I can hardly believe it. God willing-- in 10 days we are leaving for Ukraine! Things continue to come together as I make last minute preparations. Who is going to watch which kids? Who will get the mail? Feed the animals? I'm prepaying bills. Going through closets. Writing up medical authorizations. Buying socks and underwear.
It all feels chaotic and sometimes I stop and say I am finished for today-- I've done enough. Smiling-- I know I will be most productive the last three days before we leave and so I allow myself to do this. Why stress out for ten days when I can narrow it down to three?
One exciting thing is that John ordered a PC network card for his laptop computer (through work) which means we will have Internet everywhere while over there instead of hit and miss! How nice will that be? However, that means that he will also be working from Ukraine now and then. Still, it is a great thing!
Thank you to all who helped raise over $500 for travel costs. It is a huge blessing. Can't wait to see who wins the pillows!
