13 days and counting

We only have 13 days until our SDA appointment! So far I am not freaking out, but I am crazy-stressed and busy. I am not sure that I have gotten to bed before 12:30am so far this week. It doesn't look like it is going to happen tonight either (I guess that I could be working on items instead of blogging, but oh well).
--------------------
I am hoping to get a lot done this weekend since we both have Friday off work. I would love to get his room completely finished. And what I mean by "finished" is started and finished. The bed needs to be put together, pictures hung, curtains/blinds purchased and hung, decorated, etc. So really nothing to do :) Also throw in packing for the trip, getting things at work taken care of so I can be gone, getting things at home taken care of, regular day-to-day stuff like laundry, bills, etc and there is no time for relaxing (or even sleeping for that matter).
--------------------
I am going to go get a few things done before heading off to bed. I just wanted to let everyone know that we hadn't fallen off the face of the earth. Please continue to pray for our appointment and that our hearts would be open for whatever child God has in store for us. Thank you!

I'm really happy for your guys! Glad to hear that you are actually starting the countdown - hehe! Time flies! Don't stess too much about getting the room put together! The first few days home are a complete blur - and you will probably be so sleep deprived and jetlag filled that you will be putting stuff together at 2:45am with no problems!

Hugs!
Amy

Staci,

I've been checking in on your blog too. I can't wait to read about your journey there next week! It's so crazy to think you're finally going! Let me know if there is anything that Kendall and I can do while you're gone. I'm sure you have offers from a million people, but I thought I'd throw in our offer too. :)

Take care and I can't wait to come meet him!
Love,
Lisa (Erdahl) :)

Oh My - you are so close to leaving! Time has just moved so quickly (for us readers anyway). Keep posting as we are right behind you and want to hear the 411 of your journey.

Be safe!
Besos, love and prayers!
