them in a suitcase.

need a GEEK SQUAD!

If anyone can help, please email me.  My playlist will NOT load on my computer. It's been at least a week now. NO MUSIC!!  It's driving me nutz!  It plays on all the other computers in the house and yours too.  We've cleaned out the cache, and reloaded all the "players" and still nothing works.  Anyone know what's wrong?

OK friends, 
 Help us choose a name for our Little Dumpling.  It's coming to the end of the road here and I still can't decide which name to choose for her.  I keep changing her name and my family just rolls their eyes. Mike said whatever name I decide is OK with him.. I think he's sick of the indecision :)
Maybe with your help we can figure this out.  So many cute names, only one little girl.  I'm leaving in 5 days ( Thursday night) and need to make a decision quickly.
If you have any other suggestions, leave a comment or shoot me an email. 
Thanks for your help :)
