Tomorrow morning I’ll wake up and the 48 hour countdown will begin. These hours are always fraught with absolute insanity as I try to squeeze every last drop out of the moments left with the kids I already call mine before I bring home another child who will rock our world. I also usually try to pack 72 hours worth of chores into the hours leading up to wheels up.
This time isn’t quite as relaxing as when FPD went. This time, there is uncertainty about health and timelines, and so much more. I think I have PTSD from our Out of Africa 2010 experience. I know I won’t be stuck in China that long, but…what if?
Tomorrow I’ll put the finishing touches on the packing, and then show you how we crammed stuff for three people for two weeks into two carry-on suitcases and two backpacks.
