Four More Days...

In four days we leave for Russia (Friday, that is--I think that's four days. My brain is sadly in "what the?... Squirrel!" mode at the moment. )

I think the important stuff is done. We have tickets, we have visas, we have pictures for court and clothes for court. All that is really left to do is figure out what to pack and then pack it. I'd really like to tak a bunch of the stuff that we'll need for trip 3 and leave it there, so I'm trying to think of that stuff.

There is, however, all of the stuff of life here that still needs to get done. Two lectures to still finish up, a few papers (about 14 to grade) and all of that to make sure I finish before I can leave. I'd really like to come home and have my final exams ready to give on the next Monday....

I'm making lists. Anything that should be on them???

Oh, and I AM reading people's blogs---I'm just too darned scatterbrained to leave interesting or coherent comments!

I am so happy you are going back to Kaluga and getting one step closer to your baby! I will be checking your blog and hoping you share lots of details! We are hoping to be in Kaluga sometimes in the early part of next year!

Take a notebook so you can keep a journal. I was SO glad I did this, and SO unhappy that I decided to just do a tape-recorded one the last trip. That was not good...to say nothing about how I lost the tape.

Have a wonderful, wonderful time. Enjoy every moment of this honeymoon.

You're in that final "Nesting" stage. Don't worry about a thing. It all works out, somehow. No one really knows how, though. It's a Mystery! : )

God Bless!
