Happiness Abounds

I'm still flying high on the knowledge that our TA finally arrived. This morning I went into Dreamsicle's room, dumped everything out of the backpack that we have had packed for the last 3 months, and decided that we simply did not have enough stuff. Must have more stuff. Important things like More! Diaper! rash! ointment! So to the store I went. I was like a crazy woman. I'm sure it wasn't my imagination that other shoppers were giving me a wide berth as I happily scooped up lice remedies and cortisone cream.
Mcgyver mentioned something about sleeping in the 5th wheel until we leave if last night was a prelude to what he has to look forward to until then. I would randomnly wake up during the night, pull him over so that he was facing me and loudly ask him if he was sleeping. If I didn't receive a response I would simply open his eye with my finger then act surprised that he was awake too. At that time my giggle fest would take place and I would ask him for the 675th gazillion time if he could believe that we were actually going to be going to China! to pick up our daughter! In two weeks! With lots of stuff!
