Week 7

One month, 2 weeks, 4 days. Time is flying! Here are week 7 highlights:

*Updated my to-do list.

*Kicked off donations drive at church with an announcement in the bulletin. The best part was that as I was walking into the sanctuary and trying to find a seat, the associate pastor comes up to me and is all "Oh, by the way, I just want you to come up during announcements and tell everyone what the Ethiopia stuff is all about." Just like that. No warning. I was literally shaking, but so many people came up to me after service and were so excited to talk to me about adoption and how they can help. Yea!

*My pastor's daughter gave me a whole rubbermaid bin of baby clothes to donate to the orphanage. Thanks!

*Tonight I am going to pick up a stroller. I have wanted a Sit-n-Stand stroller since I decided to adopt, but those things are stinking expensive. Then I found one on craigslist for $35. Dude, I don't care if it has stains or small rips (they will happen once I start using it anyway, especially once it makes a trip on an airplane to Chicago) so this is working out just right! I can't wait to get it. If you don't know why a Sit-N-Stand stroller is super-cool, just ask. I might have to dedicate a whole post to the coolness of this stroller.

*Strongly considered assembling bookshelves and toy box for the girls' room. This is not my favorite thing ever. Almost psyched myself up to do it. But then I read this post, and remembered how frustrating assembling baby items is, and backed out. But almost did it!

*Went to the Great Baltimore Zoo Outing of 2008. Promptly lost all my pictures when my computer spazed out. (The folder where they are supposed to be stored is there, the pictures are not.) Bummer. But fun. But a bummer. You know?

*Had a minor heart attack when examining the quantity of loot that Baby Soucy already has. That is going to be one well-dressed baby.

*Almost wet myself over the Rooney's good news. Then proceeded to exhaust the "refresh" button while waiting for Lori to post "the story of the good news."

OK, I need to know about the sit n stand...I've never heard of it! And I too almost freaked out over the closet at the Soucy's. And my eyes were definitely wet over the Rooney's.
How is your FBI going? Any word from the J family? Last I looked they were waiting over 17 weeks for a little boy. Hmmm...

Hey! Thanks for stopping by the blog and for your movie suggestion. It looks interesting - I will have to check it out!

I have enjoyed following your journey through your blog. You always have interesting posts. Looks like you are getting things checked off your to-do list!

LOL! OK, well I'm freaking over the fact that you are probably halfway done your list, and you have your amazing packing list, and all I've got is a closet and 2 travel containers of Charmin.
Where are my priorities?????
I'm so psyched that you are at Week 7. Wouldn't it be fabulous if we could travel together!!!!
