One more day!!!!

My head is spinning...I can cry on a dime!...I can't sleep...I can't concentrate...What does this mean? I'm leaving on Saturday to spend a week with Caroline!!!!! YEA!! On Saturday morning, my mom, stepdad and I fly out to Guatemala! I am so excited! I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the last several days. I am still in the process of packing, but so far...2 suitcases full of stuff for our little angel! I believe that Caroline is between sizes, so I've packed a smaller and a larger size for her. I've included toys, diapers, a baby carrier, you name it and I've probably packed it! I also decided that I didn't want her to eat the Guatemalan baby cereal, so I've packed TONS of the rice cereal for her. My friend, Caroline's wonderful soon-to-be pediatrician, asked me if I was planning on feeding all of Guatemala! I guess that means that I've packed too much cereal???? :)

Tomorrow at school, my class is throwing me a "surprise" baby shower. Yes, I know "surprise", but I already know about it! My fellow teachers spilled the beans, but I didn't let on to my kids that I knew about it. You can just sense the excitement in the air! I'm not sure who's more or the students! Stay tuned for pictures!
I'm bringing my new laptop to Guatemala with me so that I'll be able to post pics and keep in touch with Tim. By bringing my laptop, I won't have to use the one in the baby room, since that room is a total petrie dish for germs! I also won't have to pay out the wazoo to use the business center. However, a little glitch is that I don't know how to use it! I consider myself somewhat intelligent, but this laptop has thrown me for a loop! Who knew that Windows Vista would be so difficult???!!!

Anyway, I have to go pack and iron :(. My mom should be arriving soon to help motivate me! I hate ironing!!! Stay tuned for the next chapter of Caroline's life!

No laptop for me...I'll be sitting in the Petrie dish. :)
