Waiting + cookies – walking = Need new jeans

February 26, 2007 at 4:31 pm 3 comments

So this last month I’ve been waiting for my referral and because of waiting for my call I put my daily walk on hiatus. And because of certain young girls who stand in front of stores pushing their drugs, I mean cookies, let’s just say my jeans are a tiny bit snug. Ok, they’re tight. BUMMER.

Our tickets arrived and we’re packing for the big journey. It’s not quite real to me yet. We meet our girl a week from today! I’ve been saving little things for gifts for the kids in the orphanage. It’s such a darling little bag filled with board books, teething rings, tiny socks, ointment, stickers and funny hair clips. We also want to bring the nannies and orphanage workers gifts too. How can you thank someone for taking care of a baby who will be your daughter? Somehow nice lotions and leather-bound books seem inadequate. I’m bringing premie formula for Isabel for them to get her started on so that she can gain a bit before coming home with me. I looked around today at more slings and cozy warm outfits for her.

So, someone please come and sit with me while I pack and keep me sane. I will gladly give you a full box of thin mints. Well, maybe not a fullbox…

    T- I have all kinds of back stock from Sew Many Friends- do you need stuff like onesies, bath towels, bibs, etc etc? Lemme know… Remember to bring an infant carseat! Right Start has some great car seat bags that I still use for carrying the carseats when we travel. Unfortunately I gave away all our baby equipment when we moved here.

    I think the thin mint boxes are getting smaller…I used to not be able to eat a whole box….now I look down and they are gone! Thin mints for the babyhouse workers!
