Up and down
Back and forth
Chaos and calmness
Happy tears then stressed tears
Anxiety and peace
I am running around like a lunatic trying to get everything together.
When I'm not physically running around my brain is going through everything that I need to be doing.
My mother-in-law asked me if I was packed.
I laughed and said,
"If you mean that I know where my suitcases are then yes."
She said "at least you have Little Miss' clothes ready..."
I laughed again.
She said, "the ones that you bought her..."
I laughed again. I've bought two dresses.
(both beautiful Poppy Dips)
So, no, no one has enough clothes for this trip.
Not me. Not my husband. Not my daughter.
That's cool because we still have 9.5 days before we leave.
Apparently my tactic of not buying clothes "too early" backfired...
That is just one way that I am fully unprepared, but it's a good example.
It stresses me out. The details stress me out. My unpreparedness stresses me.
It makes me cry.
Then I think about IT...the big picture...
I AM BRINGING HOME MY BABY!!
And then my crying turns to laugh-crying because
I just cannot stinkin' believe it.
Ready or not.
Here she comes!!!
