Who is this woman that I am living with? It is definitely not the woman I married. She is flitting all around the house. Organizing this, packing that, cleaning places in the house that have never been cleaned. Ordering me to do this and that. Lots of the breakable non baby safe items in the house have been shuttered away and replaced with soft, safe, brightly colored toys and baby care products. Definitely nesting behavior. I truly expect to walk up the stairs and find that she has built a nest with all of the stuff she has bought this week.
And do we have lists: packing lists, shopping lists, and to-do before we leave for China lists. With just over 3 1/2 weeks until we leave it is all feeling very real now. There is still lots to do but organization-wise I think we are in pretty good shape.
Our passports/visas are on their way back to us from the New York Consulate but they are currently hanging with Elvis in Memphis, Tennessee. Makes sense I guess since it is "Graceland" after all. Not sure I completely understand shipping logistics but somehow it is faster to go to Tennessee first from New York rather than straight to Massachusetts. Either way we should have them back this week.
