So this morning we finally got the email we've been waiting for; final approval from B's social center to complete our adoption!!!

Yeah, umm.... we're leaving in TWO DAYS! Yes, we will leave on Wednesday. WEDNESDAY. Panic. That is where I've been all day, panic. So much to get done. But for tonight I'm shot so decided to come here and put to print how much I did get done today so I can see I really did make some progress.

I have spent most of today running around like a mad woman, getting a huge list of stuff done. Here's what today looked like. Items with a strikeout were completed today. Of course, these things can only be done when I'm not taking care of the kids who are here!
