I should be...

I should be packing...I'm doing laundry. 

I should be filling out more paperwork (yes, there's more paperwork to do!)...I'm reading blogs. 

I should be making meals to put in the freezer for when we get home with our girl...I'm playing with a new cookbook software program.

I should be buying the rest of the Christmas gifts since we will be gone during the holidays...I'm looking at ads...and ipods, but that's for me for the plane.

I should be finishing the last of the name canvases I've sold...I'm playing scrabble online.

I should be boxing up the gifts I have to mail...I'm not.

I should be mending the 2 skirts I want to pack...I've decided which fabric to use.

I should be doing so many things to get ready.  We leave in less than 2 weeks.  I am frozen with too much to do!  I keep going from task to task, but not getting any of them close to being done before I flit away.  I wish I had a check list or a to do list to keep me focused.  I just don't know where to start.


  1. Oh, sweet Emi! I'm so giddy with excitement for you! Take a few minutes. Breath deep. Write down everything that you need to do. Walk around the house so you don't forget anything. Make a packing list too. Then prioritize, delegate, and get started!
    I'm hoping to come see you in February or early spring. My LifeGroup and I have been praying since July for you and Alice and I can't wait to meet her (and see your sweet family)!

  2. Oh dear! It looks like life is in fast forward for you guys now! This may sound cliche at this point, but I'll be praying for you and Mr. Frye; particularly for peace and focus!

  3. WOW,WOW! That is wonderful news! I'd be happy to pass along some packing hints Ukraine adoption specific you might not think of. Let me know if you are interested and I'll get that to you.


  4. Rest in the fact that you will NOT get it all done. But you will get done what you need. And that will be enough. You're about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime -- enjoy it all.

  5. We leave in 2 weeks too, but we are certainly not going overseas for our adoption, so you have me beat in the "gazillion"-things-to-do category! I will pray that you can wrap your head around everything, step back, and jump back in! ((HUGS))
