Why is it...

That I live with a pile of books, magazines and papers next to my bed and only think of cleaning it up right before we need to go to Ch*na?

That I need to make an eye, dental and gyn (yucko) appt. right before I need to leave for Ch*na. I had plenty of time to get these done earlier.

That I live everyday with glasses with a big scratch on them and only think of getting new ones right before we need to leave for Ch*na.

Everyday I live with many drawers that can be classified as junk drawers and only now do I feel this burning desire to have them perfectly clean? And that goes for the garage, too!

That we may attempt sprucing up the landscaping before we go? Will Emma and Ellie even notice? LOL

The list goes on...

My husband loves it when I do this, it's just so easy for him! I'm going to tell you what to say to me!

Tell me to chill and don't sweat the small stuff! Tell me to just go to China and get our girls! And have some fun while we're at it!! Don't worry about the mess here and there and everywhere!

Thanks ladies!! You're the best!!

Regarding Blogging in China I think I am going to send the posts to Katie and have her post them for me! 2nd choice is for me to e-mail them to my blog- I'm thinking I would probably mess this one up? Thank you for your great ideas!! Can't wait!!

There ya go!! I just told ya! LOL, I love nesting!! My problem is that I need to be giving birth or adopting 24/7 365 in order to keep up with these boys! I mean come on man! Does that sock really go on the counter?

First thing I thought of too - Nesting! Isn't it wonderful that you are feeling that way?? That means it is getting closer every day!

That is so funny, we are leaving on our trip 2 weeks from today, and I just cleaned my bathroom drawer - what a mess! Going on a trip gets me motivated too. And I love coming home to a clean house. :)


Laura L. said...

Yep, sounds like you're traveling soon!
Just gotta get all those things done, and couldn't ya just work one more appointment in? ;) Well, do the big stuff that really needs to be done and let the rest go.

Take care of you, by doing your doctor appointments or whatever. Cleaning out junk drawers can wait.

Oh my goodness, I am doing the same thing! I am noticing all these little things that need to get spruced and driving myself crazy trying to get it all done! I just finished cleaning out the drawer full of hair bows/barettes/ponytail holders! Like that is gonna be the first thing Abbey will go look at! ~breathe, my friend~

I am so excited it is about time for your trip to bring those beautiful blessings home. It is good you think of all the things that need to be done, as I'm sure your time to work on them when you get back will be difficult. It is true, the girls will not notice any of the mess, they will be in such ahh of their forever family. My prayers are with you as you prepare for yet another amazing journey God has lead you to. Hugs and Kisses!

I'm laughing right now because we are probably a year away and I'm already starting to nest. I cleaned out the fridge and a closet last week. And I made an eye appointment.

Don't sweat the small stuff. *grin*

As long as you appreciate a "do as I say, not as I do" approach, I can say all that too you!

I cleaned things I had never thought of cleaning before. Of course, it wasn't even on the trip to bring them home! Now that I am awaiting that... I feel a HUGE urge to MOVE! LIKE that is ever goign to happen!
