Busy Weekend


This is our last weekend before going to China ( I was reminded of that by Mrs. Hilton). Today we took the car seat out of the van (yep that is what I said) we forgot to adjust the shoulder harnesses before our friendly neighborhood fireman put it in the van for us. We knew what we were doing this time so it was much easier to do. Then we had some grocery shopping to do we needed some staples in the house before we leave so when we return we will have what we need on hand and wont have to go to the store. One more trip to Walmart for some swim diapers and a sippy cup now we are done with that. We figured out how to download movies from our Video camera to our computer and then to a DVD. We want to make sure all those priceless videos from China are safe and sound. We got SKYPE set up for our family and friends so we can talk to them while we are away. Riz took care of all the yard work one last time before we go.

Then we decided to relax and do something not related to anything planning or trip related.

Riz and I went to dinner tonight to our favorite Mexican restaurant and then went for a walk on the beach. It was nice to dip our toes in the water and feel the sand between our toes. We talked about planning a beach get away while we are off this summer. We have friends who know of some great beaches in Florida's panhandle so we may check it out this summer. We live 20 min. from the Daytona Beach but we want to find a small Beach town to spend a few days with Sophia.


Tomorrow I have a baby shower...no not for me but for my sister in law Tabby. She is having a baby boy in Aug. and her baby shower is tomorrow. So, tomorrow will be a busy day as well with all shower related activities. Tomorrow night we will finish up any last minute details for our trip. I need to re-check our paperwork, electronics, carry on, and of course reweigh the suitcases for the 900th time.. Currently they weight 38 and 40 pounds. Monday will be our cleaning day.I want to clean the house from top to bottom one last time before we bring Sophia home. Riz will wash both cars and fill the gas tanks(who knows how high gas prices will be in 2 weeks LOL). Tuesday is grooming day LOL, hair cuts (I am getting a color), eyebrows waxed, Manicure and Pedicure. and coffee with our best friends Tuesday evening. Wednesday is our day of rest we are doing nothing but relaxing LOL we will see.


Sorry I know this is a long and rambling post but what I am trying to say is that we only have 5 more sleeps to go before we leave for China...Holy Cow....
