Did you know, we could "possibly" be seeing the face of our son/daughter in less than TWO WEEKS?!! Yes, I'm a bit slow, it just dawned on me this morning, as I was getting dressed!!!
YIKES!!! Am I ready? Yes, and No! I've suddenly got a case of the "happy scareds"!! What happens now? Have I got all the paperwork etc that I need? Am I going to be able to get it all ready in time? If we do get a Nov allocation, are we going to be able to secure flights, so close to Christmas? If he is a boy, I have NO clothes for him - will I have time to shop, between paperwork?! (duh... there's always time to shop!)
I was at the hairdresser today, she's heard me say for 3 years... "We're adopting from China... no, still no news". BUT Today... I told her we'd DEFINITELY see Mini before Christmas (if only in a photo!) I said, the next time I see you, I'll have a photo! I also pre-warned her, that I'm definitely seeing her the day before I leave for China, so I can have fresh colour and she can straighten my hair (it usually lasts about 5 days, when she washes & straightens it!!!). Priorities!
I also swung by T@.rg.et as Miss M needed new hair clips for school. I walked out with a pair of Capri's and a tee for me, the BB.c version of Pr!de and Prejud!ce (with Colin Firth) DVD, a pair of tiny size 3 pink butterfly slippers for Mini (once again, hopefully she is a she!) - they were only $3! bargain! 3 pairs of boxers for H-Man to sleep in, then my "travel" thinking kicked in. I bought a travel size cleanser and moisturiser and a travel mineral foundation compact. Can you believe that "travel" could be in 8 weeks... or less?!! And no, I didn't get the hair clips!!! I must be "(paper) pregnant" - my brain is a sieve!
I feel so warm and fuzzy! Perfect for a date with Mr Darcy tonight!
