3-Word Sunday "To Do Lists"


Three words to sum up last week? How hard can it be to select three little words?
We seem to be busy, busy and busier as each week goes forward. We finally typed up a "to do" list for our pre-China travel tasks. What a list. We also have a copy of one from here.

If you have one, please share so we can compare!! Lots to do, yet the past LONG WAIT has lulled us into thinking it may not happen for months.

Yet, IT IS getting closer. IT may be July! How excited and how unprepared can we feel? (I always did work better under pressure). If not July, then August at the latest.

WHAT TO DO?
WHAT COMES NEXT?
WRITE MORE LISTS?

Congratulations to all waiting families through January 22nd (we haven't seen an OFFICIAL confirmation on this date, we expect it on Monday). Happy Referral Days are here!

*Show & Tell is combined with our weekly Three-Word Sunday...

Is "Enjoy the journey" on the list? 'Cos it should be...such an exciting time and now so close. Wishing you an easy time of getting it all done in time.

Lee said...

What Robyn said. Hope you can make some time to stop running in the chaos to enjoy some of the process too!

(Might be hard ... those lists seem daunting.)

I'm so excited for you! Getting so close! I know the long wait has been so hard, but now comes the FUN part! I thought the days leading up to referral, and then to travel (and of course REFERRAL DAY) were just so cool, can't match it! There is nothing like it. I miss those days. :-( Enjoy the journey as others have said! I know you are!

(Thanks for the kind words on my blog regarding the loss of my dad.)

How exciting. No matter how hard you try to prepare, you may never be ready until the moment comes. Take a deep breath....Exciting times are ahead of you!

You GO Alyson and Ford!!! LOVE the few check marks on the packing list - you'll make it carry on only yet! Packing is soooo much fun when you know that when you unpack that bag on the other side of the world, SHE is waiting for you!!!

Best kind of "to-do" list there is...hoping with you that you are "next!" :-)

OziMum said...

Too true! Holy Cow! It COULD be NEXT MONTH!!! So... you ready?!! Who am I kidding?! Since when is ANYONE ever ready?!!! (or is it just me?!)

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

I was only thinking of a to do list the other day... need to get started on that...

a Tonggu Momma said...

You are getting so, so close! And you have a great blog.

You sound much better prepared then we were our first time around. I now have a master list I compiled from everyone else because I was so caught-off-guard and disorganized!

Then again, I now have A LOT more time to get everything done before our second referral.

I am so happy for you guys!!

I am trying to put together a list of recommended adoption books for parents and children at the new blog No Place Like Home and was wondering what you guys would recommend.

Julie said...

It has to be July for you. Thinking good thoughts!

T&W said...

Oh yes! The List. Can you believe we could be next! Dave's Referral Estimator just gave me chills!!
