We are making progress on the Almighty To-Do list. Our recent accomplishments include the following:
*We set up the crib. (I think I already mentioned that.)
*We made arrangements with the petsitter and the builder.
*We made housesitting plans with my parents. (I still have to review the instructions and write new ones where necessary.)
*We now have a ride to the airport (5AM limo service!) and home from the airport (Thanks, T&D! You're saving us a harrowing late-night drive home after flying with a baby all day.)
*I'm completely done at work for the rest of the month! I don't have to worry about work until October. The last two days were pretty chaotic, and I wasn't exactly Ms. Attention Span for much of it, but it's done.
*We have flight reservations and hotel reservations. We also signed up for an abridged version of the tour of Beijing. The standard tour is 4 days long. Ours will be 1.5 days. Trust me, it's better that way.
*We have gifts to give - Cape Cod baseball caps for the gents and mini-totes with bottles of nail polish in them for the ladies. We have red wrapping paper.
*We have Skype. I had some errors while downloading it, but when I tested it, it seemed to work.
*We have good news from this friend and this friend - they have made it to China! Only a few more days till they get their kiddoes!
*We have super-good news from this friend. Ready for it? Actually, go look at her blog and find out for yourselves. *grin*
(The bits of news weren't on our To-Do list, but I was excited for them all, so I had to share.)
My husband's first day of school is tomorrow. I'll have the house and the To-Do List all to myself until he gets home. I hope it'll be another productive day. All these To-Do List filled days are getting tiresome, however. I wish we were leaving to get AwesomeCloud right now. Although, if that wish were granted, I'd have to add the caveat that I also wish we were finished packing!
