We're getting down to the finish line now and all the headaches and heartaches will soon be over. I received my new passport today so I can go and apply for our visas tomorrow. We will finalize our flights tomorrow as well and we should be off on Monday August 30th!!!
Some of you may have caught my previous blog entry (Prince and Rich) which I then deleted ( won't go into why) where I mentioned that we would be leaving Saturday August 28th.
The reason why we aren't leaving Saturday is because I messed up with my passport ( see Virgil I can admit when I screwed up). In order to apply for a visa your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the time you need the visa. My passport was due to expire this December. I ended up having to pay a hefty price to get a new passport in 2 days but it was well worth it cause our little bundle of joy is going to come home !!.
So hopefully there will be no issues in getting the visas and they should be ready on Monday just in time for us to leave.
My mom is going with us since she didn't get there the first time we were there. We should be able to celebrate Matthew's first birthday as a family. I even bought some party hats that we can all wear, although not sure how long Matthew will keep it on his head!!.
His room is all finished and it's just waiting for him.
So I figure I have 7 days left before my world turns upside down but in a good way The days of everything being about me will now be about him. To be honest I am not looking forward to changing poopie diapers (especially real messy ones) so we'll have to see how soon I can start potty training As for the throw ups and boogers that grosses me out as well and at times it makes me want to but somehow I will manage to get past this stuff and if I can't I'll call someone for help
I am sure my other half will be posting something before we leave.
The next time I post something here I will be a mommy!!!
