Sorry---that's how I feel right now!

We got home late in the afternoon on Thursday, and I leave Saturday with my sister to head back.

Here's what's happened (or needs to happen) in the week in between:

Grade the set of Research Papers that I hauled with me to Russia that I never had time to grade (finished, finally, this afternoon)

Give finals to both of my classes (finished about 7:00 tonight)

Grade the finals, figure final grades, and post them to the college websites.

Recover from what feels like a sinus infection, but hopefully isn't

Get the paperwork, etc., and "stuff" ready to go and get it packed into suitcases, along with giving advice to my sister on what to take with her

Answer people who ask, "aren't you excited?" with "well, I WILL be, but I don't feel like I have time right now."

I'm sure that there's more...that's all I can remember right now!

AAAAHHHH! Just have to remember WHY we're doing this!

Oh man! I can totally remember that! Seriously, I knew we were going back to pick up Small Fry... there was so much to do, and the plane ride... UGH! I was dreading that third trip just having come off of trip 2. It truly will be worth it when you are home with your little girl. You will get it all done, and be home before you know it! You can do it!!!

It will all get done. Just take it all one thing at a time. You can do it!

Hopefully, after tonight and maybe tomorrow you can be done with school and can focus on your travel plans and packing.

I am SO,SO happy for you!!! It is a lot to think about, and I don't know if I was too excited until I got on the plane.

YOu can do it!!!

Well, that'll show me to wait a week without checking a blog!

It will all get done, and what doesn't won't stop the world on it's axis (spelling?) I can't wait to see the photos!

Merry Christmas!

Oh - how I understand! It is awful to have a job that won't let you go when you need to!!!

As if this time of year is not total chaos already, add in bringing home your daughter. (We did that last year with our three boys at this time). It is hard, but so wonderful! You will do great. Praying for peace and health for you as you get ready to go again.

You are too funny! I know you are busting at the seams with excitement.
