2 Days Left!

Only two more days...I can't believe it! I am not packed yet. Our washer broke this morning, so at lunch we had to go purchase a new washer so that we can do laundry tonight to start packing. Thank you Mikey for helping Jason unload the washer and dryer! I get to try out my new front load washer tonight :-) Looks like my phone's battery died also...I'll worry about that when I get back. Also, my sister went to the ER this morning in pain and it turns out that she has a kidney stone. Hopefully it will pass tonight and she'll be pain free tomorrow! What a long hectic day.

Hopefully we get some of the packing done tonight so that it's less stressful tomorrow. We will need to leave our house by 4:15am on Thursday to get to the airport 2.5 hours before take off. We're going to be so exhausted. Good thing we're doing the whole Beijing experience first so that we can somewhat catch up on sleep and adjust a little to the time change before we meet Ashlyn. Don't forget, tomorrow will be my last post to this blog and for the entire trip, I will post on the new website. On the new website, you can select the Journal tab and subscribe to my website. I think it will let you know when I update the website. Anyway...please pray for us that we don't get so stressed out over getting ready and the lack of sleep that we make ourselves sick ;-) I'm so excited about going, but nervous also. I pray that God will help Ashlyn, and Kaylyn, with this huge transition and adjustment and that she will be accepting of us as her family!


  1. I'm so sorry you had such a rough day today. Wish I was there to help you get ready. I will be praying for your sister - which one has the kidney stone?

    I know God is going to be right there with you through all of this. Ashlyn is one blessed little girl.

  2. Jess had the kidney stone...so when we met my mom at the hospital, I ran in and saw her and then mom and us switched vehicles (since she has a truck). So we used mom's truck to pick up the washer/dryer. Now we are officially broke ;-)
