According to our agencies estimates, we will be leaving for China in exactly four weeks and 2 days. That means I have around 15 more days of school left before I become a mother of two. Five more weekends without a baby in our lives (one of those in CHINA!!!!). I am starting to get anxious. I am to busy to spend much time dwelling on what is about to happen. Sometimes I think that it is so great that I have some much to do because I can't dwell on what is about to happen. Others I would just like to sit down and spend and evening research her province or read the adoption books that I never read (pretty sad considering I have had over two and a half years to get the reading done) or learn a little Mandarin from the CDs that were loaned to me by a student's mother or sewing to relax. But instead I am reading anatomy and physiology textbooks and studying biochemistry (HATE THAT CLASS) and grading and making lesson plans. It is getting harder everyday to do work and not to just work on packing or getting the house ready. Right now I should be working on my next section of biochem but am posting this instead. This afternoon I switched my summer and winter clothes around and cleaned out the coat closet instead of making a quiz. All that means is now I get to stay up later this evening to get everything finished (UGHHHHH). I will be so happy when it is May 16th and this class is done and I only have a couple of more days of school before I am free to do nothing but love on Annika and Alex for 3 months.
By the way, they attempted to deliver our package today but for some reason it was not actually delivered. Hopefully it will be delivered tonight while we are sleeping.
