May 2011

Quick question for the BTDTs:

Is it okay to wear short sleeved blouses/tee-shirts in ET or should I stick to 3/4 and long sleeves only? I have way too much stuff right now, I need to edit what I plan to pack.

*Nothing to see here, just having a minor packing dilemma atm!*


This is what I’m signing up for?

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and future moms!

Just when I had resigned myself to a long, hard slog of waiting for a court date that could be up to a year away…

Yes, that’s right! I have a court date, everybody! May 30th, to be exact. Booked my flight this morning, and now I’m scrambling to get my stuff in order before I leave for Addis on the 27th!

Not sure whether my MOWA letter will be in place by the time I appear in court, but I’m too excited to dwell on that right now. I’d much rather focus on how amazing it’s going to be to finally meet my daughter! Wish me luck!

ETA: My court date changed from 5/20 to 5/30, so I changed the dates above to reflect my new itinerary. It’s all good!
