3 More Sleeps

Today was important because it was the last day I planned to do errands.
I started at Old Navy where I found great new markdowns on clothes to take to Serena
at China Little Flower.

Being the mom of a micro preemie, I'm glad to have found this way to support those
who are caring for the youngest and smallest babies in China.
I have a huge duffel bag ready to go to them.
Someone from the organization is meeting us outside customs in Beijing
and we will hand over the big wheeled suitcase full of toys, diapers, and medicines.

My second and final stop was Walgreens.
I found some good deals on Fish Oil capsules and Multi-vitamins
which seem to be the gift of choice these days.

I spent way too much money and time engaged in the gift buying.
People say not to worry. I don't know why I can't help myself.
I keep thinking of something more
or better.
Is this Traveler's OCD?

The rest of the day was spent repacking a suitcase
and not really accomplishing much else.
I'm afraid the next two days will be equally as lame.
But I have all my children home
and sometimes running interference
with a house full of teenagers/young adults
and a three year old who is very sensitive to mood changes
is enough to fill a day!

So another day done.
Before I know it, I'll be counting in hours, not days.

Cami is sleeping with pigtails in her hair tonight
she says that is what Delilah does.

So we shall see.......


  1. Well I think that sounds like the most perfect way to spend your time and money ;) Love the picture of three Chinese girls on your post - can't wait to see a post beginning with a photo of two precious Chinese girls of your own together :)
    Also, I was wondering where you found the beautiful matching floral dresses shown a few
    posts ago - they are darling!
    Sara :)

  4. Happy Travels! If that crazy last minute shopping stuff is traveler's OCD- count me in as suffering from it ;)
