We're leaving in 4 days!

Holy crap!

I can't believe that we're leaving in 4 days! We have so much to do. I should so not be at work. I should *so* not be at work and updating my blog! hee heee

We were doing awesome on our "To Do" list until Saturday when we hit this item: "Pack away SleepingAngels things to make room for EasternStar". And we haven't really moved on anything since. We still have all of SleepingAngel's stuff in her room - the molds of her hand, the cards from her birth and from her funeral, even her oxygen tubing and extra tubes for her gavage feeding. They are all sitting in her crib. Or stored haphazardly in a cardboard box. We have pretty boxes to store them in..... we just..... haven't. I think that both of us have managed to not think about having to change that room from "SleepingAngel's Room" to "EasternStar's Room". Even TinyDancer still calls it "SleepingAngel's Room". We may have to skip this item and face these emotions when we get home.

Proof that Stranger and I make a great team: I'm panicked about everything that we need to get done before we leave. He's panicked about everything that we have to do once we get there. And the whole being in another culture and not being able to speak the language thing.

I hope this experience will help to heal you in some way. I know there will always be a hole and emptiness, but I hope you will see God's plan. Let us know if there is anything you need. We can help to pack and move things too. Don't worry too much, it's all God's plan. I hope your journey is as amazing as our. Love ya. Shan

I can't imagine how difficult that must be. My thoughts are with you for safe travels and a wonderful trip!

Good luck! It will all work out, I promise.

And I'd skip that step about the "changing of the bedroom" until you return. You don't have to change it just yet, and you know me - I'm all about avoiding. ((HUGS))
