1. Is it bad that I like to go to Chinese restaurants just to look at the Chinese women? I like to wonder if that is what our daughter will look like.
2. How can anyone be crazy enough to lay on a sled and fly down a curvy, icy track???
3. How can anyone be crazy enough to strap skis on their feet and throw themselves down a giant ramp to see if they can jump the farthest???
4. Please don't let Alex (or Annika) decide that their passion in life is luge/skeleton or ski jumping and lead me to an early grave.
5. I never realized that Dick Button was soooo annoying. I also never realized that he has a kind of funny name.
6. Will Alex recover from having his tonsils and adnoids removed quickly enough that we can go to Sparky's get together and see everyone?
7. How in the heck am I going to be the mother of two children?
8. How do my students keep up those dang baggy pants that have the waist around their knees? What do they do if they are being chased because there is no way they could run like that?
9. Why do we always get obsessed with people who just want to be left alone (ie Bode Miller)? Anyone who grows up in a cabin in the woods without electricity and running water is going to be different, GET OVER IT!!!!!!!
10. I really can't stand Bob Costas. For some reason he has always rubbed me the wrong way.
11. Why is Alex obsessed with hunting when we have NEVER talked about it around our house.
12. Why is that rich boys are always the ones with the hair hanging in their eyes and the ratty sneakers?
13. I have 19 pairs of sneakers and still have days that I don't have shoes that match what I am wearing. How is that possible?
14. I could never go on "What Not to Wear" because they would take away my sneaker collection.
15. Why do they not make decent clothing for plus sized tall women? Not everyone over 6 foot tall is a super model who can wear a size 8. (I actually got a catalog today where an XL was a size 12. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!)
These don't include the twenty or so random thoughts/worries that I have about the adoption on a daily basis. The most disturbing ones including
- What if she doesn't like us? What if she doesn't feel like my daughter to me?(Do you guyd think about these two also?
- What if something happens and China closes? (Very Doubtful)
- What if my dossier got lost on the way to China and that is why we haven't received our LID? (Very Doubtful)
