Week wrap

Another crazy week, its 20 to 1am, Saturday morning - I'm a bit blury, so I won't bore you with the details of the week!

2 more days til we board that plane! Can you believe that I've packed 4 little baggies, each weighing only 7kgs (15lbs)? 7kgs to get us through 16 days! 3 little plastic baggies with our liquids in, to show at the checkpoint. I'm not taking my straightener... which could make for some scary pictures, but I don't want the airport to confiscate it, or worse, have it blow up in China! And, I've decided not to take my laptop. I'm going to try and use the business centre's at the Hotels. I'd like to download photos to a memory stick while I'm there. So hopefully, I'll be able to get it to read in English, so I know what I'm doing!

Here's my 3 word Sunday

As busy as I am... I can't help feeling "jipped". (ripped off/its not fair/duped) I'm not feeling overly positive or enthusastic about our file collecting dust in China. I've got an awful gut-feeling that we won't be seeing Mini til next year. Which just sucks, well and truly.

I'm totally psyched that we're getting on a plane on Monday morning, to go see the awesome country, that China is... but the closer it gets, the more sad I feel, that this isn't the reason we initially bought the tickets. Maybe I'm all sad, coz its quarter to 1 in the morning, Mr T is snoring, and I can't sleep. Maybe its PMS. Maybe I'm just a loony. Whatever the reason, my heart is feeling sad tonight.

Have a wonderful trip...I think alot of people are sad right now..I think that Spring is the time for all things to bloom and the wait has taken it's toll on everyone who thought China would speed up and were disappointed again...You need to clear your mind and enjoy a wonderful trip with your family and show your kids where their sister will be from when she finally comes home to you...Linda

So sorry your heart is sad tonight. Just think...in 2 more sleeps you'll be walking the streets of the country where your daughter is!!! How cool is that?!

Have a great trip and congrats on being 26(?) months closer!! (Silly Canadian doesn't know how much each of those coins is worth.)
Regardless...hugs and congrats friend.

26 down....I still believe we will both see little faces by the end of the year and be travelling to our little ones early next year.

I'm sorry you are sad tonight. Get some rest for the trip ahead and know that I care about EWE!

I understand your feeling sad. You'll be so close to Mini while you're in China. Have a safe and wonderful time and take lots of photos. I hope you get the chance to post while you're there. Have fun!
