6 Days and I will be on my way

Just 6 more days and so much left to do!!! I think the minute I step onto the plane I will crash and burn (Not the plane, just me). So much to do and so little time. For those of you who read this blog and are in the process, here is some words of wisdom and advice.
1) start buying things now (bottles, diapers, wipes, etc.)
2) don't go crazy buying clothes (you will not know what size until referral. (I know sometime shopping is just good for a momma's heart).
3) do your homework, reading, etc. Don't keep putting it off because you have plenty of time. It sneaks up on you and then you have to scramble to get it all done.
4) relax and enjoy (do all the above early enough in advance, so you can do this one).
I know when we started this journey I lived through others who were farther ahead of me in the journey and I know what an inspiration they were to me so I hope to be passing the baton to those of you who are behind us in the journey. It is the ride of a life time and trust me when that referral comes you need to sit down and buckle yourself in because the ride gets bumpy and it goes real fast. Off to get some zzzzz's This tired momma needs them!!!

I can not believe you didn't tell me you were working with Dillon. I spoke to our rep today, Julie. she said a group of 6 were leaving on the 10th and I thought you had to be one of the 6!!! I asked her if a Debbie was going and she said yes... I came home to your blog to see if you ever posted what agency you used and low and behold I found Dillon. I know this is a God thing... I am just so thrilled. I can't wait to hear from you and know you are so busy. I would love to hear your experience. i'm going to read all your posts now!!

Debbie,

You are right! Those of us behind you are living vicariously through you. Thank you for sharing your journey. I cannot wait until you see her face. Blessings,
