Countdown to Korea: 5 Days Left

Okay. So how can there only be 4 days left?! What in the world did I do with my 5th day? OH... that's right... I played on Facebook, did some laundry and found out that the new bag I got for my toiletries is too small...

I came up with yet another list of things I need to go get, so I'm thinking tomorrow Claire and I will head back to the Mall... and Walmart. 

I did finally decide what clothes I want to take for Charlie. I packed a few too many, but I just know that if I don't, then I'll wish I did. The first time I ever tried to pack 'lightly' was when Claire was born. I figured we'd be gone for a couple of days (like most other people I know when they adopted domestically) so I only packed the bare necessities. And of course we ended up staying for a good week. Good think I knew where a mall was as we literally had to go buy more clothes. But I digress...

I keep looking at my suitcases and I go back and forth as to whether they're too big, or not big enough. The only way I'll know for sure is if I actually start putting stuff in there. Right now I have little 'piles' everywhere. I don't know what I'm waiting for... maybe it's because I'm afraid I'm going to forget something, so I have everything out so I can see it. I've discovered that I'm really bad about if something is out of sight, it is soooo out of mind.

Well... hopefully I'll have something more to report tomorrow... time is passing quickly!

Get to packing, chicka!!!! My vote is for 6-9 month stuff, that is what Briar was in when she came home and she was nearly the exact same size as Charlie is now!

I'm soooo with you on the out of sight out of mind thingy! I'm so afraid of forgetting something, I'd have to lay it all out so I can 'see' it also! So happy for you! Hoping for a great trip and I'll be looking for posts and pictures! :)
