Somehow, it's already Wednesday night. We are leaving for Africa the day after tomorrow.
Today, I went to the law school and copied all the documents I need for our travel folder. I made TONS of extras, just in case. I need to finish putting it together tonight so that I know it's done and I have an easy 'go-to' place for all the information necessary to bring our girl home.
I also called the international adoption clinic and 1) had them call in prescriptions for M3 and 2) scheduled her post-adoption initial assessment appointment. They will actually have a nurse or doctor on hand who speaks Amharic, a language being spoken to her now--although she is not fluent, I'm sure it will be more familiar than straight up English.
Hubs did a ton of laundry today. Tomorrow, he'll be doing M3 laundry. I have almost enough clothes for her pulled already. I need to buy her shoes tomorrow while we are out and about.
I have other paperwork to gather up to put in the travel folder. I've been after Hubs to print off things, but he's easily distracted...today it was by the laundry. Start to finish. He didn't stop until every piece was done. It was kind of quaint.
I made a huge pot of spaghetti and meatballs for dinner with a side of garlic bread. We ate a BUNCH.
Now, M2 is finishing up homework and they will be in bed soon. I want to finish our travel folder tonight so it's done.
We go to the bank tomorrow to pick up crispy money. We also have to go pick up some things to occupy M3's attention, shoes for her, snacks for us and anything else I figure out we need before now and then.
This is ridiculously overwhelming, but it's almost so surreal that I can go through the motions, crossing things off the list without thinking about it too much.
